A Christmas carol

McKell Bezzant A3/B3

"If you should happen, by any unlikely chance, to know a man more blest in a laugh than Scrooge's nephew, all I can say is, I should like to know him too" (pg. 60). Fred, Scrooge's nephew, was always happy. This picture is colorful. When someone is happy they are "full of colors", and lots of people can see those colors shine.
"I wear the chains I forged in life" (pg. 22). Marley is the first ghost Scrooge ever sees. He has all of these chains and boxes hanging form him. In the after life because of what he did while he was living. This picture demonstrates that, because the mans feet are tied to his shoes keeping this life timed to him.
"The school is not quite deserted... a solitary child, neglected by his friends, is left there still" (pg. 31). The picture is like Scrooge alone with those around him paying no real attention to him.
When Marley was visiting Scrooge in his ghostly form he said, "I suffer most. Why did I walk through crowds of fellow-beings with my eyes turned down, and never raise them to that blessed star which led the wise men to a poor abode! Were there no poor homes to which its light would have conducted me!" (pg. 24). This is not the star that the wise men followed, but it is a star and can definitely lead someone somewhere.
On Christmas Day Scrooge woke up and his heart had changed. A boy was walking passed and Scrooge asked him to go and buy a turkey, "Come back with the man, and I'll give you a shilling. Come back with him in less than five minutes and I'll give you half-a-crown!" (pg.87). Scrooge's life was changed for the better. He was willing to give to others.
Tiny Tim was not fully able to do everything that everyone else was. "Oh cold, cold, cold, rigid, dreadful death... and see his good deeds springing from the wound, to sow the world with life immortal" (pg. 77). This picture shows how something small combined with more makes a anywhere lighter.
This picture is a remembrance of when the last ghost came and showed Scrooge Tiny Tim dying and then shows a dead body. Scrooge says, "hear me! I am not the man I was. I will not be the man I must have been but for this intercourse. Why show me this, if I am past all hope!" (pg. 84). Scrooge believed their was no hope but in the end he was able too.
"Always a delicate creature whom a breath might have withered... but she had a large hear..." (pg. 35). Little Fan, Scrooges sister, was one of the nicest people anyone knew. Everyone loved her for who she was and she stayed the same as she grew up. this picture has a heart demonstrating how big her heart always was.
This picture ties back into when Tiny Tim and his father were at the church and once they arrived home his father said to his mother, "He told me, coming home, that he hoped the people saw him in the church, because he was cripple, and it might be pleasant to them to remember upon Christmas Day, who made lame beggars walk, and blind men see" (pg.54). Tiny Tim even when he was in pain wanted others to think about the bigger meaning of this time of year.
"He was so fluttered and so glowing with his good intentions, that his broken voice would scarcely answer to his call" (pg. 85). The sun peaking through the mountains is like Scrooge and his change of heart. Light was slowly starting to shine into his heart.
