Frankie has had enough of schlepping out the Christmas decorations and trying to make the perfect holiday for her family – who she feels doesn't appreciate all that she does for them – and decides to kick back on the couch and have a minimalist Christmas this year. Meanwhile, due to Sue's allergy to real Christmas trees, Mike attempts to purchase an artificial one and ends up not getting what he paid for; Axl puts Boss Co. back into business for the holidays as "Tree Wise Men" but gets into such a heated argument with Sean (recurring guest star Beau Wirick) over a misfit toy that the two can't seem to work together; and Brick becomes fascinated by a Christmas letter the family has received and attempts to write one on his own outlining the past year of the Hecks. watch

Holiday Preview: Heck the Halls with The Middle's Festive Family

Frankie Heck is not going to let the pinch steal Christmas.

The Middle's stretched-thin, harried mother (played by Patricia Heaton) has a scant $20 to spend on gifts for her three kids this year. Ever the problem solver, she cracks to her unflappable quarry-manager husband Mike (Neil Flynn): "I'll fake my own death!" This way, she says, when she appears very much alive on Christmas morning, her children will be so happy they won't care that there aren't any presents.
