Where did the second ghost take Scrooge in the story 'A Christmas Carol'?

Speaking literally, Jacob Marley is the first ghost and The Ghost of Christmas Past is the second. However, you probably were referring to The Ghost of Christmas Present as the second ghost. This ghost takes Scrooge to his clerk Bob Cratchit's house and to his nephew Fred's house. Scrooge sees how sincerely both these men would like to be his friend and they speak well of him and only wish him the best.The ghost of Christmas present takes scrooge to his clerks Bob Cratchit's house to see that Tiny Tim is not at all well and the ghost takes him to his nephews house, {Fred}, to see that there playing a Christmas game, guess who i am, and Fred was it also he was pretending to be scrooge. Scrooge wasn't happy about that but he couldn't do anything about it.Back went the ghost and scrooge to his home.And next came the third ghost.Message: To have a better attitude, be nice to other people, and just to be overall happy.The spirit orders Scrooge to touch his robe. Upon doing so, the feast and the room vanish instantly and Scrooge finds himself alongside the spirit in the midst of the bustling city on Christmas morning. Blissful passersby take pleasure in the wondrous sights and smells abounding through the shop doors. People merrily shovel snow, tote bags of presents, and greet one another with a cheery "Merry Christmas!"The spirit then takes Scrooge to the meager home of Bob Cratchit, where Mrs. Cratchit and her children prepare a Christmas goose and savor the few Christmas treats they can afford. The oldest daughter, Martha, returns from her job at a milliner's. The oldest son, Peter, wears a stiff-collared shirt, a hand-me-down from his father. Bob comes in carrying the crippled young tyke, Tiny Tim, on his shoulders. The family is more than content despite its skimpy Christmas feast. Scrooge begs to know whether Tiny Tim will survive. The spirit replies that given the current conditions in the Cratchit house, there will inevitably be an empty chair at next year's Christmas dinner.The spirit takes Scrooge to a number of other Christmas gatherings, including the festivities of an isolated community of miners and a party aboard a ship. He also takes Scrooge to Fred's Christmas party, where Scrooge looses himself in the numerous party games and has a wildly entertaining time, though none of the party guests can actually see him. As the night unfolds, the ghost grows older. At last, Scrooge and the ghost come to a vast and desolate expanse. Here, the ghost shows Scrooge a pair of starving children who travel with him beneath his robes--their names are Ignorance and Want. Scrooge inquires if nothing can be done to help them. Mockingly, the ghost quotes Scrooge's earlier retort, "Are there no prisons? Are there no workhouses ?"The spirit disappears as the clock strikes midnight and Scrooge eyes a hooded phantom coming toward him.

Who are Ignorance and Want in A Christmas Carol?

These are the names of two children reveled from beneath the robe of the ghost of Christmas present. Scrooge wants to know whose children they are and is told " they are of mans making". Scrooge is told that the boy is ignorance and the girl is want. But scrooge should be very aware of the boy (ignorance) when scrooge sees their pitiful form, malnourished painfully thin and ragged Scrooge asks "do they have no one to care for them, have they no resource? He is rounded on by the ghost who bellows " are there no prison, are there no work houses?". This was to make scrooge see that there was a huge level of want all around him and his ignorance blinded him to the level of desperate deprivation around him. It was also a message about society's view of the poor. Many were starving, no work, sickness was rife and those who had the money and power to make changes were ignorant to the level of want
