The Perksons just love Christmas - especially Mum, who starts preparing for the perfect Christmas early in the autumn. Sometimes her plans are so ambitious that she runs out of steam. For Dad, the most important thing is to have the garden decorated with tons of Christmas lights. The fuses are about to blow every time he comes up with another new light arrangement to his own and the neighbours' delight. The last presents are found in the nick of time, and things don't play out as planned. By mistake, the children mix up the name tags. Will it all end in a disaster like Mum dreads, or will Christmas come in the middle of these not-so-perfect preparations after all?
