It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Springfield, but while Marge (Julie Kavner) gets in the holiday spirit, it's bah humbug for the rest of the family. Marge writes a letter to Martha Clause (guest voice Martha Stewart) asking for help.

Later, Donna (Sanaa Lathan), frustrated by her husband's laziness on the weekends, nags Cleveland (Mike Henry) to do something more with his life.

Every year, Burt (Garret Dillahunt) gets the season's hottest toys and sells them off for money, and Jimmy (Lucas Neff) is always disappointed because his dad never saves him any of the cool gifts. This year, Burt lets Jimmy in on his scheme and agrees to split half the cash with him, but Jimmy makes him promise to save one toy for Hope. Meanwhile, Virginia (Martha Plimpton) signs the family up to participate in their church's living nativity scene in order to gain respect from the other parishioners. Her plan to have Hope play baby Jesus is destroyed when another family's baby is selected to play the role, so the family springs into action and organizes a competing nativity scene.
