It’s a Wonderful Death

It’s Christmas Eve, 1945 in Bedford Falls. George Bailey is having a really bad day. In a moment of desperation he wishes that he had never been born.

Someone in this sleepy town is a murderer.

Miracle on Jasper Avenue

Christmas, 1947

As Edmontonians prepare for their festive celebrations, they all take time to cheer on the Edmonton Flyers hockey team or enjoy the window displays of Hudson’s Department Store on Jasper Avenue. But the winter weather and the overall hustle and bustle of everyday life has everyone in a slump. What the city needs is a good old-fashioned injection of Christmas spirit. So Hudson’s announces a contest… and a stranger comes in from the North.


Who has been naughty? Who has been nice? Whose heart is as black as a lump of coal that smoulders with enough fiery rage to commit . . . murder?
