Directed and written by series co-star Victor French, who made a guest appearance, the film was written by Chris Abbott.

    The movie is one of three episodes, that came out in a separately DVD, after the unofficial "last season", season 10.

    While the Wilders and Mr. Edwards are shopping in Mankato, Rose is kidnapped by a woman who cannot have anymore children, prompting a search for the little girl.

    A young orphan boy is a key character in the search. The woman realizes how wrong she was and she and her husband adopt the orphan.

    Meanwhile, Jason starts a Christmas tree delivery service to raise money for gifts, Nancy refuses to help contribute to the Oleson family by getting a tree for Christmas, and Mr. Montague (the Wilder's boarder) learns the meaning of Christmas.
