How does mrs cratchit feel toward Scrooge?
For most of the story, she resents and despises him for a hard master to her husband and his lack of compassion for others. She's willing for her husband to defend him and, as a good Christian woman, would welcome him into her home. By the end of the book, she's seen the change in Scrooge and she comes to love him.

Even in 1843, a turkey was an emblem of fullness and prosperity -- something only the wealthy could afford. Scrooge gave this to the Cratchits to ensure that they would have a feast they deserved, as a kind and loving family.
Bob wanted to toast Scrooge but misses cratchit didn't then the children did it because they copied bob
Because he is a very kind and humble man. He is grateful to Scrooge even for the miserable few shillings he earns every week.
Because Bob (somehow) sincerely believed that Scrooge was worthy of thanks for this meal. Mrs. Cratchit (obviously) disagreed.
Bob remained loyal to Scrooge. He thought that Scooge althoughfinacially rich was poor in life and this saddened Bob.
At that time work was scarce in Britain. Any jobs had to be helddown no matter what or how the employee was treated because unlessthere was work no-one had money for food, warmth or shelter.
That is correct. Scrooge under-paid Cratchit, treated him badly, knew nothing about his home life, threatened to fire him, and (apparently) barely viewed him as a human being. But he was Cratchit's boss.
He went to ask forgiveness for his behavior to his nephew Fredshome and accepted his invitation to dine with them
Her feelings towards him began to change because she realized just how wrong she was about him. Everything that she had once thought was true about him was actually wrong. His pride was well deserved and all his dealings with Wickham had be just and fair.
He gets this feeling of love/care when he sees Cratchit and his family at the dinner table and when he sees Tiny Tim. He regrets his actions towards Cratchit and he wants to make him feel better. He experiences to love, joy, caring, and kindness by just looking at their happy family.
The Ghost of Chritasm Present takes Scrooge to the Mines of Walesand then to a light house and Freds home. The Ghost of ChristmasYet To Come took him to Scrooges office where someone else was nowworking and then to the Graveyard where Scrooge would see hisTombstone
Scrooge sees a boy passing by his home and gets the child to go and buy the "Prize Goose" that is on display at the localPoulterer's. He then sends the Goose to the Cratchit's by way of the Poulterer,and remains anonymous as a result. Because of the distance he evenpaid for a cab.
the toast that bob makes is " The Founder of the Feast indeed!" and mrs. crachit was mad because she didnt have a nice feast and found out that scrooge was sneaking on them
On the first occasion to she how they lived and to understand bobslife . On the second occasion it was to witness the impact of TinyTims death on the family should he not get the medical help needed.
Loyalty and to a degree sadness as he felt that Scrooge was missingout on so much of life
Scrooge catches Bob Cratchit coming into work late to give Bob Cratchit a raise in his salary.
Fezziwig treated the young Scrooge well. He paid for and held aChristmas party which was to show Scrooge that treating empoyeeswell didn't need to cost much but made the employees feel betterand more enriched.
Because Scrooge gives him bob a raise and now the family was mean to Scrooge no nice,
Bob Cratchit is unassuming and gentle and tries to see the positivein Scrooge where Mrs Cratchit hates Scrooge and seeks to give him apiece of her mid for the ways he treats Bob
They are not alike. Scrooge is a mean individual who cares for noone whilst Bob is a meek and mild loving family man who tries tosee the good in everyone
He tells Bob that he is going to raise his salary. Then he tellshim to buy another coal scuttle and bulk up the fire before he dotsanother "I" or crosses another "t"
Thye are not alike . Scrooge is a cold misery old man who careslittle for anyone whilst Bob is a loving father who tries t see thegood in all and takes time to be part of a loving family despitehis poverty
If he could have Christmas day off to spend with his family andcelebrate the season.
He realises how he has treated poor Bob and how faithfull Bob is tohim despite this treatment
In the original script Ebenezer does not have contact with MrsCratchit only with Tiny Tom and Bob.. The story suggest that hebecomes like another father to Tim. the assumption is to be drawnthat he grows closer to the family and of course to Mrs Cratchit.
Ther are two references to places Bob Cratchit went to . In earlytext he was with Tiny Tim in Church on Christmas Day and in stave 4he was in the grave yard looking to see where Tiny Tim would beburied
He doesnt. Its is Ebenezer Scooge after his change of heart thathelps Bob and his family
Mrs Cratchit dislikes having to toast the misery Scrooge because ofhis treatment of her husband Bob
Initially appallingly - typical of the time and in contact of themessage Dickens was trying to portray about the way lower classpeople were being treated. However, this changes as Scrooge seesthe error of his ways.
Firstly a loving yet very poor family, the loyalty of his clerk Bobwho toasted Scrooges health, then reaction of the whole familyespecially Mrs Cratchit to hearing Scrooges name
Scrooge bought the huge prize turkey and sent it to the Cratchithome on Christmas Day
Mrs Cratchit blames the light and the colours she is sewing butthis is the time when Tiny Tim dies and therefore is a sign of hergrief as Bob is visiting the graveyard to look at the site of Timsfinal resting place
Bob is grateful for the fifteen shillings and six pence pay heearns each week compared to nothing at all and tries to make a badsituation more tolerable. However, Mrs Cratchit sees Scrooges badattitude toward the loyal hard-working bob and is incensed by it
Many strong words. She calls him a miserly old man and tells Boboff for even bringing the name to their Christmas table. Shebusinesslike Scrooge with a vengeance for his treatment of poor Bob
Most how either read the story or watch a production soften whenthey realise what a hard initial upbringing Scrooge suffered. Theysee the mistakes he made and they see the changes coming over himas memories he hides deep inside come to the surface
Led by Bob Cratchit the toast was " To Mr Scrooge, founder of the feast!"
During their Christmas dinner Bob Cratchit offers a toast toScrooge as the founder of the feast. Mrs Cratchit is appalled asare the children that Scrooge who is horrible to Bob would have hishealth toasted but she does go along with it for Bobs sake andbecause its Chrostmas
At that time in London there were so many people moving in to thecity seeking work and a better life that the city was at breakingpoint, food was scares, accommodation as terrible , work wasscarce, the levels of homelessness and deprivation wereunimaginable so to have any job that paid was to be hel…d on to nomatter how poorly you were being treated ( Full Answer )
at that time work in London was very scarce. any work found had tobe taken and held on to else people would starve
Scrooge sees two things. Firstly how he misses the comfort andwarmth of family together at Christmas something he had not had inhis very early years and also he learns about how loyal Bob is ashis emplyee despite how harshly Scrooge treats him. The reaction ofMrs Cratchit brings it home to Scrooge
Mrs Cratchit hates the way Bob is treated by Scrooge. She feelsthat he is underpaid and over worked
Mrs Cratchit despises Scrooge for his miserly ways and theappalling treatment of her beloved Bob
It was Bobs way of showing rspect and loyalty and of course in amanner of speaking thanks for his position
IN stave four Bob describes the planned resting place for their sonTiny Tim. This is undertaken infront of the Ghost of Christams YetTo Come and Scrooge
Its for Scrooge to see what a loving family with very littleresource does at Christmas and to show just how faithful Bob hisemployee is to him. It also gives us the chance to see how Scroogereacts to seeing Tiny tim and here were note a softening inScrooges hardened front. It is clear that in all th…e time heemployed Bob he didn't know about Tim and the future of the poorboy ( Full Answer )
Initially she refuses and challenges Bob on the matter. Bob tellsher "its Christmas" meaning to have the christmas spirit and atleast have peace of heart
Surprisingly its the Cratchit family. Although they have nothingthey understand the true meaning of Christmas
Very much so. Despite her reluctance to toast Mr Scrooge thefounder of the feast she realises its for Bob and does so. Later wesee her sewing and complaining her eyes and sore when in fact sheis shedding a tear for her lost little boy Tiny Tim (as foretold asmight happen by the Ghost of Christmas Pr…esent) ( Full Answer )
So Scrooge will see the life his loyal employee Bob has and how hemanages to live on the meager wage he pays
That even as poor as Bob and his family are they still try toremember the reason for Christmas and celebrate its meaning
