Little House on the Prairie Television Series
Season One (1974-1975)

December 25, 1974

The winter holiday is approaching and the members of the Ingalls family go about their holiday shopping in secrecy. Charles, Caroline, and Mary are able to find means to create or purchase gifts. Charles makes a saddle for Laura, and rebuilds some wagon wheels with the intention of buying Caroline a stove she wants. Both Mary and Caroline make Charles the same shirt, but Caroline hides the one she made so not to spoil Mary's surprise. Carrie buys a silver star for the top of the Christmas tree. Laura...well, she comes up with a plan. At Christmas, Caroline is surprised to receive an oven -- presumably from Charles, but, actually, from Laura. We learn that Laura traded her beloved horse, Bunny, to Mr. Oleson in order to buy the oven.
