Frank and Jesse James wild west ChristmasHoliday Hijinx!  Merriment Mayhem in the city! 
In a dastardly attempt to obtain free ornaments Frank & Jesse James have been disguising themselves as Christmas trees.  This troublesome twosome have been sneaking into homes citywide.  After gaining entrance they sit in the in the living rooms of the unsuspecting townsfolk and wait to be decorated with cowboy ornaments. Then when the family has gone to bed, they make off with their ill-gotten booty. This plan,  as we see it, is only a slight improvement over their earlier costumed caper when they dressed up as stockings in a sorry effort to get free candy canes.  Not surprisingly that plan netted them only coal and a bad case of the grumbles.
Be warned citizens of North Pole West City, these two are still on the loose and oh those crazy James boys, what will they think of next?
