It’s a cold, bleak, biting Christmas Eve and old miser Scrooge is not full of the Christmas spirit.  But on returning home he suddenly finds himself visited by four ghostly apparitions come to teach him a lesson.


As Christmas day dawns are these apparitions and their dire warnings enough to make Scrooge see the error of his ways?
