Ghost Of Christmas Past Dec 27th. at 9:13:25 pm EST

carrie (vermont) Age: 30 - Email

so i can show peaple what they have missed and help them to learn from there past

The Ghost Of Christmas Future Dec 27th. at 10:09:01 pm EST

Kieran (Georgia) Age: 27 - Email

I would like to be able to show others what the outcome of all they do is. Many people do not think ahead enough to know if they should preform what they are about to do. Others simply do not care. I feel if we all knew at least on thing about what we do before we do it, alot of mistakes would have never happened.

The Christmas Carol Play Ie. Story........! Dec 28th. at 12:08:30 am EST

Fledoria (Missouri) Age: 24 - Email

I would have to say, The ghost of christmas future, well to so the person what the future will bring them at the end. To show them if they do something they will regret for the rest of their natural born life, to tell them , *you can change this, it is possible of changing the way you are towards people around you*, to tell them to be nice and to remember of what they saw of the future! So, thats why I feel I would be the GHOST OF CHRISTMAS FUTURE, so in other words, watch before you do something that is wrong and regretful!!!!!!!
bless be to all!

Definately Could Have Some Fun With This! Dec 28th. at 4:16:47 am EST

Nightsong (Atlanta, GA) Age: 23 - Email

I believe that I would be the ghost of Christmas Past. I would hope that I wouldn't be limited to one person, as I think that I could be more effective by visiting everyone who needs to learn from past experiences. And that's what I would do. I know quite a few people who haven't learned anything from mistakes they've made, mainly because the lesson was learned too long ago and they don't think it has anything to do with their current problems. Contrary to popular belief, hindsight isn't always 20/20. That way I could help people realize their full potential without having to try and give advice. Just show them what they need to be shown, and let them come to their own conclusions. And I would have the added bonus of being able to go back and relive the best memories with relatives and loved ones who are no longer with us.

My Choice.....The Christmas Past Dec 28th. at 11:33:06 am EST

isis (ontario) Age: 38 - Email

i would like to be the ghost of christmas past becuase.... your past is the begining of all lives.
and i feel that what you do in the beginning reflects on the type of person you will be in the present. learning from your past lives can help you estalbish a positive beginning which will in crease you chances nay 10 fold to be a better person for both your present and your future. learning from our past mistakes makes us the people we are today so mote it be.

The Present Dec 28th. at 12:40:52 pm EST

Fiona (Birmingham, AL) Age: 24 - Email

the only thing that we know for sure is that we have this very moment. The past is gone, the future is never guaranteed.................make the best of each moment as if it was your last.......

What Christmas Ghost Would I Like To Be? Dec 28th. at 2:14:05 pm EST

Kelly Anderson (Nevada) Age: 15 - Email

This question I have thought about quite a bit. And really would like to be the ghost of christmas future.Because I think (Im not sure about this) that this ghost has a diffrent style. what i mean by that is that I think he,she can wear what they choose

Thankyou for your time,Kelly

All For One Dec 28th. at 3:15:11 pm EST

jade (canada) Age: 16 - Email

I would choose to be the ghost of christmas present. I believe that all 3 ghosts are the same, but different realities of eachother. In other words, i view them as a whole. Being the ghost of christmas present, you would be able to observe the past, and look ahead to the future.

Come In! Come In And Know Me Better, Man! Dec 28th. at 4:15:53 pm EST

Coyote Laughing (Western Massachusetts) Age: 38 - Email

Ah, that's easy! I would be the Ghost of Christmas Present. For one thing, I used to look like him. My hair is shorter now, and I have only a ghotee though. My disposition is also much like his. And who would I haunt? Probably my father in law :-) Then again, he's probably still trying to figure out why a pagan is so happy during a christian holiday.

Christmas Past Dec 28th. at 4:20:52 pm EST

Stefani Coleman (WA) Age: 13 - Email

I would probably choose to be Christmas Past because I could help people learn it. To help not create a World War III would probably one of the best things I could do, and to have no one or nothing helping past mistakes not be committed again would, in my point of view, be tragic.
