This article is about the version from the Christmas special. You may be looking for the version from For Your Ice Only.

"Winter Vacation" is a version of the "Phineas and Ferb Theme" for "Phineas and Ferb Christmas Vacation!", the lyrics are changed but melody is nearly the same. The video is a pre-release version which showcased just the song; the lyrics below are for the version shown with the episode.  


Chorus: There are two wondrous weeks for our winter vacation,
Before New Years and school comes to end it.
So the holiday challenge for kids of all nations,
Is finding a good way to spend it...

Phineas: Ahh! Christmas Eve. It was a great idea to climb back into bed this morning. Oh! I almost forgot! Helmets. All set! Let's do this thing.

Bowling for Soup and Chorus: Like maybe...
Bowling for Soup: 'Turning our beds into dual toboggans,
And sliding down a ski jump tower!
Building a snowman the size of Colossus,
Or giving a Yeti a shower!
Chorus: Fa, la, la, la!!

Bowling for Soup: Staging a snowball fight,
With giant catapults,
And snow angels that really fly!
Rocking a Christmas carol,
Wrapping a present,
Or just shoveling snow off the drive!

Phineas : Well, they can't all be fun.

Bowling for Soup: As you can see there's a whole lot of stuff to do before school starts next year,
So stick with us
'Cause Phineas and Ferb are gonna spread some Christmas cheer!
So stick with us
'Cause Phineas and Ferb are gonna spread some Christmas cheer!

Candace : Mom! Phineas and Ferb are making a Christmas special!

(On the extended edition when Ferb makes the last note, Extended Edition appears under Christmas Vacation.)

Background Information

  • In the Christmas Special theme song, Phineas mentions that "they can't all be fun" after the lyric, "Or just shoveling snow off the drive!". Throughout the series, they try to have the greatest time of their lives. In "Rollercoaster", Phineas says, "Boredom is something up with which I will not put!". It should be noted that chronologically, this episode takes place during the winter after the summer in which the series is currently in, so this may foreshadow some character development in Phineas. It's also possible that they are willing to do it if their parents want them to.
  • In the second winter version of the theme song, making flying snow angels and snowball fights are also mentioned.


  • After "Rollercoaster", the main characters' voices were changed, but Phineas's original voice remained intact during the opening.
  • In some scenes the clouds are moving, in others they're not.
  • In the second winter themed song, the days of the December scroll off, and rear at one, but the month remains December..
  • The orientation of Isabella's snow angel is inconsistent between shots, as it  should have been upside-down while airborne, and should not have been on the top of the ball and right-side-up when it hit Buford and Baljeet.
