The ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and yet to come now do all of their work by email, it has been revealed. Speaking to us, for the first time since 2008, the three ghosts have told us that due to the amount of greed, and lack of basic humanity, one email sent to 1000's of people now does more good than one evening spent trying to change the basic behaviour of one miser.
'We know that it is just not the same' said the Ghost of Christmas yet to come, in his surprisingly high voice 'but it works a lot more than one visit. We all know how much attention people pay to their emails, twitter feeds and Facebook, so we thought we would go with the flow. I put in so many Friend requests that just get rejected though. I maybe all about the doom and gloom, but that doesn't mean I don't hurt sometimes'.
The Ghost of Christmas Past said: 'Things ain't what they used to be you know'.
