True to form, Mr. Bean's holiday adventures are one-of-a-kind in this fan-favorite episode. After going Christmas shopping at Harrod's to buy lights for his tree, a quick stop for some much-needed playtime in the children's department leaves the store slightly different than he found it. Later, Bean gathers money for a Salvation Army band and tries to take over as conductor. He takes joy in the free entertainment provided by carol singing, but doesn't quite understand the spirit of Christmas when he steals himself a tree. Finally, he is given a free turkey, which he prepares in a most unusual fashion, managing to upset his poor girlfriend at Christmas Day lunch.
