              1. People he was once not that kind to but he is now nice to them: They are presented as shocked by Scrooge's tranformation but so happy of the fact that he has chhanged.

                2. Dickens' intentions of the plot/themes
                  1. Dickens intended to show us that people can change despite what they have done in the past.
                    1. He wanted to highlight Scrooge's transformation and the positivity surrounding it. As well as this, he wanted to further highlight the theme of rich being able to help the poor through Scrooge's changed ways. We see this through Tiny Tim living thanks to Scrooge.
