Smurf the halls with boughs of holly

Fa la la la la la la la la!

'Tis the season to be jolly

Fa la la la la la la la la!

Don we now our white apparel

Fa la la la la la la la la!

Smurf the ancient Yuletide carol

Fa la la la la la la '3444.

What in the blue blazes?

Grouchy's house is as bare

as a Smurling's bottom.

Oh, my-

Grouchy, what's wrong?

Oh, you mean other than

being bothered by carolers,

who aren't even in tune, by the way.

- What's gotten into him?

- What do you mean?

He's always... Grouchy.

Yeah, but not at the holidays.

Yeah. You always decorate for the holidays.

I hate decorations.

Okay. But you're still coming

to the big party tonight, right?

Every Smurf helps decorate the tree.

You call that puny twig a tree?

Count me out.

But we always decorate as a family.

Yeah. And you always put the Mar

on top of the tree.

He's rlght, Grouchy.

That very Important task belongs to you.

You know what, I hate tasks.

I hate stars, mistletoe,

candy canes, stockings, and fruitcake.

I hate Christmas.

How can someone hate fruitcake?

It's delicious.

Oh, Papa, you need to do something.

It just won't be the same

if we can't all celebrate together.

I have an idea.

A dash of nutmeg, a touch of holly.

What exactly is this potion, Papa?

The Christmas spirit, designed to show him

the true meaning of the holiday.

And now the final ingredient,

essence of smurfberry.

Fa la la la la la la la lame!

How do you smurf a hall anyway?

I hate warm smurfberry nog.

But I also hate being thirsty.

I suddenly feel sleep...

Who turned out the lights?


My stomach is looking flat.

What's up there?

I got a blue belt in smurf-fu

and I'm not afraid to use it.

You really should sweep that thing

once In a while.

- Smurfette?

-I'm the Smurf of Christmas past.

Don't you see my smurfy wings?

Oh, my-

I shouldn't have had that second glass

of smurfberry nog.

Oh, go away.

You're just a figment of my indigestion.

No! I'm one of three spirits

that's going to visit you tonight.

It seems that you lost

the true meaning of Christmas.

So our job is to help you find it.

I think I'll pass.

Feel free to use the door on your way out.

Oh, I'm not leaving until I take you

on a magical journey back in time.

Congratulations! Nothing happened.

What the smurf?

I hate mornings.

Except for Christmas morning.

- Hey, It's ma.

-It ls you.

But a you from long, long ago.

Presents, here I come.

Christmas was always the one time of year

when you put your grouchiness aside.

Jingle Smurfs

Jingle all the way!

The past me is so annoying.

Weird, right?

Wait till you see this.

Neat, huh?

Hey, I remember this.

And here you come now.

- Merry Christmas, Grouchy.

- Yeah. Merry Christmas.

Merry Christmas.

The sooner I get to my chair,

the sooner I get to open my presents.

Merry Christmas, Grouchy.

Merry Christmas.

- Merry Christmas, Grouchy.

- Merry Christmas, Grouchy.

Yeah. Merry Christmas.

Merry Christmas, Grouchy.

Yep. Whatever. Merry...

I don't have time for this.


We got to got to our out: now.

Enough I:

Come on. Let's dance.

- I hate dancing.


That's not what it looks like to me.


Gather around, Smurfs.

Gather around, everyone.

Hurry up, Grouchy.

It's time to open your presents.

Oh! This was a long time ago.

Please let me get It. Please let me get It.

Please let me get It.

- Get what?

-What I'd asked for for Christmas.

A hang glider.

It's like a giant paper airplane you can fly in.

I know. It's gonna be the smurf.

And for you.

And for you, and for you.
