-You won't get this tree decorated with snowballs.
Time to come in now, children. I need some help.
There are lots of things to do for our Christmas Eve dinner.
-Great shot, Mum.
-You're the champion.
I wish it was tomorrow. Then I could open my presents.
What? And miss Christmas Eve.
Mum's lovely dinner and Granny and Grandpa - they'll be here soon.
Come on. We can get everything ready. Let's decorate the tree.
Why don't we each prepare a special secret surprise for Christmas Eve?
That's a great idea, Laura.
I don't know. I haven't got any ideas.
You can keep your coat on, Lester.
I need you to go to Mr Short's shop
-and buy me another tin of chestnuts.
-But Mr Short's always in a bad mood.
Do I have to go?
Yes, everyone has to do their bit. It's part of the Christmas spirit.
Wow, look at Laura. The Christmas film star.
Look out, Dad!
The Christmas tree.
Just like that, Dad. That's perfect.
Yes, but I'm not going to spend the evening like this!
-Hello, Mr Short.
-Oh, hello, Lester.
-Have you got any chestnuts, please?
Why do the customers wait till the last minute
to do their Christmas shopping?
Ah, I was looking for chestnuts too.
There, that's a tin of chestnuts,
-and I've come to pick up the order my mum left yesterday.
I haven't had time to get it ready, Lola. Can you come back in an hour?
-You can pay for the chestnuts then too.
-Yes, no problem, see you later.
Oh, erm, sorry, Mr Short.
-Ah, that looks wonderful. Well done, you two.
Now, time to go and prepare your surprises.
Great, I've thought of a good idea after all.
Jolly good, Luke. I knew you'd come up with something.
-Erm, is there anything else you need?
Ho-ho-ho, that's very kind of you, but I think we're OK now.
-How about granny's favourite shortbread?
-Well, I never.
Just now, you didn't want to go to the shop.
Now you're offering to go back.
It seems you've finally understood the meaning of Christmas spirit.
Now, what's that sister of yours up to?
Nobody's allowed in my room.
I'm here if you want any help.
No, Mum. I've decided I want to prepare my surprise by myself.
-Thought of anything else you need from the shop?
I could do with some butter and icing sugar.
-I'm going to have to ice this cake again!
Just a minute, Mrs Sweet. Your order is ready.
Oh, thank you, Mr Short.
I don't suppose you sell ovens?
Our's has broken down and I have five guests coming for Christmas Eve,
and a huge turkey to cook.
Oh, well. Thanks for getting the order ready.
Come on, Lola, we must be off. Are you coming?
What can I do? I can't make an oven for her, can I?
Mrs Sweet, come back please.
Ahem, is there anybody in the shop who can lend an oven to Mrs Sweet,
so she can cook her turkey for this evening?
Oh, thank you, Mr Short.
This kind lady is going to let me cook my turkey in her oven.
It's not me you should thank, Mrs Sweet.
It was young Lester Large who had that bright idea.
Wow, thank you, Lester.
A Christmas tree, do you know where I can find a Christmas tree?
The special one that Mr Smart ordered hasn't been delivered.
My poor Sebastian cannot have Christmas without his tree.
I don't sell Christmas trees. I'm sorry, Mrs Smart.
Oh... Oh, poor Sebastian.
What about the little tree? You could lend her it, for a few days.
I suppose the shop's closing soon.
How about that one, do you like it?
Oh, it's sweet.
With a few extra baubles, it will be even sweeter.
-I'll give it to you.
-Oh, thank you!
Right, I've got to get home. My family's waiting for me and...
Oh, the whole family getting together for Christmas Eve.
-Thanks, Mr Short, you have a happy Christmas too.
And a happy Christmas to you, Lester.
Lola! Erm, did you forget something?
No, you're very kind. We saw you from outside,
and we wondered if you'd like to come for tea next Wednesday?
Come about four.
We live at number 56.
There. My surprise is all ready.
So, how's your surprise going?
Erm, well... I haven't really had the time.
-Ha-ha, hello, Grandpa.
I say, you look full of beans, Lester.
Of course. Lester has spent the whole afternoon
buying one tin of chestnuts, a packet of sugar and some butter.
Oh, the butter! Must've left it on the counter.
-I'll have to go back.
-Better hurry, the shop will be closed.
You forgot your butter earlier, Lester. It's in the fridge.
Sorry to keep you. Are you gonna be late for your dinner?
I've not invited anybody and nobody's invited me.
You're spending Christmas Eve on your own? That's not your dinner?
Every year, I take the opportunity to do my stocktaking.
-Can I call my mum and dad please?
Well, as surprises go, this is a surprise!
Merry Christmas and welcome, Mr Short.
I've set a place for you.
Sit down, make yourself at home.
Thanks to you, I am having the happiest Christmas of my life.
Thanks to you, Lester.
You know, this afternoon, in the shop,
Lester helped several of my customers to have a happy Christmas.
What a great idea, dear.
Putting whole squares of chocolate inside the log.
It wasn't me. I didn't put chocolate inside the log.
Did you do it, Granny?
-There you are, that's Lucy's surprise.
Well, Laura. Is your surprise ready?
What fun. Well done, Laura.
OK, let's go into the warmth for Luke's surprise.
I'm really worried now, because my surprise isn't as nice as Laura's.
ALL: Luke, Luke!
# Oh, Christmas tree Oh, Christmas tree... #
Oh, no, I've forgotten it already.
# How lovely are your branches?... #
# Oh, Christmas tree Oh, Christmas tree
# How lovely are your branches?
# In beauty green, will always grow
# Through summer sun and winter snow
# Oh, Christmas tree
# Oh, Christmas tree
# How lovely are your branches? #
ALL: Happy Christmas, everyone!
