It's Christmas time and Tim wants to win the Christmas lighting contest which Doc Johnson has won for the last nine years. He doesn't understand why everytime he puts something up on the roof, Doc has already done it right before him. He finds out that Randy has been talking to Doc's granddaughter and she pumped him for information. Brad wants to spend Christmas skiing with Tom Wheeler's family but, because it is on Christmas Day, Tim and Jill won't let him go. When all the family except Brad are at church, Tim walks home to talk to Brad and finds him on his way to go skiing.
