The Ghost of Christmas Present is the second of three personifications of Christmas to haunt Ebenezer Scrooge in an attempt to convince him to repent for his sins. He is often depicted as a "jolly giant" with dark-brown hair, a green robe and a crown of holly. He only exists for one Christmas day, and has had 1,842 brothers before him. The Ghost shows Scrooge scenes of Christmas festivity and deprivation taking place in London, as well as the happiness of Scrooge's nephew's middle-class social circle and Bob Cratchit's impovershed family. Before dying off, the Ghost shows Scrooge two emaciated and inhuman children he keeps inside his robe, named Ignorance and Want.
