First Shown: 24 December 1975
It's Christmas and the staff gets together to come up with ideas to add some Christmas spirit to the store. However, none of the ideas (holly in the drawers, for example) seem to go over well. Meanwhile, the annual Christmas dinner is later on and Mr. Lucas realizes that he forgot to buy his ticket for it; therefore he won't be able to partake. The decision on the Christmas theme is to create a Christmas-themed playland, including decking the staff out in costumes; naturally, they are not too pleased at this. Later on, at the Christmas dinner, including the crackers and (I may be wrong on this one) a piece of carved cheese older than God, Mr. Grace stops by and presents them each with a "generous" present of a coin. Also, Mr. Lucas realizes that he wasn't missing much in terms of food. After a little resistance to the holiday floor scenario, the gets into the holiday spirit.
