Episode summary:

Colin loves Christmas. It's his favourite time of the year. He loves everything about it - the food, the telly, the presents... everything. But most of all he loves Santa and he particularly loves being Santa at his children's school. Meanwhile, Howie hates Santa and thinks it's all a waste of time. His marriage has broken down and he won't get to see his four-year-old daughter on Christmas morning. The whole idea of Christmas just makes him feel sad and lonely – and Santa, with his stupid grin, big red coat and 'ho ho ho' just rubs salt in the wound. But this year things are different. This year the school don't need Colin to be Santa for the kids – they're doing a PC-friendly Caribbean Carnival instead. And, at home, his eldest son Leyton is trying to convince Liam that Santa doesn't really exist. This year it's Howie who is dressing up as Santa, first as a last minute replacement in a massive shopping centre grotto and then, as a result of that success, he's asked to represent England at the World Santa Championships in Lithuania. Colin is gutted but manages to tag along as Howie's supporter. But there's a catch: the only way he can go is if he goes as an elf, a girl elf with bells on his shoes.
