It's a big public holiday but our characters have decided that rather than spend the day stuffing their faces, drinking themselves into obviation or spending a quiet day at home, they're going to give up their free time and help out those less fortunate.
The holiday in question varies; in the USA it's likely to be Thanksgiving while in other countries Christmas is going to be the top spot, but the traditional job is normally serving out food in a homeless shelter/soup kitchen. Expect a clash of class
, quirky characters
and for somebody to learn the True Meaning of Christmas

- In Arthur's Perfect Christmas (no relation to Arthur Christmas) we learn that Binky and his family volunteer at the shelter on Christmas. He spends the show giving out practice desserts he's made and getting feedback - like you're supposed to shell pecans before making them into pie.
- Futurama: In the episode "Xmas Story" Bender volunteers at a Liquor Kitchen (for homeless robots) only to pose as a homeless robot himself and drinks all the free booze. In the end he invites some of the robots back to have Christmas dinner with the rest of planet express.
