Christmas in Wonderland is a 2007 comedy film about three children who move with their father from Los Angeles to Edmonton, Alberta, where they catch a group of counterfeiters while Christmas shopping.


The Saunders family has just moved from Los Angeles to Edmonton right before Christmas leaving them with no Christmas spirit with the exception of the bright eyed six-year-old Mary. With their mother, Judy, stuck in L.A., it is up to Wayne, the father, and his kids to go to West Edmonton Mall to fulfill the Christmas shopping duties. Things start looking a bit more like Christmas when twelve-year-old Brian and Mary find a large amount of money and launch on a shopping spree across the mall, until the criminals who counterfeited it begin to chase them through the mall.



The film is largely set in and mostly filmed at West Edmonton Mall. Secrecy before it was announced led many Edmontonians to wonder why Christmas decorations were still in place long after the Christmas season had passed.


The film was exhibited theatrically in Canada in 2007, but in the United States it premiered on television in 2008 as part of ABC Family's 25 Days of Christmas programming block.
