I Wish It’s Was Christmas (all year) is a timeless, feel good Christmas tale of love, lasting friendship and sweet compassion for all. It is a place where a frosty west side street becomes the setting for beautiful story within a story, where the meaning of Christmas transcends far beyond the 25th of December.
It’s December 24th Christmas eve on Old Blame Road, a swanky west side-shopping district.
The snow is lightly falling as two musicians buskers play yuletide songs, hoping the true spirit of Christmas will catch on with last minute shoppers and allow some Christmas cheer in their direction. This year is also a time of reflection, as the recent closure of the Old Blame Road Theatre has unwittingly become the backdrop for a truly magical Christmas tale.
This is where a contrite homeless man finds refuge from the chilly night by cuddling under piles of blankets while hoping his “spare change” can, will reap the benefit of the season. To him mostly it’s just another night fighting the elements and running from the past. Then a mystical jovial homeless woman appears on the scene, with her shopping cart full of life stories and a few other charmed surprises. This chance encounter sets off an enchanting chain of events, where the spirit of Christmas takes on its true meaning.
I Wish It Was Christmas (all year) – was written and recorded by Brad Carrigan and co- produced by Juno award winner Paul Hyde. The CD Mix was donated by Brian Adams ware- house studio (Vancouver).
