Duck of Christmas Past (D85-190)

Duck of Christmas Past

Created by Craig for Team Ducky’s 2009 Christmas Collection.  Encountered at the Shandaken Challenge – Mt. Tremper on Christmas Day, December 25, 2009.

The second spirit to visit Ebeneezer Scrooge in Charles Dickens‘ famous tale, A Christmas Carol, was the Ghost of Christmas Past. It (though often portrayed popularly as a “she”) was described as, “a strange figure — like a child…It wore a tunic of the purest white, and round its waist was bound a lustrous belt, the sheen of which was beautiful. It held a branch of fresh green holly in its hand…from the crown of its head there sprung a bright clear jet of light, by which all this was visible; and which was doubtless the occasion of its using, in its duller moments, a great extinguisher for a cap, which it now held under its arm.”

Ghost of Christmas Past (Amanda Serra of the Pittsburgh CLO production)

The Duck of Christmas Past was reunited with her fellow spirits and together they are haunting the B.Z. Boys.
