This Christmas Eve special deals with Big Bird's anxiety that Santa will be unable to fit through the narrow Sesame Street chimneys, and it teaches a lesson about generosity by showing the sacrifices that Bert and Ernie make in order to give each other Christmas gifts. The program features a variety of seasonal songs and opens with the Sesame Street cast enjoying an outing at an ice-skating rink.
