Kusuo gives gifts to children and helps out a boy's family.
Christmas Eve, a child called Taku does not believe in Santa. He hears the doorbell and his parents are certain it is Santa. The kid does not believe it, thinking it is someone asking for donations. He opens the door, acts surprised, and asks for his present. Santa throws the present on top of his head and disappears. Taku is surprised, now certain Santa is real. The Santa turns out to be Kusuo, he wonders how many children are left and why is he stuck doing this.
An hour prior, Kuniharu was going to hand presents to neighborhood kids while dressed as Santa. Unfortunately, just before he was about to leave, he suddenly busts his hip. Kusuo would have turned back time on him, but he remembered that he had already used the power on Kuniharu earlier that day, meaning that he was unable to use it on him again. Desperate, Kuniharu begs Kusuo to go instead of him. Kusuo refuses since he does not want to wear the Santa suit. His mother steps in and volunteers to go. Kusuo has no choice but to spare his 37 year old mother from walking around the neighborhood in a Santa costume.
Back in the present, Kusuo realizes it is about 3 more houses he needs to go to. He believes the process will be quick, only to get stopped by police, them thinking he is a suspicious person. They check the bag where he has the presents and let him go. Kusuo feeling humiliated, decides to travel through the air, not wanting that run in again.
Kusuo heads to the next house, of a young girl. The girl is excited to see Santa and is very insistent that Santa will come through the chimney. Hearing her thoughts, Kusuo goes through the chimney, surprising the father and the girl. Kusuo, covered in dirt and cobwebs, gives her gift. The girl is scared and is slightly disappointed, thanks him for the visit.
Kusuo heads to another house, glad that there is no chimney in the house. The child is scared of Kusuo, his parents not informing him about Santa and that he was coming.
After handing a gift to the terrified boy, Kusuo left for the last house, where Kenta's parents are arguing. The father needed to go to work, while the mother wanted him to stay and be with Kenta. With tears in his eyes, Kenta prays to Santa for his parents to make up so that they could celebrate Christmas together as a family, dumbfounding Kusuo. He uses his powers to solve the problem for the father, and left a gift at the door before leaving. Kenta and his parents discovered the gift, and the father received a call that Santa had helped them clear the problem. Kenta happily thanked "Santa". Kusuo watches overhead, before flying off, writing the words "MERRY CHRISTMAS" in the sky in large, glittering letters.
In an omake page, Kusuo wonders how did he write the letters in the sky.
