The first spirit is the Ghost of Christmas past. His purpose is to remind Scrooge of his childhood..... the boy he once was, the feelings he had as a child.

But the strangest thing about it was, that 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.
