Hallmark puts a modern twist on Dickens' 'A Christmas Carol'

MUMBAI: Magic is everywhere, a miracle is for everybody! This Christmas Hallmark the channel that deals with emotions will bring yuletide cheer to viewers through its programme band X-Mas Nights.

Five films will air this week. One of them that encapsulates what Christmas is all about is A Carol Christmas. This airs on 25 December at 9:45 pm. When you pit three ghosts against a feisty over ambitious television host you get a modern take on Charles Dickens' classic novel A Christmas Carol..

Like the character Scrooge in the novel the lead chcracter played by Tori Spelling is self obsessed. She only cares about herself and the ever important Nielsen ratings. One night the ghost of her Aunt Marla (Marley) Dinah Manoff visits her and warns her that she will be visited by three ghosts.

Fallen Angel airs on 26 December at 9:45 pm. Gary Sinise plays a man who is consumed by work. After learning of his estranged father's death and returns home to settle his affairs. While he plans to stay only a few days, the man's visit is prolonged when he gets caught up in the life of a woman he has not seen since he was a child.

Through helping her reunite with her own father, whom she has never met, he discovers a side to his father that he never knew. Sinise falls in love with the woman and her young daughter and realises what's truly important in life.
