On Christmas Eve Frank and Carol have been too busy to buy gifts, and the kids insist on getting gifts. So Frank decides to get them at a store where he had been working and lets himself and Carol in with the key. A deputy sees them there and arrests them for burglary. He locks them up and can't let them out until the judge returns from his holiday, which means they'll be in jail for Christmas.
