Christmas Carol Themes
1 Greed
1.1 "squeezing, wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching, covetous old sinner!"
1.2 "small fire, but the clerk's fire was so very much smaller"
1.2.1 Selfishness - views Bob as a second class citizen
1.3 "at the ominous word 'liberality', Scrooge frowned"
1.4 "what right have you to be happy, you're poor enough"
1.4.1 Views money as the most important thing in the world - doesn't see how a 'poor' person could be happy (Fred is not poor)
2 Family
2.1 ACC presents family life as the norm that everyone should aspire to - Victorian belief. Cratchits, Belle, Fezziwig, the miner - all of the 'inspirational' characters do what they do for their love of their family.
2.1.1 At the end of the novella, it is not enough to just become charitable and philanthropic - he must also be welcomed into Fred's family and circle He does not just become a Cratchit family friend, he becomes a second father to Tiny Tim "and to Tiny Tim, who did not die, he was a second father"
3 Poverty
4 Reform; compassion and forgiveness
