Forgive me if I am wrong. It has been done in your name, or at least in that of your family.
As Pissy Patty gets home on Christmas Eve she hears a knock on her door. As she gets closer to to door she relies that its her roommate that died many years ago, Nina Bobina. Patty then gets frightened. As Patty gets closer the ghost whispers something. However Patty can't quite understand.
You will be visited by three spirits over the next three nights
Patty awakes and remembers what the ghost had said. That there will be three spirits that visit and that the first one will come at midnight. Patty waits and then hears the ghost. The ghost takes Patty to her elementary school and it brings back all her old memories that she had for when she felt alone and it begins to make her sad.
I know it
The school is not quite deserted. A solitary child, neglected by his friends, is left there still
The second ghost arrives at 1 a.m. However Patty waits awhile for the ghost to arrive and runs into another room where the ghost has been waiting. The ghost then takes Patty to multiple Christmas parties. However one in particular stands out. Patty sees Crabby Abby and sees how small and sick she is and it might not be too long till Abby is gone. Abby might not see another Christmas.
The third ghost appears and takes Patty to strange places. The ghost takes Patty to a pamn shop where people sell a rich persons stuff and Patty is determined to find out who it is. The ghost then takes Patty to a cemetery where she realizes that the old rich person was her. She then makes a promise that she will honor Christmas deep within her heart.
Spirit! Hear me! I am not the man I was. I will not be the man I must have been but for this intercourse. Why show me this, if I am past all hope!
The next day Patty wakes up all happy. She finally realizes the importants of Christmas. Barley dress, she dances in the mirror and is now a Positive Patty. Happy as can be, she finally is open to the idea of Christmas. She will now donate to the poor and attend many Christmas parties that she nominally not attend. Merry Christmas!
