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!

Present Dec 26th. at 3:01:47 am EST

Elefarea (Eugene, OR) Age: 18 - Email

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.

Only Christmas Present Will Do! Dec 26th. at 5:23:16 am EST

anji (northern uk) Age: 25 - Email

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)

Christmas Ghost- Present Dec 26th. at 9:30:52 am EST

Amaya (Canada) Age: 14 - Email

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 ;).

The Past... Dec 26th. at 2:36:48 pm EST

Mothrae (Pennsy USA) Age: 38 - Email

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.


I Would Be Dec 26th. at 6:56:21 pm EST

faith (aus) Age: 28 - Email

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

Three-fold Dec 27th. at 3:08:12 am EST

Dracenae DeNacht (Eugene OR) Age: 15 - Email

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.

Blessed Be.

"witch" X-mas Ghost. Dec 27th. at 6:29:48 am EST

julie (crivitz, wi) Age: 30 - Email

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.

Hedging My Bets Dec 27th. at 9:14:47 am EST

Holly Perry (Seminole, FL) Age: 43 - Email

The clock is ticking and I'm worried about not getting old, so my choice is Christmas Future. As soon as this transformation manifests I'm headed to Dubbwa's sleeping quarters to show him the effects of another oil war. Then I'm going to let him swim home from an offshore oil rig.

Christmas Spirits... Dec 27th. at 10:29:56 am EST

Mer (florida) Age: 19 - Email

I always, always loved the ghost of Christmas Present...the holly crowned,jolly spirit with the green cloak and the food. :) I don't know who I would haunt. I'm sure if i were that spirit...I'd have a huge list of people I would have to visit. I'd certainly be busy with everything thats going on in the world today...I bet there are plenty of people who would need me to point stuff out to them.

I Would Like To Be The Ghost Of Present Dec 27th. at 11:10:55 am EST

Deb (Visalia, California) Age: 33 - Email

The Holy king legends (the king of winter) are almost identical to Santa Claus, in both his appearance and his gift giving. I am a giver as well and very loving. So I would have to say that I would have to be the ghost of christmas present.

Christmas Future Dec 27th. at 3:13:08 pm EST

Amazonia (New York) Age: 27 - Email

I hate to be the odd one, but I would probably be the Ghost of Christmas Future. I would like to be the one to scare someone into straightening up. Then I would probably be laughing under my hood. Well I know that it's bad, but hey I did answer.

It's a festive time, and some people NEED to have a festive spirit, whether it's X-mas, Yule, Kwanza, etc.

Brings Up Memories Of The Past... Dec 27th. at 4:25:46 pm EST

Jayette (In an uncaring world...) Age: 15 - Email

I, myself, would be the Ghost of Christmas Past. I would haunt myself, if at all that be possible. Why you ask? A year ago my best friend died. I would do anything to see him again. If I were the Ghost of Christmas Past wouldn't it only be reasonable for me to be able to take myself back into the past, to relive those much missed memories. Yes indeed. The Ghost of Christmas Past just seems to suit my needs.
