It's Christmas and Sam and Dean look into the murders of people who were pulled through their chimney. While investigating, Sam learns that they are dealing with an Anti-Santa, a demon that has roots in pagan lore. When Dean wants to have an old-fashioned Christmas, Sam has flashbacks to a Christmas where he waited for his father to come home with one special gift.
One year ago in Seattle, a grandfather arrives to visit his family, including his grandson eager for Christmas the next day. That night, the grandfather dresses up as Santa and then rings sleigh bells. However, he hears a thump on the roof and sees soot drift down the chimney. He looks up to see what’s inside and something grabs him and yanks him up the chimney. The grandson comes down and looks in horror as a bloody boot falls down the chimney...Read the full recap
Sam: Huh, when you sacrifice to Holnacar, guess what he gives you in return?
Dean: Lap dances, hopefully.
Young Dean: First thing you have to know is we have the coolest dad in the world. He's a superhero.
Young Sam: He is?
Young Dean: Yeah. Monsters are real. He's fighting them right now.
Dean: Christmas is Jesus' birthday.
Sam: No, Jesus' birthday was probably in the fall. It was actually the Winter Solstice Festival that was co-opted by the church and renamed Christmas. But I mean the Yule log, the tree, even Santa's red suit, that's all remnants of Pagan worship.
Dean: How do you know that? You gonna tell me next...the Easter Bunny's Jewish?
Dean: Wreaths, huh? Sure you didn't want to ask her about her shoes? I saw some nice handbags in the foyer.
Sam: He punishes the wicked.
Dean: By hauling their asses up the chimney.
Sam: For starters, yeah.
Elf: Welcome to Santa's Court. Can I escort your child to Santa?
Dean: No. Uh, but, actually, my brother here, it's been a lifelong dream of his.
Elf: Uhh, sorry... no kids over twelve?
Sam: No, he's just kidding. We only came here to watch.
Sam: Ahh, I didn't mean that we came here to... you... thanks a lot, Dean. Thanks for that.
