Scrooge wakes up the next morning ecstatic to find that he is still alive and that it is Christmas Day. He hails a young lad in the street and asks him to buy the prize turkey hanging in the window of the poulterist, whom he then pays to deliver the turkey anonymously to the Cratchits. He dresses and hurries over to Fred's house for dinner, along the way wishing a merry Christmas to everyone he meets and stopping to make a generous donation to the poor. Fred and his wife are happy to receive him, and Scrooge insists that next Christmas' dinner will be at his house. The next morning when Cratchit comes into the office 16 minutes late, Scrooge pretends to be annoyed and calls him on his tardiness, then says that he's going to raise his salary and help out his family. He sends Cratchit out to buy another scuttle of coal for the office fire. From thereon, Cratchit narrates, saying, 'And Scrooge was better than his word. He did all that he said he would and more. And to our Tiny Tim, who got well, Scrooge was like a second father. He became as good a friend, as good a master, and as good a man as the good old city ever knew. And it was always said of him that he knew how to keep Christmas well. And so, as Tiny Tim observed... The final scene shows Scrooge walking up the street, carrying Tiny Tim on his shoulder, who completes his father's narration by saying, 'God bless us every one.'
