This is a hilarious spoof of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. It’s the smash hit sequel to the award-winning musical, Don’t Hug Me. It’s Christmas Eve in Bunyan Bay, Minnesota and cantankerous bar owner Gunner Johnson gets in an argument with his wife, Clara, and tells her he’s skipping Christmas. He storms out of the bar, goes snowmobiling across the lake, falls through the ice, and goes into a coma. He comes back in his dream where he’s visited by folk legend, Sven Yorgensen, who plays the ghost of Christmas past, present, and future and takes Gunner (Scrooge) on a journey similar to that in A Christmas Carol.
