Summary
  • The chimes: High up in the steeple, where spiders spin their castles in the air, the spirits of the bells appear and take Toby Veck on a New Year's Eve journey during which he discovers all that he has to be grateful for
  • The cricket on the hearth: Does the cricket who sits and chips from the hearth of John and Dot Peerybingle have some supernatural powers? Does he restore faith and overcome suspicion? Does he give hope to a poor blind girl? This fairy tale of home is infused with the spirit of the season
  • The seven poor travelers: On Christmas Eve, a traveling gentleman happens upon a house in a quaint little village that houses up to six travelers each evening. He decides to treat them all to a Christmas dinner and to tell them a story around the fireplace, a story of a soldier who finds the true meaning of forgiveness and redemption
  • A Christmas carol: Ebenizer Scrooge is visited by Christmas ghosts
