Belle is eager to celebrate Christmas in the magic castle with Beast. The enchanted servants of the castle long to celebrate Christmas with Belle, but Beast forbids it because it reminds him of his curse which occurred on Christmas. Forte, the enchanted court composer, wishes to remain in his enchanted immortal form. He attempts to trick Belle into celebrating Christmas anyway to increase Beast's fury and stop Belle and Beast from falling in love to break the curse. Forte's trick works until Beast discovers the storybook Belle intended to give Beast for Christmas. Beast's heart is softened. Forte is defeated by Beast and the other enchanted servants. Christmas is celebrated, and the Beast and Belle continue their journey towards the love required to break the curse.
