If you HAD to choose, Unlike dear old Ebenezer, what ghost would you LIKE to be visited by this Xmas period?

I got a couple comments in Qual that I should add an option for people who don't celebrate Christmas , but I don't really see this story as a Christianity or Religious based tale, sure it centers around Christmas, a Christian holiday but more then that, I see it as a simple Victorian morality tale that can be appreciated by all. So if you are not Christian, no matter! You are probably familiar with this old story, just like I enjoy other culture's stories, tales- partake & share opinions in theirs very happily. In the end, I have added for those who suggested it, an option for those who do not celebrate Christmas... but if you don't celebrate Chistmas but still enjoy and appreciate this fine old tale then answer away.... Happy Christmas!... ahem... or not wink

14Ghost of Christmas yet to Come
12Ghost of Christmas present
10Ghost of Christmas past
2While I don't celebrate Christmas, I can still appreciate the story and I would want ..
1I do not wish to partake in this tripe ( Bah Humbug )
1I don't want any of them to visit me, so I abstain. ( Bah Humbug again )
1I don't celebrate Christmas and wish to refrain
0I've no idea what your talking about .. what ghosts? Who is Ebenezer?

I would love to be visited by the ghost of Christmas present boo boo

Christmas yet to come would be the most interesting in my opinion, we know what it's like then, and now, what about the future?

Present. I really must read the book: I'm basing this off The Muppet's Christmas Carol wry smile

Present...I am full on in the moment....

a) I don't celebrate Christmas.
b) I am not familiar with the Chrismat Carol. I've seen it as a child and HATED it and never wanted to watch it afterwards. I don't know why it's so popular. It's a depressing story.

I'd have to say Ghost of Christmas Future.

The future, of course. I know the present and the past. Knowledge is power.

Present. I know the past, been there done that..the future is far too changeable, so if I could see the present and all the stuff going on behind my back that would be good enough.
Although, which ghost was the coolest flyer?

i don't celebrate the long haired daddy in the sky Jesus myth that loves everyone YET sends everyone to hell for things that he "made" us to do, but yeah i would like to celebrate

Christmas past. I had some good ones when I was younger.

Don't bother - the Muppets version is far better!

Ghost of Christmas yet to Come. Blow my mind with what the future holds for the ones I love.

It's kinda depressing, sure, but Ebenezer Scrooge was a depressing old bastard. The point of the story is that if you live your life like a miserable bastard, your life will be depressing--basically that you get out of life what you put into it. The fact that the story is set in London in the 1850s or so does nothing to make it cheerful, so I guess you're right, it is depressing.

Present. I am very happy with the way things are. Hell no on the ghost of Christmas past. That would be horrid and I am afraid of the unknown, so no to the future too. What if I'm in a coma or something.

I'd choose the ghost of the future so that we could chat about what's to come.

Also the whole ghost business is depressing, too. Especially that one ghost that is wrapped in chains.

Ghost of Christmas present, just to see what I'm missing. The future should not be seen, and the past is too painful to recount.
posted 23-Dec-2006 3:47am  
Yet to Come...I still remember my past and I don't want to spoil this Christmas...
I'd rather see if I'm going to die in a horrible fake Christmas tree accident or not..

That's for traction. Remember, it's Christmas and the roads are slippery!!!

christmas present............ i don't necessarily celebrate christmas but i see nothing wrong with this question. nothing needed to be added, those who don't want to participate shouldn't or participate because you have seen the movie or read it and want to.

Kinda. Ectoplasmic vehicular devices.

What a toss up! If I chose Christmas past I'd hopefully get to see my dear mother again, Slaving away in the kitchen no doubt! Christmas yet to come would be a more practical choice though.

I imagine the 'yet to come' might be least painful.

The past is past and futures should be unknown so I vote for the present.

I had a bit more money to spend on gifts this year so I'm really anxious to see how much my friends like what I bought them!

Ghost of Christmas past.

Well I don't really celebrate christmas... I did put upthe inflatable Grinch and put the "Bah Humbug" door mat out (and no I am not kidding I really have them)... I have never had what might be called a "Merry" christmas or even a moderately happy one... So, the Past and Present Ghosts are out... And, as for my death, well when I go I want to be cremated and ashes dumped out in the desert so there is nothing to show where my final resting place is, so the Ghost of the "Yet to Come" is pretty much a moot point also... So, I want to be visited by the Ghost of Marilyn Monroe... Woof.. Now there would be a ghost...
