In this essay I am going to distinguish the personality of Scrooge also show you how he was at the beginning of the novella in the 1st Stave to how he changes at the end in the 5th Stave.
The title to the novella 'A Christmas Carol' this suggests that the story will be a joyful Christian message. 'Christmas' is a time for celebration and togetherness. It is the time for forgiveness, kindness and charity. 'Carol' is a chant which a group of people sing Christmas and Christian songs, so this is meant to be a time where people have fun and are united with family and friends.
Ebenezer Scrooge is the major character, the miserly owner of a London counting-house, a nineteenth century term for an accountant's office, in the story, A Christmas Carol written by Charles Dickens.
Charles Dickens born February 7th 1812 – 9th June 1870 is a highly remarkable novelist who had a vision to change wealthy people’s scrutiny on the underprivileged and by fulfilling the dream he writes novels.

Charles Dickens novels were popularized through teaching, technology and social reform. His novels were taught in school as it was important for people to know what happens in life and how you should treat others around you by being respectful and polite to everyone.
Who is Scrooge? Scrooge is a discourteous, shrewd, ghastly man who despises Christmas and when he gets visited by his old partner Marley and three other Spirits, Ghost of Christmas past, Ghosts of Christmas present and Ghost of Christmas yet to come. The four Spirits show Scrooge was, how he is now and how it is going to be. Scrooge gets the chance to redeem himself, to change to become a better man. I think Scrooge makes a change because when he see himself in the future and he is dead he wants to change and wants to stay alive and also he wants people around him to like him, not to walk pass him and nobody (stopping) him in the street to say, with gladsome looks, `My dear Scrooge,...
