But, despite it earning Dickens the nickname of the man who invented Christmas, it is a ghost story, about the miserly Scrooge being visited on Christmas Eve by three spirits who remind him of his past, enlighten him on his present, and warn him of his future, causing him to change his life and embrace the spirit of generosity. This, says Kubicki, shows the elusive nature of his ghostly writings.
