The Birth Place Of Scrooge

Edinburgh is, in fact, the birthplace of Scrooge. Whilst on a visit to Edinburgh University, Charles Dickens took a stroll to kill time. Ending up in the Canongate Kirkyard, he stumbled upon the grave of “Ebenezer Scroggie – Mealman). Dickens, in a mild dyslexic state, read the gravestone as Ebenezer Scrooge – Meanman. The author’s imagination led him to stew over how this man had deserved such a title in death, and thus the legend of Ebenezer Scrooge was born.

etting off scot-free, originated when a schoolboy shot a soldier in Edinburgh. It was a public holiday, and everyone had the day off, except for the schoolboys who had to be educated. As a state of protest, some of the schoolboys barricaded their bedrooms and refused to go to school. When the army stepped in to calm things down, a young schoolboy picked up a gun and killed a soldier. Fortunately for the boy, he was a lord’s son and therefore no punishment was given.
