…All I want for Christmas is a happy ending…

Christmas is coming: the geese are getting fat.

But that’s not all that’s happening.

Tyler is searching for an angel that looks just right. Sam is worried about polar bears. Dylan and Bronwen hear a ghost on Christmas Eve. But what about Bradley? He is setting a trap for Santa!

Come for yuletide yarns where things end well (except for the goose) at 1pm on Sunday 4th December.
