“Marley was dead: to begin with.  There is no doubt whatever about that.”  So begins one of the best known Christmas stories.  On Christmas eve Scrooge is visited by three ghosts- Christmas Past, Christmas Present and Christmas Future- who show him what Christmas was, is and will be for him unless he stops being so mean.

Famous lines: “Bah Humbug!” and “God bless us everyone!”

(By the way, all of the posts from numbered 1- 25 are part of an Advent calendar for a friend from school; most of the words are borrowed from other websites.)
