He closed his money lists, opened a web browser and furiously began typing away.
It was almost sunrise when his battery finally ran out and he managed to fall asleep, with those frightful images still hovering in his head.
The next day a new Scrooge had awoken.
@EbScrooge: New day! #Merry_Christmas everyone! #Joy, #Happiness, #Xmas
Even the tweeting ghosts were surprised by this extraordinary change.
Dressed in a Santa hat and with a bag full of gifts he rushed over to Bob’s house.
Bob was shocked to see him. He didn’t know whether to be happy or scared! Was he expecting him to work today? And why on earth was he wearing a Santa hat?
@BCratchit: #Scrooge here. Why? #confused
“Merry Christmas!” exclaimed Scrooge as he walked in ringing a jingle bell in his hand. The children excitedly ran up to him, as he opened the bag and let them explore the toys and gifts he had brought them.
