Blair Krank (Julie Gonzalo), the daughter of Luther and Nora Krank (Creator/TimAllen and Creator/JamieLeeCurtis), departs for a Peace Corps assignment in Peru, where she'll be during Christmastime. The Kranks, along with their entire neighborhood, have always made a huge deal of celebrating Christmas with decorations and parties, but after their daughter leaves and they realize they spent over $6,000 last year to celebrate, this year they elect to go on a cruise in the Caribbean instead. They won't be celebrating Christmas this year like they'd always done previously no decorations, no parties, no gifts, no fiberglass snowman on their roof...
