Christmas My family has always raised me that Christmas is not just about gifts but giving and family too. When I was in fourth grade I usually got off the bus around 3:30 but on this particular day I got home at 3:15. I remember walking to the front door because I didn't have boots on and the snow was piled almost up to my mid thigh so I couldn't walk on the walkway as I usually did to go in the usual side door. As the door opened I scent of gingerbread cookies and pine from the Christmas tree entered my nose, holding me there for just a second to let the scent settle in. "Katie, shut that door," my mom yelled, taking me back into reality and out of my daze. I went to

The word Christmas comes from the old English "Cristes maesse" meaning Christ's
Mass. The Holiday celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ. The actual birthday of
Jesus is not known; therefore, the early Church Fathers in the 4th century fixed
the day around the old Roman Saturnalia festival (17 - 21 December), a
traditional pagan festivity. The first mention of the birthday of Jesus is from
the year 354 AD. Gradually all Christian churches, except Armenians who
celebrate Christmas on January 6 (the date of the baptism of Jesus as well as
the day of the three Magi), accepted the date of December 25th.
In American/English tradition, Christmas Day itself is the day

How does Charles Dickens make his Philanthropic message clear using the character of Scrooge in the novella â€œA Christmas Carolâ€
A philanthropist is a person who gives charity and goodwill to fellowmen in an active effort to promote welfare and to care for the less fortunate. Bill Gates is an example to a philanthropist because he gives huge amounts to charity to cure diseases. Charles Dickens is a philanthropist because in the novella â€œA Christmas Carolâ€ he shows that Mr. Scrooge is a greedy character everyone fears.

A Christmas Carol Essay
At the beginning of the novel, Scrooge is a cold-hearted, tight-fisted and greedy man, who despises christmas and all things which give people happiness. Dickens describes him thus: "The cold within him froze his old features, nipped his pointed nose, made his eyes red, his thin lips blue, and he spoke out shrewdly in his grating voice ... Scrooge has only disgust for the poor, thinking the world would be better off without them, He has a particular distaste for the merriment of Christmas; his single act of kindness is to give his clerk, Bob Cratchit, the day off with pay. Done more as a result of social mores than kindness, Scrooge sees the practice akin to

Theodore Geisel published ‘The Grinch Who Stole Christmas in 1957 (Illinois, 2013). In the 50’s, North America was starting to buy in (literally) to the commercialization of Christmas. The event of reverence and celebration that it had been for over a thousand years was descending into a money-making ploy by the corporations of the world. In fact, the Santa Claus we know today was shaped by the multi-billion dollar corporation, Coca-Cola (Staff, 2012). As we all know, when Dr. Seuss wrote his books, he most often included a theme, or ‘moral of the story’ as a guide for young children to help them learn important values. In his work, “The Grinch Who Stole Christmas”, Dr. Seuss openly

The Metamorphosis of Ebenezer Scrooge in A Christmas Carol
Ebenezer Scrooge learned a great deal about himself during the visitations of the three ghosts in A Christmas Carol. He learned things that not only changed his life, but also the lives of others such as Tiny Tim and his family. At first these changes came gradually, probably because they where not really "fuelled" by fear of what might be, but instead by remorse for things he had already done. Not until the second and third spirits visit Scrooge can a true change due to fear, not only in fear for what might be during his life but also in the end.
In the first stave, Dickens tries to point out that Scrooge is a character that

A 'Christmas Carol' was written in 1843 by Charles Dickens, to portray perhaps his own beliefs- as social critic- about how the world was at the time, set in the dingy London town.In the eyes of his selfish vindictive protagonist, Ebenezer Scrooge, the poor were vermin to be steered clear of and money was his everything, suggesting the attitude of the upper class citizens at the time. The shocking truth of the venomous creature Scrooge would become of in the years to come, haunted him into a better person. Forcing him out of the dark and seeing the light.

The leading character in A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens, has become an icon of what it means to lack a Christmas spirit. Ebenezer Scrooge possesses a title much like “The Grinch”; his name conjures the thought of a man who through stinginess steals away happiness from everyone around him. Scrooge’s foil in the story, Bob Cratchit, characterized as a man of humble means, possesses an unyielding spirit for the Christmas season. Dickens’s religious readers could describe Cratchit as full of Christian charity, while they would call Scrooge a man untouched by biblical principles. However, the distinction between Cratchit and Scrooge’s Christianity cannot be cut so clearly. The biblical

Advent is traditionally a period of penance and preparation of contrition and denial. In this poem, Kavanagh draws an analogy between the season of Advent and the nativity which follows and his own wish to rediscover the innocence and wonder of a child's mind. The theme has much in common with Vaughen's "Retreate", in which the poet seeks to return to prenatal existence.The opening lines represent Kavanagh's confession of guilt, he has committed the sin of gluttony, a metaphor - for original sin.

The appearance of the apple to Eve was one that it would give her great wisdom as to that of the gods. In reality it did give her wisdom, but with that also came the expulsion from the Garden of Eden. The appearance of the apple was good but the outcome was bad so was marriage in the 19th century. In Henrik Ibsen’s play "A Doll's House," where a man treats his wife with inferiority and where to him appearance of things is as water is to life, various symbols are used to express a theme.

From the outset, Morgan makes his central theme obvious to the reader and we are encouraged to share in his curiosity and attentiveness. The first indication of the theme is in the title; “Trio” has connotations that
