Dickens shows us the contrast of the extreme wealth and extreme poor when the ghost of Christmas present flies Scrooge over London, creating a panoramic over view of all the lives of different people being lived, some celebrating the occasion with all life can offer and others with nothing. The ghost of Christmas present also shows us Fezziwig, Scrooge’s employer as an apprentice, he is a foil for Scrooge. He showed compassion for others, and did not put himself on a pedestal because of his class. This is shown when he has a Christmas party and invites even the most vulnerable in society.

Just like the decorations in stores, one clear signal of the holiday season is the staging of Charles Dickens’s novel A Christmas Carol. The play poses a particular challenge to designers, who need to make the ghosts that lead to scrooges spiritual awakening seem supernatural. At the renowned Guthrie theater in Minneapolis, several original effects meet the plays’ design challenges. The Ghosts of Christmas Past costume is strung with Christmas lights seem to grow out of the actor’s fingertips while on his head is an illuminated candle hat. Even more striking is the Ghost of Christmas Present’s cornucopia, which shoots flames out of its’ horn.
