The Ghost of Christmas Present appears to Scrooge as "a jolly giant" with dark brown curls. He has a fur-lined robe and, upon his head, are icicles that glitter in the light. He carries with him a large candle that looks like a cornucopia. There is feast around him. 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.
