Change background cell color

hi.... How do I change the background cell color in Calendar? I'm trying to use with Converter with no success...
this is what I have so far:

        public object Convert(object value, Type targetType, object parameter, CultureInfo language)
            var appointments = parameter as Dictionary<DateTime, Appointment>;
            var date = (DateTime)value;
            if (appointments != null)
                if (appointments.ContainsKey(date))
                    return Colors.Magenta;

            return null;

Data template:

<DataTemplate x:Key="Celltemplate">
                    Text="{Binding Converter={StaticResource Converter}, ConverterParameter={StaticResource Appointments}}"
                    Foreground="{Binding Converter={StaticResource ColorConverter}, ConverterParameter={StaticResource Appointments}}"
                    Text="{Binding Day}"

Ok, I found the solution. I hope it helps someone.

The problem was with the return of the Converter function. It must be return new SolidColorBrush(Colors.Magenta); instead of return Colors.Magenta;.
