Scrooge (Before)
“secret, self contained, and solitary as an oyster”
“‘It’s enough for a man to understand his own business,’“
“squeezing, wrenching, grasping”
“‘if they had rather die, they had better do it, decrease the surplus population.’”

Scrooge (After)
“‘I am as merry as a school boy’”
“shaking hands with him”
“patting children on the head”
“my love,’” “‘fine fellow’”

Christmas past
“Purest white”
“one leg, now with twenty legs”
“sprung a bright clear jet of light”
“Soft and gentle”

Christmas Present
“A jolly Giant who bore a glowing torch”
“A cheery voice and joyful air”
“deep green robe, boarded with white fur...holly wreath”

Christmas Yet to Come
“Darkness by which it was surrounded”
“slowly, gravely, silently”
“A solemn Phantom, draped and hooded, coming like mist”

“‘Another idol has displaced me.’”
“wearing a mourning dress”
“‘You are changed’”
“The joy, gratitude and ecstasy”

The supernatural
“‘Rise! And walk with me!’“
“‘Look upon me!’”
“The inexorable finger”
“vanished instantly”

Of Scrooge
(see above)
Of the room
“It was his own room. But it had undergone a surprising transformation.”
“Bright, gleaming berries glistened”
“turkey, geese, game”
Of the Ghosts
“an alteration in the Phantoms hood and dress. It shrunk, collapsed, and dwindled down into a bedpost.”
