Hallmark to celebrate Christmas spirit with specials

MUMBAI: With Christmas just a month away, Hallmark plans to fill the air with good cheer through films and a musical special.


On 21 December, the channel will air A Christmas Visitor at 10:15 pm. A family shattered by the past and struggling with the future will be changed by one visitor. In the small American town of New Chatham, Christmas is approaching for the Boyajian family. But a husband, wife and their daughter have lost the desire to celebrate. They have been immersed in grief since the death of their son on Christmas Eve in 1991 during the Gulf War,

The family has forgone the familial comfort and pleasures of the holidays. Things start to turn around when the father picks up a hitchhiker. He agrees to pretend that he knew their beloved son in the war.

On Christmas eve at 9:30 pm, the appropriately titled Silent Night airs: It is set during the second world war in Germany's Ardennes forest. Soldiers are forced to confront the realities of the war face to face. What they discover is the true meaning of courage and the true spirit of the night on which Christ was born. It stars Linda Hamilton of Terminator fame.

On Christmas Day 25 December the film Santa Jr. takes centrestage at the same time. The focus is on Santa's son . Chris Kringle, Jr. He is going into the family business, but the reluctant heir to the gift-giving throne isn't exactly living up to his potential. Therefore he has to learn to trust the Christmas spirit and believe in the magic of giving. After all, the future of Christmas depends on it.

The action continues on Boxing Day with Mr. St. Nick. Santa is all set to retire and turn over the sleigh to his son, Nick St. Nicholas. However junior is too busy soaking up the sun in Miami to have any interest in the on goings at Mistletoe Manor. In addition, a less than noble public relations guy now has junior's ear, with plans to exploit his royal connections online. It stars Charles Durning and Frasier's Kelsey Grammer

On 28 December at 10:15 pm the channel has a musical treat in store. A Musical Christmas From The Vatican will air. Famous musicians from around the world perform in front of Pope Paul VI including Canadian rock star Bryan Adams.
