Phineas and Ferb find a new Christmas tree to be used in the annual Danville lighting ceremony.

Book Summary

It's Christmas Eve, and the boys are waiting for the town celebration to begin. But the mayor has bad news: the annual lighting of the Christmas tree has been canceled. The evergreen was destroyed in a freak accident. Phineas and Ferb know what to do now. Candace is overjoyed by what she hears. Isabella, Buford and Baljeet come over to help Phineas and Ferb build the "souped-up, rocket powered, all terrain, evergreen-detecting supersleigh."

They jet off while Phineas hints, "Hey, where's Perry?" Perry goes off into his secret lair and Major Monogram tells him his mission: Dr. Doofenshmirtz has destroyed the tree. Find out what he's up to. Meanwhile, Candace has now caught onto the snow tube attached to the sleigh and is shot off with it. Phineas and Ferb land in the mountains and go searching for a tree. Then a snarling abominable snowman comes out and startles the kids.

Later, Doofenshmirtz traps Perry and tells his plan: to humiliate his brother, Roger, the mayor. He will hurl snow landing on him, thus, embarrassing him. On the flip-side, Ferb tells them the Yeti is nice and they become friends with him. He later directs them to a perfect tree. The Yeti rips the tree out while Isabella replants some seeds for a new one. Meanwhile, a snow ball is hurled across the mountain and is now forming larger, chasing Candace. The snowman hurls the kids on the tree (with Candace holding on for dear life) into Danville. The tree lands in town square and Christmas is saved.

Candace walks over to their mom and complains, "Mom! Did you see? Phineas and Ferb brought that giant tree!" Mom answers, "I think you've been in the cold too long" because she thinks the tree is too big for them to move.

Back on the mountain, Doofenshmirtz discovers his invention has been destroyed. He howls, "Curse you, Perry the Platypus!", triggering an avalanche that carries him down the mountain. Agent P uses a piece of bark to snowboard back to Danville.
