The first Ghost was the Ghost of Christmas Past. He was a short, distorted, and stout figure with a light glowing from his head. He took Scrooge to the town he grew up in. First, he showed Scrooge himself as a lonely boy reading. As the years progressed, it was the same scenario. Until Scrooge's apprenticeship for Mr. Fezziwig, who was a kind joyous man.
