Synopsis:
Shortly before Christmas, a ferocious snowstorm is blowing across the country, meaning that Pettson and his cat Findus cannot leave their little, red wooden house. But there is still so much to do before the big day! The pantry is empty, the Christmas tree hasn‘t even been felled yet, and the presents still need to be made, as well. Fortunately, the next morning the snow is no longer falling so fast, and so the two of them can head out into the woods with their sledge to fetch a fir tree. So it could still be the best Christmas ever! But things take a different turn: Pettersson hurts his foot and can no longer walk. They have to return home without a tree. And rather than going shopping, the old man needs to put his foot up. If only stubborn old Pettersson would accept help! But no, he prefers to spend “the best Christmas ever” in danger ...
