Episode Synopsis

On Christmas Eve, two kids tiptoe downstairs to catch a glimpse of Santa. A twisted tale for adults only.

Plot

In a small house in the suburbs on Christmas Eve, the home's two resident children, siblings Leah and Billy, are awoken to the sounds of movement and rustling downstairs. Believing it to be Santa Claus, they sneak downstairs to get a glimpse of the jolly man in red. In the living room, the children see the shadow of a figure looming behind the Christmas Tree that initially takes the shape of Santa, before taking on a more monstrous form. To the children's utter horror, the figure is revealed to be a large, grotesque monster with no eyes resembling a red sack with a vestigial pair of hindlimbs, a longer pair of insect-like forelimbs, and a mouth full of razor sharp teeth with a pair of hands protruding from the edges in a mandible-like fashion.

Using a tentacle-like appendage from its mouth, the creature consumes the milk and cookies the children left for Santa, and begins inspecting the tree. The children attempt to sneak out, but unwittingly alert the creature to their presence. The monster seems to approach the children threateningly, cornering them against a wall, before it addresses Leah by name in a raspy-sounding voice. It proclaims her to be "good" and then regurgitates a neatly wrapped Christmas present, which it gives to Leah. It repeats the same gesture toward Billy, as well as a friendly pat on the head. The creature then leaves the stupefied children and disappears up the chimney, with the fireplace spontaneously igniting upon its departure.

Leah and Billy return to bed. Shaken from the encounter, they are left staring up at the ceiling, wondering what would have happened had the creature deemed them "bad".
