"Don't Be a Dickens At Christmas" is the sixth Christmas episode of the FOX animated sitcom Family Guy, produced and aired as the ninth episode of its sixteenth season.

Synopsis

As Peter looks forward to enjoying the holidays at home, he finds that Lois expects him to participate in a number of other activities including visiting a homeless shelter and spending Christmas with her parents. When he complains, she decides to leave him at home alone and takes the kids with her. While watching a Patrick Swayze film, he falls asleep and awakens to find Swayze as his guide in order to help him find his Christmas spirit.

They visit his past where he spent a happy Christmas with his mom and peek in on several of the citizens of Quahog celebrating Christmas in the present. But in Peter's future, he finds he has died and is forced to exist only as an aged Brian's dog farts. He rushes to the Pewterschmidts to be with the family, but joins Patrick in a final dance to close out the episode.
