Mr. Krueger’s Christmas is a short film produced in 1980 by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints starring JamesStewart and featuring the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.

Willy Krueger is a custodian in an apartment building on Christmas Eve who, while good-natured, has a tendency to let his imagination get away from him. That night, alone in his small apartment, he invites some passing carolers in and finds himself thinking about all the things he loves about the holiday, leading up to a conversation with the Child for which it’s named.
