A Stranger in the Mist is a story that portrays the frantic lifestyle of those preparing for Christmas in a small town. To those who inhabit the town, the required preparations for what is perceived as a meaningful holiday is all that is on anyone’s mind. There is an inventory of obligatory things that must be accomplished, gifts that must be purchased, a business-like check list it seems, and woe be to anything or anybody who gets in the way fulfilling the season’s compulsory tasks. That is, until a stranger comes to town. The town is enveloped in a pervasive fog, causing the inhabitants to lose their way, literally and figuratively. It is not until the stranger shares his message with the townsfolk that the people begin to see clearly again. And what they see is shocking, until they turn to the stranger’s message.
