Inspiration can strike anywhere, and that means even the idea for a new Christmas song while walking into a fast food joint.

"The truth is (the song) actually came out of a Wendy's burger," Made in Manitoba artist and worship pastor Jake Fretz says about his Christmas single "Emmanuel God With Us."

The worship pastor at Prairie Alliance Church in Portage la Prairie, Man., says he's been getting ready for Christmas at church pretty much since Easter.
