A Town Called Christmas

A Town Called Christmas is a story that, with minor adjustments, could probably take place any time in the past sixty years. A jilted naval pilot visits the hometown of a friend over the holidays and falls for the friend’s pregnant sister. Sounds like something Hollywood would have produced in t ...
