Overview

A Christmas Carol: When the miserly Scrooge retires for the day on Christmas Eve, he is visited by the ghost of his long-dead partner, Jacob Marley, who warns him of what surely will be if he doesn't change his stingy ways, namely the untimely death of Tiny Tim. Highlighting the virtues of Christian love, hope, and generosity, A Christmas Carol is a story that extols timeless lessons for today.

The Christmas Angel: Once Miss Terry believed in the Christmas Spirit, but too many disappointments have taken their toll and she is determined to prove that there is no Christmas Spirit by throwing her toys out onto the sidewalk in front of her house. Miss Terry tosses each toy one by one to the snowy sidewalk in front of her house. But her heart is moved when she sees the Christmas Angel kicked aside. Remembering all the years it graced her family mantel, she rushes to rescue it. Back inside, the Christmas Angel comes to life, and reveals the actual destiny for each toy, and for Miss Terry, that she could have never imagined. The Christmas Angel is a stirring reminder of what really matters at Christmas and throughout the year.
