A Christmas Carol

Last week we finally went to see the play “A Christmas Carol” written by Charles Dickens. The form teachers Mrs Greiner, Mrs Roßmeier, Mrs Treppschuh and our English teacher Mrs Brand came with us to Erfurt. Our first stop was the Christmas Market in Erfurt where we could buy some nice Christmas presents for family and friends or where we could enjoy plenty of awesome and delicious sweets. After that we went to the Opera House of Erfurt to see “A Christmas Carol”.

Mr Scrooge, a mean old man, hates Christmas. He loves money and opulence more than anything else. His clerk, Bob Cratchit, even works on Christmas Eve in a freezing cold office.

Later that evening he goes into his dark flat when a ghost appears .It is Scrooge’s old friend Mr Marley who has been dead for 7 years now. He tells him, completely wrapped in iron chains, that he will be rotting in hell if he does not change his way of life. Marley says that Scrooge will be visited by three other spirits, showing him how to become a better person.

The first spirit, the spirit of Christmas Past, shows Scrooge how he celebrated Christmas once, his complicated childhood, his dead sister and his one true love. The second spirit is the spirit of Christmas Present. Scrooge sees Bob Cratchit and his family having an awesome, happy and joyful evening although he learns that their youngest son Tiny Tim is really sick. Then he is taken to his nephew`s Christmas party. The third spirit of Christmas Yet to Come leads Scrooge through a sequence of mysterious scenes. He sees his body lying on his bed and people talking about his death, totally happy about that fact.

But fortunately Scrooge wakes up in his cold flat, having in mind that he should change. Mr Cratchit and his family receive a giant Christmas turkey and he provides gifts for the poor.

The story really shows how stressed, lonely and strict we walk through Christmas time. However, we should remember that we are not alone, always keeping in mind to care for others. So let us enjoy this special atmosphere and the social gathering of Christmas.

To sum up: it was a wonderful experience together.
