THE STORY
It's Christmas time in Hooterville, and Oliver wants nothing more than an old fashioned Christmas. It seems however, that he is the only one that knows how to truly celebrate Christmas. Everyone else is buying plastic trees with geniune spruce spray, automatic oozers, wax popcorn strings, fibreglass candy canes, and bags of plastic pine needles to clog up their vacuums.

To make matters worse, when Oliver goes to fulfill his dream of cutting down his own Christmas tree, he discovers that it's illegal because of the State Forest Conservation Law.

Fortunately with the help of Mr. Kimble (who gives him a tree chopping permit) and Mrs. Ziffel (who teaches Lisa how to make fruitcake), it looks like it will be an old fashioned Christmas after all.

On Christmas Eve, the whole Hooterville gang drop in to see a real Christmas tree and sing songs, but unfortunately, Lisa scares them all off when she offers them some of her homemade fruitcake.

Lisa and Oliver enjoy a perfect Christmas Eve by themselves though, courtesy of some well placed mistletoe and Mr. Haney sitting on the roof, throwing soap flakes in front of the window as Lisa's gift to Oliver.
