It’s Christmas, and all of the Taylors are getting into the holiday spirit. Tim has built has built an elaborate light display on his front lawn that blinds the entire neighborhood, while Brad and Randy are going door-to-door collecting money for charity. When Tim and Jill catch Brad and Randy trying to steal some of the charity money they’ve raised, they’re shocked that their kids could be so dishonest. But afterwards, the guilt-ridden boys not only return the stolen money, but dig up bags of their own possessions that they can donate to charity as well.
Meanwhile, on the set of Tool Time, Tim is forced to deal with Maureen’s micromanagement while trying to produce an episode with musical guests, inexplicably, the Manhattan Transfer.
