the Ghost of Christmas Present appears to Scrooge as "a jolly giant" with dark brown curls. He wears a fur-lined green robe and on his head a holly wreath set with shining icicles. He carries a large torch. The Ghost of Christmas Present is referring to the approximately 1800 Christmases that have come and gone since the birth of Christ, culminating up to the point where the story is told. 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.
