Inviting Sam into her house to escape the incoming ice storm, Kathleen gradually opens up to the stranger while at the same time striving to establish a bond with her finance's precocious daughter Lucy (Cameron ten Naple).

But it's the younger children -- aspiring ball player Russell; Hopalong Cassidy fan Norman; and straight-talking little Ruthie -- who struggle most with a bleak-looking future. Now, with their mother gone and their father, William, overwhelmed by the dismal economy and mounting doctor bills resulting from young Norman's battle with polio, the Kamp siblings fully expect a Christmas without presents or festivities. But when William scrapes together a dollar in coins to use only for Christmas gifts, everything begins to change. As each member of the family comes up with a special gift that costs little or no money to be given to another member of the family, the Kamps soon begin to see many of their dearest wishes come true. And just when Norman and Ruthie believe their hopes and dreams are dashed, small miracles of service and sacrifice bring them joy and teach the true meaning of Christmas giving.

Christmas for a Dollar - 11 PM

America is in the midst of the Great Depression, and the Kamp family is struggling to get by, especially since Mrs. Kamp's untimely death nearly a year ago. Eighteen-year-old Verna does her best to take care of the family while going to school, and seventeen-year-old Warren is anxious to work and earn money to help the family in spite of his father's protests. But it's the younger children -- aspiring ball player Russell; Hopalong Cassidy fan Norman; and straight-talking little Ruthie -- who struggle most with a bleak-looking future. Now, with their mother gone and their father, William, overwhelmed by the dismal economy and mounting doctor bills resulting from young Norman's battle with polio, the Kamp siblings fully expect a Christmas without presents or festivities. But when William scrapes together a dollar in coins to use only for Christmas gifts, everything begins to change. As each member of the family comes up with a special gift that costs little or no money to be given to another member of the family, the Kamps soon begin to see many of their dearest wishes come true. And just when Norman and Ruthie believe their hopes and dreams are dashed, small miracles of service and sacrifice bring them joy and teach the true meaning of Christmas giving. Perhaps a boy who struggles to walk can become a real cowboy after all.

Unfortunately, it turns out that Max has goofed: Instead of Sally, he was supposed to come to the aid of Karl Hoffman (Seann Gallagher), a misguided young man who is poised to lay off the artisans working at the glass factory run by his Uncle Gregory (Mark Anthony Krupa), an East German refugee. Thus it is that Max's heavenly superior, an attractive angel named Jo (Katey Sagal), descends to earth to untangle the mess. Subsequently, however, both Max and Jo come to realize that the ultimates fates of Sally and Karl are inextricably intertwined. As was the case in the earlier A Town Without Christmas and Finding John Christmas, the cagey Max adopts several disguises in the course of his assignment, at one point showing up in drag!

The Kid Who Loved Christmas - 11 AM 
UP
The Kid Who Loved Christmas is a nicely acted family melodrama that briefly features Sammy Davis Jr., in his final screen performance. The kid who loves Christmas is Reggie (Trent Cameron), a young orphan on the verge of being adopted by a jazz musician (Hill Street Blues' Michael Warren) and his wife (singer Vanessa Williams). But just as the adoption is about to be finalized, Williams is killed in a car accident. Warren spends most of the movie battling with a social worker (Good Times' Esther Rolle), who is now withholding approval of the adoption — she doesn't think Warren's traveling-jazzman life would be a good influence on Reggie.

To make matters worse Paul's newly appointed assistant (Mark Wootton) has taken strides in fuelling his "little white lie," making matters a whole lot more complicated as Maddens finds himself in the midst of much unwanted attention.
