The Ghost of Christmas Present is the second of three spirits who haunt Ebenezer Scrooge in Charles Dickens' novel A Christmas Carol.

A Christmas Carol (2009)

The Ghost of Christmas Present shows Scrooge affairs as they are in the present day and the joy of Christmas in general while "Hark the Herald Angels Sing" is playing in the background.

The first thing the ghost shows Scrooge is Bob Cratchit eating Christmas dinner with his impoverished family with what little money Scrooge pays him for a roast goose.

Then, the ghost shows Fred and his friends playing party games after their Christmas dinner, which Scrooge earlier refused an invitation to.

Finally, the ghost warns Scrooge about Ignorance and Want. Specifically, in what peril poor people would be if Scrooge did not change his ways. After his meeting with Scrooge is over, the Ghost of Christmas Present erodes into a skeleton, which soon turns into a pile of ash. The nearby clock tower strikes 12 and Scrooge meets the next ghost.
