Synopsis by Hal Erickson
We know what we're in for when the episode begins with a disclaimer: "The following depicts a Bundy Christmas. It could be upsetting to small children and others. Parental guidance is suggested." Every Christmas Eve, Santa Claus parachutes into the Lakeside Shopping Mail. This year, however, the chute fails and Santa crashlands onto the Bundy's yard--dead as a doornail. Now Al must temporarily take over Santa's duties, which he does with his customary grace and tact. Featured as a snotty kid named Nestor is Michael Faustino, brother of series regular David Faustino).
