This Christmas, Let’s Celebrate a Different Scrooge: Scrooge McDuck

“There is a growing genre of literature that can best be described as apologias for Ebenezer, the aim of which is to show that Ebenezer Scrooge, the main character of Dickens’s classic Christmas tale, was really a great man, unfairly put upon by spectral busybodies and hand-wringing underlings. A peaceful and honest man, Scrooge was really the victim of A Christmas Carol, not the villain.”
