Ebenezer Scrooge, arido e spilorcio finanziere londinese, odia il Natale. Lo considera – anzi – tempo perso, un ostacolo al proprio arricchimento. Ma la notte della Vigilia, dopo una giornata passata alla scrivania senza nulla concedere all’atmosfera festosa che lo circonda, riceve la visita di tre spiriti: del Natale passato, presente e futuro. Nel corso di un fantastico viaggio che farà rivivere a Scrooge tutte le tappe della propria vita e intravedere un ben misero avvenire, gli spiriti riusciranno ad aprire i suoi occhi a sentimenti di generosità e amore. Il Canto di Natale è uno dei capolavori di Charles Dickens e una delle più famose e commoventi storie sul Natale.

Bah! Humbug! Ebenezer Scrooge is a bitter old man, working day after day in his office, mistreating everyone around him, caring only about making riches and little else. Christmas Eve is no exception, as he dismisses it as utter humbug. But that might change when a fatidic night, he is visited by
