Christmas Carol
 by Charles Dickens
Retold by Kieran McGovern 
5.2 Merry Christmas!
The Third and final ghost leaves 
HE SpiritIt shrunk, collapsed, anddisappeared down into a bedpost. The bedpost was his own. The bed was hisown. The room was his own.From the street he could hear church bells.Running to the window, he opened it, andput out his head. No fog, no mist, no night. It was clear and bright. A golden day."What's to-day?" cried Scrooge, calling downto a boy in his best clothes.
"EH?""What's to-day, my fine fellow?""To-day! Why, CHRISTMAS DAY.""It's Christmas day! I haven't missed it.Hallo, my fine fellow!""Hallo!""Do you know the Poulterer's, in the nextstreet but one, at the corner?""I should hope I did."
The biggest turkey
"An intelligent boy! Do you know whetherthey've sold the prize Turkey that was hangingup there? The big one?""What, the one as big as me?""What a delightful boy! It's a pleasure to talkto him. Yes, my boy!""It's hanging there now.""Is it? Go and buy it.""Don’t joke with me sir!" exclaimed the boy."No, no, I amin earnest. Go and buy it, andtell 'em to bring it here, that I may tell them where to take it. Come back with the man inless than five minutes, and I'll give you half acrown!" The boy was off like a shot."I'll send it to Bob Cratchit's! He won’t know who it is from. It's twice the size of Tiny Tim. "He wrote the address and went down stairsto open the street door for the poulterer's man.
What a Turkey! He was enormous, thatbird.Scrooge dressed himself "all in his best,"and at last got out into the streets. The people were by this timepouring forth, as he had seenthem with the Ghost of Christmas Present.Walking with his hands behind him,Scrooge regarded every one with a delightedsmile. He looked so happy that three or fourfellows said, "Good morning, sir! A merryChristmas to you!"And Scrooge said often afterwards, that they were the most joyful he ever heard.
Fred’s house
In the afternoon, he turned his steps towardshis nephew's house.He passed the door a dozen times, before hehad the courage to go up and knock. But hemade a dash, and did it."Is your master at home, my dear?" saidScrooge to the girl. Nice girl! Very."Yes, sir.""Where is he, my love?""He's in the dining-room, sir, with hismistress.""He knows me," said Scrooge, with his handalready on the dining-room lock. "I'll go in here,my dear.""Fred!"
