Christmas, the most magical time of the year at the Buckley household is just around the corner, and the Buckley Brothers can’t wait for it to arrive! Matthew, second in command and always under the thumb of his older brother Simon, decides to get his hands on the infamous Christmas Catalog first this year, and keep it from his brothers. That way he can order his toys, destroy the catalog and gain the upper hand on Simon. Matthew waits by the mailbox every day for the catalog to arrive, but his plans to sabotage Simon’s Christmas, are sidetracked when the lovely Juniper Goodman moves in across the street. Matthew and Simon both fall instantly in love with Juniper, creating a war to end all wars between them, as they vie for her affections. To further complicate matters, their mother chooses Finn Hagbart, Matthew’s archenemy, to be the recipient of the Buckley’s annual tradition of giving treats to those less fortunate. But this year, the treat giving, affectionately dubbed the Elving Project, becomes a total nightmare for the Buckley boys, especially Matthew. Forced to endure the constant torture by day, and deliver treats to their enemies at night, is sucking the Christmas spirit right out of the Buckley Brothers. And Matthew decides to do something about it. However, a change of heart happens when Matthew pulls a cruel prank on Finn as payback. Instead of feeling happy when Finn into trouble, Matthew sees his pain, and realizes there could be more to the Hagbarts than meets the eye. As the Buckleys continue with the Elving Project, Matthew finally learns the true meaning of Christmas as he witnesses the delight of the Hagbarts as they receive the simple Christmas treats each night. And inexplicably that Christmas Catalog suddenly is not important to Matthew at all.
