Sam and Dean follow the trail of an Anti-Claus when victims are apparently pulled up the chimney never to be seen again. After a lead goes nowhere, the Winchesters learn the Anti-Claus in in fact a pair of old pagan gods who have assimilated into society and have found a new way of getting their yearly sacrifices. A flashback to Christmas Eve 1991 reveals how Sam found out for the first time what their father really did and where Dean got his gold amulet. Written by

From his recording of "White Christmas" in 1942 to his duet with David Bowie of "Little Drummer Boy" and "Peace on Earth" in 1977, and his movies Holiday Inn and White Christmas, in addition to his annual televised Christmas Specials, Bing Crosby is an American Christmas icon.
