 The Ghosts of Christmas past




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



 


The Ghost of Christmas Past was the first of the three spirits that haunted the miser, Ebenezer Scrooge.



According to Dickens' novel, the Ghost of Christmas Past appears to Scrooge as a white-robed, androgynous (having both masculine and feminine characteristics) figure of indeterminate age. It had on its head a blazing light, reminiscent of a candle flame, and carried a metal cap, made in the shape of a candle extinguisher. While the ghost is often portrayed as a woman in most dramatic adaptations, Dickens describes the Ghost of Christmas Past only as “it”, and gives a curious description of it "being now a thing with one arm, now with one leg, now with twenty legs, now a pair of legs without a head, now a head without a body: of which dissolving parts, no outline would be visible in the dense gloom wherein they melted away."
