Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Upset that the citizens of Hooterville prefer plastic and prefabricated Christmas decorations, Oliver stages a one-man protest against the commercialization of the Yuletide season. To this end, he intends to cut down his own Christmas tree, which happens to be a spruce growing on his property. When he finds out that he needs a permit for this operation, the townsfolk muster their forces to block Oliver's efforts to get permission. Without giving away the outcome, it can be observed that Lisa (Eva Gabor) is no more successful at baking fruitcakes than she is at baking anything else!
