With Tim Lovejoy giving emergency repairs to his train set and Ned fainting at the sight of blood it falls to Homer to deliver the Christmas sermon in which Joseph and Mary look like him and Marge and the baby Jesus is a dead ringer for Bart. Grandpa Abe recalls how he and Mr. Burns crash-landed on a Pacific island in World War Two where Burns accidentally shot down Santa and Abe helped mend his sleigh. Finally the citizens of Springfield go nutty as they put words to selections from 'The Nutcracker Suite'.
