The Spirit of Christmas Past, Present and Future (the other two are sick, so he's doing all three) tries to get the grim Mrs Scrooge into the spirit of Christmas, but it takes a lot of jokes and a visit from Santa and his wife to bring her round.

Running time: approx 25 mins

Original Synopsis: A family is preparing to set off on a holiday trip, much to the chagrin of the children, who really don’t want to go along.  Fate intervenes with the arrival of three space/time travelers who think it’s July, 1958.  Since they want to study the holidays, the American teenagers convince them that Christmas would be the best choice.  The aliens "clone" themselves into roles as two members of the family, leaving the teenagers to spend the holiday visiting with the third member of the group from space.  The aliens experience a host of holiday adventures and come back with plans to celebrate Christmas on their own planet when they return.

This play has adaptions to make it more Aussie.

Running time: approx 30 mins
