After years of being mistreated by Frank during the holiday season when he buys gifts for himself, Dennis and Dee decide to teach him a lesson by contacting his old business partner, Eugene, for help to make the mean-spirited and nihilist Frank see the Christmas spirit of giving, rather than taking. Meanwhile, Mac and Charlie reflect on their childhood Christmases, and realize that they were not as joyous and wonderful as they remembered from Mac remembering being taught how to break into peoples houses to steal their Christmas presents by his career-criminal parents, and Charlie who remembers his single, boozed-out, coked-up mother inviting a slew of "Santas"/clients over at her house.

A Very Sunny Christmas

Christmas is that special time of year when happy and depressed people can both drink together in excess.

Fortunately, the friends in this comedy own a tavern.

The immoral proprietors of a dive bar in Philly, Dennis (Glenn Howerton) and his sister Dee (Kaitlin Olson), exact Dickensian revenge on their corrupt father, Frank (Danny DeVito), who tricks them out of great gifts every year, by having an old business partner of his haunt him.

Meanwhile, the other titleholders, Charlie (Charlie Day) and Mack (Rob McElhenney), reminisce over childhood memories resulting in some shocking revelations about both of their family Christmas traditions.

An extended episode of the cult comedy It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia that's been rebranded a Christmas special, this twisted seasonal treat is just as outrageously hilarious as the long-running series that requires annual viewing while intoxicated.

Besides, without alcohol Christmas would just be some tawdry display of commercialism.
