A short summary of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens:
In A Christmas Carol, Ebenezer Scrooge is a wealthy, but cold-hearted, businessman who cares only about making money. On Christmas Eve, he is visited by the ghost of his former business partner, Jacob Marley, who warns him that he will be visited by three ghosts.
The first ghost, the Ghost of Christmas Past, takes Scrooge back to his childhood, when he was an orphan living in a workhouse.
The second ghost, the Ghost of Christmas Present, takes Scrooge to see how his employees and nephew are celebrating Christmas.
The final ghost, the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come, shows Scrooge what will happen if he does not change his ways.
After seeing these visions, Scrooge is filled with remorse and decides to change his ways. He becomes a kinder, more generous man, and everyone is better off for it.
