It's the Christmas season. Eric arranges for the three oldest children to do some charity work in the community and they aren't too happy about it. Back at home, Simon has trouble giving up his favorite Christmas pajamas, despite having outgrown them, and he certainly isn't about to pass them down to his little sister. The family fears that Ruthie has uncovered "the truth" about Santa while Mary befriends a homeless young man at the soup kitchen and invites him back to the house.
The episode was included on the 7th Heaven: The Complete Third Season DVD set, released in 2006.
