The Night Before Christmas

On the night before Christmas, Emily stares out of the window, hugs her teddy and waits excitedly for the morning, while in the corner a little mouse called Eddie can’t understand why only humans are allowed to get presents. So he sets off in search of Father Christmas to find out for himself.

Along the way he dodges the family cat, gets directions from a cowardly robot and is given some unexpected advice from the magical fairy on top of the tree. Will Eddie get an answer? Will Emily get her wish? And what is that funny-shaped present sitting under the tree?

A Christmas Carol

"Bah! Humbug! It's just an excuse to pick a man's pocket once a year!"

The old miser Ebenezer Scrooge has no time for Christmas or those that celebrate it.

One night he is visited by the ghostly apparition of his seven years dead business partner, Jacob Marley. Marley is condemned, for eternity, to wander the earth shackled by the chain of wrong doing he forged in life. He tells Scrooge that he will be visited by three spirits and therefore afforded the chance to escape the same fate. But, will Scrooge choose to amend his ways? Does he deserve a second chance?
