Dear Diary,
I was at his office at the time. Even though it is Christmas Eve, I wasn't in the holiday spirit. When my nephew Fred came to visit, he invited me to Christmas dinner at his place the next day, but I declined. I also turn away two individuals who are trying to donate to the needy, and I reluctantly give Bob Cratchit, one of my employees, the day off for Christmas so he can spend it with his family.
Later that evening, when I got home, he felt like someone was in his house. I once had a visitation from a spirit who turned out to be her late business partner, Jacob Marley. Money boxes were woven into the shackles that bound Marley.
He said that as retribution for his avarice, he is condemned to wander the world in obscenely massive shackles. I discovered that three spirits would come to me that night and that I needed to pay attention to them in order to avoid suffering the same fate as Marley. If I don't, I could die with longer, heavier shackles attached.
The Ghost of Christmas Past is the first ghost to come to see me. He transports me to the simpler times of his boyhood. I see his solitary upbringing but am also aware of his affection for his sister Fan. I go on through his early adolescence with the spirit. We stop by my first employer's Christmas celebrations, the joyful Mr. Fezziwig, a loving mentor who treated me like family. The following scene shows Belle, my then-fiancee, and me when we were younger. When Belle realised I could never love her as much as I love money, we called it quits. Later, I'm taken to visit Belle and her big, happy family by the ghost. I feel a variety of emotions as I go through these recollections. I implore the ghost to return me to the present and was awakened in my bed. The Ghost of Christmas Present comes to see me when the clock strikes again. The ghost touches my robes and whisks me away to see several homes joyfully getting ready for Christmas. I initially meet my employee's family at Bob Cratchit's simple house. I'm interested in learning more about Bob's adorable little disabled child. The kid is Tiny Tim, the ghost informs me, and if his future isn't altered, he will pass away.
The spirit warns me to beware of both Ignorance and Want, but particularly the latter, as we reach the end of our voyage.
The Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come was the last ghost to visit me. The funeral home of a guy who is reviled by many people is where this quiet ghost leads me. Despite the fact that I was horrified by how the deceased guy was treated, the ghost is unable to make an emotional connection with anyone. Instead, his friends would only come to the burial if lunch is served, his domestic help steals from him to make some money, and one couple rejoices because their unpaid obligation to him has been resolved.
I beg the spirit to manifest someone who has experienced loving grief. I'm disappointed to see the Cratchit family mourning Tiny Tim's passing in the spirit. My terror only increases when the ghost eventually directs him to the hated man's tomb and he sees his own name engraved on the monument. Finally, I break down and ask the spirit to let me go so that I might make amends and prevent this gloomy future.
I was overjoyed to see that it was Christmas morning when I got back. I spend the day with Fred and his family and send Bob Cratchit's family a turkey in an anonymous package. The next day, I raise Bob's wages, and finally, I take on a fatherly role for Tiny Tim. From that moment on, I show love and charity to everyone I encounter and truly embody the spirit of Christmas.
