The story tells the traditional festive tale of Ebenezer Scrooge is the meanest, most miserable man in London. He only cares for one thing – money.

Of all the people and things Scrooge dislikes, he hates Christmas most of all.

The story leads to one Christmas Eve when Scrooge is visited by the ghosts of Christmas past, present and yet-to-come.

They attempt to show Ebenezer Scrooge the error of his ways and teach him to learn from the past and to look ahead to become a better man.
