It's the Christmas season, and those at the Shady Rest, among others, are decorating the Cannonball in preparation for their annual caroling and gift delivery runs. Their plans are placed into jeopardy with the arrival of Homer Bedloe, who states that what they are doing is against railroad policy. As such, he won't allow it. Since it's the Christmas season, Kate hopes that Bedloe will have some heart, and she tries to use her best Christmas spirit in treating Bedloe with kindness to change his mind. Only one person may be able to make Bedloe change his mind, but not without some bah-humbug grumbling from Bedloe.
