The ghost of Christmas present appears at 2:00 AM Christmas morning. Then he and Scrooge live through Christmas day. He disappears Christmas night at midnight. Also, the Marley brothers never tell Scrooge that the three spirits will come at 1:00, 2:00, and 3:00. All they say is "expect the first ghost when the bell tolls one".

The Ghost says that his life will end "upon the STROKE of twelve", i.e. when the bell rings for the twelfth time. Count the rings. It hadn't happened yet. It's not a slipup.
