Dove Review

Based on Charles Dickens’ Christmas classic about sharing the Christmas spirit. The irritable Ebenezer Scrooge sneers at everyone and everything during the days before Christmas—especially his employees. The town is preparing for a splendid holiday as Scrooge walks home on Christmas Eve. He is alarmed by what awaits! He is approached by three spirits who show him Christmas past, Christmas present, and Christmas future.

Scrooge sees the past lives of happy families, the present situations of those less fortunate than him, and his future self looking back at what an unhappy life he led. He is horrified seeing how miserable his future self is, and experiences a wonderful transformation. Scrooge shares his wealth and newfound cheer the next day, Christmas morning. He reunites with his family and shocks his staff with his generosity and kindness. Sit back and enjoy this classic story of the true meaning of Christmas with your family!

This Christmas classic is awarded the Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages.
