A Christmas Carol

What do you think of the Cratchits as a family? Support your opinion by referring to what they said and did.

For example, what do you learn about them from the way they all helped with the dinner? What did Bob mean by saying that Mr.Scrooge was "the founder of the feast"? Why was the rest of the family not enthusiastic about drinking the toast Bob proposed?

The Cratchits are a kindly family. They are very poor but celebrate the little that they have. Bob Cratchit even makes a toast to his miserly boss in thanks for their meager Christmas dinner. Although the rest of the family is not enthusiastic about the toast, they acquiesce because it means something to their father.
