Music: “To Build a Home” by The Cinematic Orchestra.

Christmas Miracle of the Day: 59-year-old Brenda Hewlett, who has never so much as held a hockey stick, makes a 114-foot, once-in-a-million-lifetimes puck shot during halftime at an Akwesasne Warriors game to win a brand new 2012 Ford F-150 from Frenchie’s Ford in Massena, NY.

Street Art of the Day: It took 16 long days and over 500 cans of spray paint, but the Montreal-based artist-run collective A’Shop finally completed its massive Art Nouveau-inspired mural of “a modern-day Our Lady of Grace.”
