Past Dec 22nd. at 10:16:42 pm UTC

freyjona (Crestwood, usa) Age: 13 - Email


itd be awesome to be able to show people the wrongs they or others have made, it makes a great impact when people actually think how the past made an impact on the present, and it makes them think how the things happening in the present affect the future, good or bad


The Future Dec 22nd. at 10:42:30 pm UTC

Ken Krochmal (Salem, Ma) Age: 49 - Email


It would be Future, to show and help people to change there ways and make a
difference in this hard world we live in.


Christmas Future.. Dec 22nd. at 11:06:24 pm UTC

Katrina Cheney--French (Australia) Age: 38 - Email


So Some could "see" how they might fare!!, Depending on their " Actions" towards others of their Past & their Present. So as to Scare them silly into seeing what may befall them if they dont mend their ways.

Who Would I like To Haunt? All the Selfish thoughtless nasty beings of this world
( Begining with those close to home )

A Happy Yule to all
Blessed Be.


All Three! Dec 23rd. at 12:25:55 am UTC

Moon (New York) Age: 41 - Email


Past, so I could show people where the modern trads come from, present so I could help them see what fools they act like most of the time and future so I could get them to mend their ways and make a positive impact on the world and the earth. The first person I would haunt would be Prez. Bush! I'd whip his butt right into shape and put a stop to all the insane things he is doing to this country! Then, I would head home to my family and friends and clean up their acts. Merry Yule to all! Fun question!


Present Dec 23rd. at 12:43:19 am UTC

Casey (North Carolina) Age: 15 - Email


I think that people looking at how they are in the present-time would actually be just as helpful to them as seeing their past or future. Because if they can look at who they are in the present from a different perspective, then they can see their actions in a new light. Like, if someone did something like Scrooge did, and they looked onto what they were doing, they could be like "I can't beleive i was doing that" or "i really said that?" Sometimes looking at something from a different perspective can help a lot.

Love and Light

Which X-mas Ghost Dec 23rd. at 1:10:55 am UTC

Mike Davis (Chicago, IL) Age: 29 - Email


I see myself as either the Ghost of X-mas Past, or the Ghost of X-mas Future.


Present Dec 23rd. at 1:20:42 am UTC

Casey (United States) Age: 16 - Email


I would like to be the ghost of Christmas present because nothing
is more important at this time then today.


Ghost Of Christmas Future Dec 23rd. at 1:28:21 am UTC

Angela (TN, US) Age: 16 - Email


I would be the ghost of the future so I can show my family and friends
what mistakes they will make and how to avoid them if possible.

I would hunt my mother, father, sisters, friends, and oter family.


Good Question Dec 23rd. at 1:30:56 am UTC

kaT (Toronto) Age: 33 - Email


If I had to choose to be one of the three ghosts well, for Scrooge I would be the ghost of the future and show that cheapo what kindness can do.
If i had to choose just to be one of the three period I would be the ghost of past to show everyone when Mother Earth was like when undamaged ; hopefully people would be in awe and change their ways.

Past Dec 23rd. at 1:33:31 am UTC

Brittany (TN) Age: 14 - Email


So I could show people their past from another perpective.

I would hant my sistes and father.


Ghosties Dec 23rd. at 2:21:26 am UTC

Peter (Victoria, B.C.) Age: 18 - Email


I would be the ghost of Christmas Present, because I believe that nothing is as important as the here and now. The present is shaped by 'presents' past, and shapes 'presents' future, but it all comes down to living the moment. If I were the Ghost of Christmas past, however, I would get to see the 60's... :)

On a side-note, I recently discovered that the image of the Holly King in my imagination was formed a great deal from the Ghost of Christmas Present in the Christmas Carol movie (the one with Alistair Sim).


I'd Like To Be The Ghost Of Christmas Past..... Dec 23rd. at 6:57:36 am UTC

Michael (Oceanus) (Brooklyn, New York) Age: 33 - Email


I'd like to be the Ghost of Christmas Past because we all need someone or something to help remind us of all the good and bad things we've lived through that make us who we are. We need reminding where we come from and where we've been, and most of all.... we can learn from our past mistakes so we do not repeat them.
