BRANČ CASTLE: A SLOVAK CHRISTMAS CAROL

Seven years after the death of Ebenezer Scrooge's business partner, Jacob Marley, Scrooge, an ageing miser, dislikes Christmas and refuses a dinner invitation from his nephew Fred. He turns away two men who seek a donation from him to provide food and heating for the poor, and only grudgingly allows his overworked, underpaid clerk, Bob Cratchit, Christmas Day off with pay to conform to the social custom. That night Scrooge is visited at home by Marley's ghost, who wanders the Earth entwined by heavy chains and money boxes forged during a lifetime of greed and selfishness. Marley tells Scrooge that he has a single chance to avoid the same fate: he will be visited by three spirits and must listen or be cursed to carry much heavier chains of his own.

And that probably should have happened many years ago on the Branč castle hill. The mingy construction works avoid helping a poor man. And that can very good happen every day. But there is always an another option. A change. And listening to the  voice of Christmas. As Scrooge did. He awaken on Christmas morning as a changed man.
