After the Ghost of Christmas Past has ended his journey with Scrooge a new spirit arrives in order to guide him through another. When Scrooge first witnesses the Ghost of Christmas Present he is sat upon a large throne formed from a Christmas feast. The Ghost of Christmas Present is presented as a Jolly Giant with clear and kind eyes (Dickens, 73-74). He is “Clothed in one simple green robe, or mantle, bordered with white fur. This garment hung so loosely on the figure, that its capacious breast was bare; Its dark brown curls were long and free; free as its genial face, its sparkling eye, its open hand, its cheery voice, its unconstrained demeanor, and its joyful air.” (Dickens, 74). The Ghost of Christmas Present strongly represents true Christmas spirit and goodwill. He takes Scrooge on a journey in order to show him what is happening in the lives of others that he has not been able to see. He takes Scrooge to visit his business partner, Bob Cratchit, and his family. Scrooge expects to see a family hopeless in their poverty, but what he comes across isn’t so. He sees the hardships of The Cratchits and the troubles that one of their sons, Tiny Tim, is going through, but he doesn’t see the hopelessness that he expects. He sees an abundance of faith, hope, and Christmas spirit. The Ghost of Christmas Present causes Scrooge to feel sorrow, empathy, and truly feel for others whom previously had meant nothing to him as one can see after he asks the spirit about what is to become of Tiny Tim.
The last spirit to visit Scrooge is the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come. He comes to Scrooge in a truly unforgettable manner, described as a phantom shrouded in gloom
