The Gift of the Magi, is a warm-hearted, romantic comedy in which a young couple learns the importance of the gift of love. Della and Jim eagerly await their first Christmas together as a married couple. However, times are hard and the two find themselves lacking the money to buy each other the proper Christmas gift. In a strange twist of fate, they end up finding the perfect gifts but at an unexpected cost in this adaptation by Jon Jory of the O. Henry story.

In Nativity on the Square by Tom Long, the figures of a public creche scene come to life on Christmas Eve and attempt to discover who they are. A drunken bag lady explains the Nativity to them in a manner that is both comic and deeply moving.
