A Secret Revealed

"They were not a handsome family; they were not well-dressed; their shoes were far from being water-proof; their clothes were scanty; and Peter might have known, and probably did, the inside of a pawnbroker's. But they were happy, grateful, pleased with one another, and contented with the time; and when they faded, looked happier yet in the bright sprinklings of the Spirit's torch at parting, Scrooge had his eye upon them, and especially on Tiny Tim, until the last."

from A Christmas Carol, Scrooge and the Spirit of Christmas Present looking in at the Cratchit's Christmas.

Look at the words Grateful, Pleased with one another, and Contented.

Looks like they knew the Secret to a blessed Christmas.
