The ghost of Christmas Past is a Monarch butterfly named Mariposa who takes Scrooge back to his humble roots in Michoacan, Mexico. In Native American mythology butterflies sybolized rebirth, beauty, and metamorphosis. NOVA on PBS has an excellent episode on the amazing migration of the Monarchs. I have condensed it to a five and a half minute video which gives a lot of insight into the character of Mariposa. Enjoy!
