Which Christmas Ghost Would You Like To Be?
You know the story. In A Christmas Carol, three ghosts visit Scrooge: The Ghost of Christmas Past, The Ghost of Christmas Present and the Ghost of Christmas Future. Which Ghost would you like to be?
And who would you like to haunt? Boo!

Ok, so considering being all three Christmas spirits is perhaps a little greedy, but as a Goddess-friend, I'm hanging with the three-fold aspect. :) Here's why...
Spirit of the Past: To see the good and the not-so-good that has shaped the world, and myself, with the knowledge of how it has 'turned out' already. I love history too, so it would be fun to 'be there' at the signing of the Magna Carta or the storming of the Bastille!
Spirit of the Present: To see if we've learned any of the lessons that we've been sent, or if they're still works in progress. To see the changes in myself from the person of the past. It would also be a chance to observe myself as I am - how others see me.
Spirit of the Future: To see if those same 'works in progress' have progressed! To see if there's any new lessons sent, so I can perhaps do some 'advance study' to help the lesson along. (Knowledge is a wonderous thing - learn all you can - you may one day find that knowing the phone number of a good Funeral Director is a blessing.) And, naturally, to see how my decisions and choices have shaped the rest of my life. I doubt I'd change them, as they are part of the here and now, or the past, but it would be interesting to see their long-term ripples. Oh, and to scare my possibly/maybe great-great-grandchildren with a visit from their "Mad Granny Annwyn" :D
Happy Celebrations (be it Christmas, Solstice, or whichever!) to you all, may 2003 bring blessings to you and yours!

I like the Past and the Present... Being the Ghost of the Past would be cool because you can show a person why they are who they are... and being the Ghost of the Present shows them where they stand and can possibly change... Besides the Ghost of the Present is female and I think I would fit that one best!

I'd like to show others where their path is leading, in time for them to make changes if changes need to be made. I'd like to do the same for myself!

To be able to show people what the future holds for them if they keep cruising down their past of destruuction is soo very powerful. I'm not sure how I would handle it if it was not an eye opening and the person continued to be a "Scrooge"

The ghost of Christmas Present struck me as the most jolly. It is good to be jolly. While pointing ominously and wearing concealing dark robes might be fun for a while (I was the ghost of Christmas Future when I went caroling with my family, in fact! And a remarkable hit with the kiddies, too...), in the end I just want to enjoy the cookies and point out people having times of hope and joy no matter what the circumstance.

I would most certainly be the Ghost of Christmas present, so I can watch my son growing-up while I haunt him, most of the time I'd just watch and let him make his own mistakes as the lesons we learn in life influence the paths we take, but I'd be mischievious and play tricks to keep him on his toes. And at least I'd know even though I cant be there for him in the physical world I would always be by his side in the spiritual domain. Anji (vixen)

I'd choose to be the ghost of Christmas present---he's so happy, and he looks like he has a lot of fun. I wouldn't like to live in the past with events that've already happened, or to live in the land of what may be and things yet to come. So I would be the ghost of Christmas present and get about being happy and joyful and grateful for eveything I've got and everything that's good in the world. I'd sing too; that's always great (like the ghost of x-mas present in the the movie "the muppet christmas carol" ---go muppets!^-^). Merry Christmas---or Yule, I should say ;).

If given the chance, the Ghost of Past. Who among you wouldn't give your eye teeth just to go back and see someone, just one more time? Not only that, but an incredible chance to see why things went wrong, or right, as the case may be.
Tough call as to my chosen Hauntee. So many thousands of boneheads in the past. Would be kinda cool to be the Karma returning to someone who has been dreading it!
Brightest Holiday Blessings, whatever your Holiday might be.

if i could be any of the three ghosts i think i would like to be the future because you would be able to see what was going to happen, then you could think of a way to stop it ( if bad ) before it happened

I'm not sure as to which I'd want to be. I have my opinions which apply to all three.
Ghost of the Past: To show people why they have become the person they are at the present.
Ghost of the Present: To show people what they have made of their life and how it affects others at the moment.
Ghost of the Future: To show where people's paths are going, so they may be able to change their ways to make their future brighter.

the whole thought of christmas, is upsetting to me. a born and raised catholic. i have known since i was a small child, that there is so much more than they tell you! i think that if they would realize the truth, then they would be ablr to except the fact that there is more to the truth then what they want you to belive.
