Ebenezer Scrooge refuses to accept that Christmas is a time for peace and goodwill to all men. While those less fortunate than him are charitable, Scrooge remains set in his curmudgeonly ways.

Is the sight of others' hardships, coupled with a dark vision of what the future may hold, enough to make Scrooge see the folly of his ways?
