Scrooge sees under the robe of the Ghost of Christmas Present, two children, whose names show that they are symbols: Ignorance and want. They are your standard impoverished Dickensian children; they are ragged in clothes, dirty and starving.
One of the children is a young boy who repressents ignorance. The second child is a young girl who represents want.
These two are hidden underneath the ghost of christmas presents green robe.
