Actually Michael Blake himself points this out, that the Ghost of Christmas Future wore black robes and that it was Jacob Marley who wore the chains. It's just supposed to show that Al hadn't done his research before dressing up (not that they had a lot of time mind you, he might not have read/watched A Christmas Carol in many years).
