† A Magical Christmas Movie: A Christmas Carol †

Disney's "A Christmas Carol" is an animated retelling of Charles Dickens' classic novel. This is a great film to watch during Christmas season. Its a simple but very meaningful film. What impresses me the most is its Christmas soundtracks and thank God I've owned all the songs now.

The story goes like this: Ebenezer Scrooge, a bitter old man who is selfish and keeping himself nasty to everyone around him for years.

During one of the Christmas eve, he is visited by the ghost of his former business partner Jacob Marley, who is now forced to spend his afterlife carrying heavy chains forged from his own greedy ways.

Marley warns Scrooge that he will suffer an even worse fate if he doesn't repent, and foretells that he will be haunted by three spirits that will help guide him.

The first spirit who visits him is the Ghost of Christmas Past, a small ghost made of fire, shows Scrooge visions of his own past that take place on or around the Christmas season, reminding him of how he ended up the greedy man he is now.

The second ghost is the Ghost of Christmas Present who laughs most of time, shows Scrooge the happiness of his fellow men on Christmas day.

The third and final spirit, the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come, shows Scrooge the final consequences of his greed.

Because of the three Christmas ghosts, Scrooge begins to realize how most of his life has been wasted because of wealth. Ever since that day, Scrooge has changed to become a nice and loving old man.
