 The Ghost of Christmas Yet To Come

 

We have been talking about how ghosts have been a part of our culture for a long time even though it may have never occurred to you. Think back to the cartoons that you used to watch and you will see that there were a lot of ghosts portrayed such as Casper where no one seemed to care or make a big deal about it.



In this same way, no one thinks of the devil or being anti-Bible by having ghosts as being the theme of a popular Christmas story that is repeated year after year and one that is recommended and passed down to one’s own children.



There is a saying, “When you change the way you look at something, the things that you look at change”.

 

Enjoy how Dickens described the ghosts

 

Scrooge finds the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come the most fearsome of the Spirits; he appears to Scrooge as a figure entirely muffled in a black hooded cloak, except for a single spectral hand with which he points. Although the character never speaks in the story, Scrooge understands him, usually through assumptions from his previous experiences and rhetorical questions. The Ghost's muteness and undefined features (being always covered by his cloak) may also have been intended to represent the uncertainty of the Future. He is notable that even in satires and parodies of the tale; this spirit nonetheless retains his original look.



The Phantom slowly, gravely, silently approached. When it came near him, Scrooge bent down upon his knee; for in the very air through which this Spirit moved it seemed to scatter gloom and mystery. It was shrouded in a deep black garment, which concealed its head, its face, its form, and left nothing of it visible save one outstretched hand. ... It thrilled him [Scrooge] with a vague uncertain horror, to know that behind the dusky shroud there were ghostly eyes intently fixed upon him, while he, though he stretched his own to the utmost, could see nothing but a spectral hand and one great heap of black.



 Scrooge is then taken to a haunted churchyard, where he is shown his own grave, and realizes that the dead man of whom the others spoke ill was himself.
