Whoever does the most to help out at the school Christmas party will get to play Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus. Veronica is the odds-on favorite to be Mrs. Santa Claus because she's paying for the band. After Archie is outdone by Reggie in his attempt to get a tree for the party, Jingles returns, offering to use his Brownie magic to help Archie beat Reggie. But everything Jingles tries just makes Archie lose even more humiliatingly.
