While Christmas shopping, Mr Bean purchases a bulky string of tree lights before making a shambles of a department store toy section. He later manages to acquire a free turkey and Christmas tree, and attempts to conduct a Salvation Army band. Finally, during Christmas dinner, Bean has quite a surprise in store for his long-suffering girlfriend.

In some international broadcasts (such as on HBO in the US) and on some home media releases (the Canadian VHS and 10th Anniversary Australian DVD) this episode included a scene where Mr. Bean wins a free turkey by sneaking a bathroom scale into the butcher shop to allow him to guess the weight. This is an added scene that did not appear in the original UK broadcasts. It was likely added to the HBO broadcast to lengthen the running time. See more
