A Christmas Carol

A Christmas Carol is indeed a good movie with precious moral values to be learnt.

It's a movie adapted from the novel of the same title by Charles Dickens which depicts the story of a nasty old man named Ebenezer Scrooge who hates Christmas until one night, the ghost of his fellow partner, Mr. Jacob Marley pays a visit to warn him about his soon-to-be encounter with three Christmas spirits; Past, Present and Future.

Each spirit teaches him valuable lessons about relationships, compassion and also the need of understanding other people. As Scrooge travels through time from the past to the future, he begins to realize that his attitude towards Christmas must change in order to live happily with those around him.

Bah, humbug! Look at his surprised expression when Marley paid him a visit on Christmas eve.

I think most people who appreciates literature like Oliver Twist and other works of Charles Dickens have familiarized themselves with the story of Christmas Carol and might have even watched the various versions of the movies too. There's one that I remembered. The title of the movie is The Ghosts of Christmas Eve (if I am not mistaken because it has been a long time ago) and the story is inspired from the novel although it has a different storyline. The characters of the Christmas spirits remain but the name of the main cast is changed although he portrays the characteristics of Scrooge.

Go watch it if you haven't. The animation is so fantastic that the people look real.
