The Annotated Christmas Carol – A Christmas Carol in Prose
"Mr Scrooge," said the gentleman. "I have come to ask for your help because it is Christmas. I want money to help the poor people who have no money and no homes." "Aren't there any prisons?" asked Scrooge. "Aren't there any workhouses? Put these people in prisons and workhouses." "But prisons and workhouses are very unpleasant places. I am sure you want people to have a merry Christmas," replied the gentleman. "4 don't have a merry Christmas," said Scrooge. "Christmas is nonsense. It's humbug! I don't believe in Christmas. I'm not giving money to anyone else so they can have a merry Christmas." Retold by F.H.Cornish.

On Christmas Eve, Scrooge sits in his house with not a kind word for anyone; he just wants to be left alone until the "humbug" of Christmas is over. But four ghostly visitors - his former business partner, followed by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Christmas Present, and Christmas Yet to Come - show him the error of his ways, and by the time Christmas Day dawns, Scrooge is a changed person.
