Starring Jim Carrey.

The Poster of Disney's A Christmas Carol

CG (Cell Group) movie outing to watch this
"Christmas-feel" movie.
ll together 9 of us and our event organiser are
Ai Ping and Erwin,
and our CG leader, Eugene, commented that it is
"Max horsepower team up again"!

And Eugene hopes that the same alacrity
will be shown for Wednesday Night prayer meetings!



We never thought that this movie is so serious about life saving.

Ebenezer Scrooge, a bitter and miserly old moneylender
(the old man shown in the poster).
He holds everything that embodies the joys and spirit of Christmas in contempt,
refusing to visit his cheerful nephew Fred's Christmas dinner party with his family,
and forcing his underpaid employee Bob Cratchit
to beg to take the day off for his own family.

This is the beginning of the story.

That very night, Christmas Eve, 24 Dec.
 Scrooge is visited by the ghost of his former business partner, Jacob Marley,
who had died seven years prior on Christmas Eve and
is now forced to spend his afterlife carrying heavy chains
forged from his own greedy ways.

Marley warns Scrooge that he will suffer an even worse fate
if he doesn't repent, and foretells that he will be
haunted by three spirits that will help guide him.

The first spirit, the Ghost of Christmas Past, shows Scrooge
visions of his own past that take place on or around the Christmas season,
reminding him of how he ended up the greedy man he is now.

The second spirit, the Ghost of Christmas Present,
shows Scrooge the happiness of his fellow men on Christmas day.
Among them are his nephew Fred, who playfully makes jokes
with his family at Scrooge's expense, and Bob Cratchit and his family,
who are just barely able to make do with what little pay Scrooge gives Cratchit.
The Cratchits also tend to a sickly young son, Tiny Tim,
whose commitment to the spirit of Christmas touches Scrooge,
who is dismayed to learn from the spirit that he may not have much longer to live.

The third and final spirit, the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come,
shows Scrooge the final consequences of his greed.
Tiny Tim has died, leaving the Cratchits to mourn him on Christmas.
Scrooge has also died, though there is more comfort than grief in the wake of his funeral.
In addition, Fred finds benefit from inheriting his wealth,
and Scrooge is even robbed by his former maid.

Did Scrooge able to get a SECONG CHANCE from the spirit?
Did he manage to escape from the way to Hell?

You will find out from the movie, friend.

Personally i think this movie make all of us to ponder
and look back to what we have done thus far.
Are we destine to Heaven or Hell?
The answer lies between god and our very own being.

Also I believe in every festives, that will be the time
we ponder to look at how we have build our relationship with our love ones, family, friends
and perhaps also neighbours and collegues. 

Do take some quite moments to think, how can we care for others
how much others remember and care for us.
