A Christmas Carol takes place in London during the early 1840s. The story begins at 3 pm, December 24, in the counting house of Ebenezer Scrooge and Jacob Marley. Marley died seven years ago, but Scrooge has not removed his name from the business sign. It is bitterly cold outside, and in the counting house as well because Scrooge does not want to spend money for heat. His only nephew comes in to wish him a Merry Christmas and to invite him to a Christmas party, but Scrooge refuses the invitation and gets rid of his nephew as quickly as possible.
Scrooge initially disowns Fred, cutting him of without a penny as he mainly blames Fred for the death in childbirth of his much loved sister Fan. Scrooge is also annoyed by Fred's marrying someone who herself has no money. When the Ghost of Christmas Present takes Scrooge to Fan's bedside he sees himself beg for her life. She falls into a coma as Scrooge sits holding her hand. he glares at the baby as it cries and leaves the room. When he'd gone Fan in a faint voice still speaks to Scrooge, begging him to take care of her son. Scrooge never knew this and breaks down seeing the events. He knows he has let his sister down. In stave 5 Scrooge goes to Fred's home to beg forgiveness for his folly; Fred is of course delighted to see his old uncle and welcomes him to his home for Christmas Dinner.
The Christmas song is a carol.
