A Christmas Carol is a STUPID STORY
There, I said it. It’s a greedy old bastard who has to be scared by ghosts to pay Bob Cratchit a living wage. Scrooge is more scared that no one will mourn his death than anything else, in my opinion, about why he changes his ways. Arrogance and hubris. CEOs being whinypants that no one acknowledges some public display of philanthropy as they underpay and under-appreciate their employees.
Like it’s great I guess how many popular Christmas traditions got their popularity from Dickens’ novel, but the story is soooooo boring.
