Korte inhoudsopgave:
Kerstavond 1843. Scrooges beste vriend en zakenpartner Jacob Marley werd net begraven. Hierdoor komt Scrooge thuis in een melancholische bui. Zeven jaar later is dit slechte humeur eerder regel dan uitzondering geworden. Zijn loyale klerk Bob Cratchit is steeds het mikpunt van Scrooges wreedheid en bitterheid. Op kerstavond zit Scrooge alleen in zijn woonkamer. Samen met het geratel van kettingen verschijnt de geest van zijn overleden vriend Marley. Hij komt Scrooge waarschuwen dat hij zal moeten boeten voor al het kwaad dat hij anderen berokkent.

Opmerkingen:
The word “humbug” is misunderstood by many people, which is a pity since the word provides a key insight into Scrooge's hatred of Christmas. The word “humbug” describes deceitful efforts to fool people by pretending to a fake loftiness or false sincerity. So when Scrooge calls Christmas a humbug, he is claiming that people only pretend to charity and kindness in an scoundrel effort to delude him, each other, and themselves. In Scrooge's eyes, he is the one man honest enough to admit that no one really cares about anyone else, so for him, every wish for a Merry Christmas is one more deceitful effort to fool him and take advantage of him. This is a man who has turned to profit because he honestly believes everyone else will someday betray him or abandon him the moment he trusts them.

When Scrooge sees his classmates in the past he calls out “There's Toby Veck!” This is a reference to the character Toby Veck, the protagonist in the Dickens story 'The Chimes'.

Miscellaneous: When Scrooge is with the ghosts, they walk through walls but over and on the furniture

'Anachronisms: At the end of Scrooge's visit to the Cratchit's during Christmas Present, Tiny Tim starts singing “Silent Night” which is then taken up by others in various scenes. Originally a German-language hymn written in Austria, it was not translated into English until 1863, a full 20 years after Dickens wrote “A Christmas Carol”.
