They go out and buy a Christmas tree - for $35. Then Dad literally throws lights on the house.

The origin of a running gag in the series, in which Mrs. Stillman's Christmas lights are still up many months later, and she would repeatedly ask Andy when he'll help take them down. See more »
How much for that tree without any limbs?
Xmas Tree Salesman:
That's a $35 tree.
What?! You gonna come over and decorate it for us? I'll give you three bucks for it.

Having grown up in Minnesota and seeing Louie do stand up so many times, it was a treat to watch this TV special. We lived a life much like the Andersons and had the same kinds of issues. This was charming and touching and Louie's childhood caricature was much fun. The story involves Louie's dad being pushed into decorating the house of the widow next door and all the problems that occur. Well done and thoughtful.
