It's Christmas Day on Mount Pleasant and there's plenty of festive cheer to go round. Almost. Lisa's down in the dumps because she misses her parents who have moved to Spain, but surely Dan's thoughtful presents will cheer her up? If only furry Crocs had been on her list to Santa. And things only get worse when a grumpy Pauline sticks her nose where it isn't wanted in the kitchen.

The day's looking a bit more jolly over at Bianca's, what with her abundance of gifts for Gary. Although she can't help but be disappointed when the teen refuses to join her in volunteering at Reverend Roger's homeless shelter. It's Chris to the rescue, however, as he shows Gary the error of his ways. But their happiness is short lived when disaster strikes at home thanks to an overflowing bath.

As everyone congregates at Lisa and Dan's in an attempt to save Christmas, there's turkey and tinsel aplenty, not to mention an engagement, drunken speeches, kisses under the mistletoe and a spot of seasonal karaoke.
