About this deal

I help to support the establishments I have mentioned -- they cost enough; and those who are badly off must go there. He was not alone, but sat by the side of a fair young girl in a mourning-dress : in whose eyes there were tears , which sparkled in the light that shone out of the Ghost of Christmas Past.

The register of his burial was signed by the clergyman, the clerk, the undertaker, and the chief mourner. He ventured to raise his eyes again, and found his supernatural visitor confronting him in an erect attitude , with its chain wound over and about its arm. It was not until now, when the bright faces of his former self and Dick were turned from them, that he remembered the Ghost, and became conscious that it was looking full upon him, while the light upon its head burnt very clear. Scrooge took his melancholy dinner in his usual melancholy tavern; and having read all the newspapers, and beguiled the rest of the evening with his banker’s-book , went home to bed. stiffened his gait; made his eyes red, his thin lips blue and spoke out shrewdly in his grating voice.That, and its livid colour, made it horrible; but its horror seemed to be in spite of the face and beyond its control, rather than a part or its own expression. This was not addressed to Scrooge, or to any one whom he could see, but it produced an immediate effect. In came the boy from over the way, who was suspected of not having board enough from his master; trying to hide himself behind the girl from next door but one, who was proved to have had her ears pulled by her mistress.

This also tells us that S does not want to cook, instead he gets other people to make dinner for him. You must have been very slow about it, Jacob,’ Scrooge observed, in a business-like manner , though with humility and deference. The panels shrunk, the windows cracked; fragments of plaster fell out of the ceiling, and the naked laths were shown instead; but how all this was brought about, Scrooge knew no more than you do.

Set in the dreary streets of Victorian London, A Christmas Carol not only captures the spirit of Christmas but also serves as a social commentary on the plight of the poor and the importance of compassion and generosity. Scrooge went to bed again, and thought, and thought, and thought it over and over, and could make nothing of it. The duality reflects the two versions of S, not only his younger self and present day self, but also his happier past and miserable self now. All these boys were in great spirits, and shouted to each other, until the broad fields were so full of merry music, that the crisp air laughed to hear it.
