Christmas is coming, and Lois is doing all she can to get the Griffin household ready for the big occasion. Stewie is going to play Jesus in the town nativity scene, and Peter is going out to do the family's gift shopping. Along the way, however, Peter manages to give away all the presents to charity, Brian sets the house on fire, and Stewie becomes obsessed with getting plutonium from Santa Claus. Will Lois keep from cracking under the strain?
