"Snow Place Like Home."

Not mine.

Not mine. Not mine.

Not mine! Not mine!

Ha ha!
- Ahem!

Aah! Elena!

I was just making sure
all the gifts were, um, secure.

Well, looks like this one

could use a little more securing.

This is true.

Happy almost-Navidad!

You look so beautiful!

Thank you, Abuela.

I wanted to get
in the Navidad spirit.

Found it!

Isa! You're
as bad as Esteban.

This gift's for Cristina.

We're on our way
to her village to drop it off.

But you'll be back
for Nochebuena, right?

Of course, mijita.


Because after everything
that's happened this year,

I just want to be home
for Navidad with my familia.

Hurry back!

We will!

Ooh! Maybe
they changed their mind!

Feliz Navidad!

Oh, hey, Mateo.

Is that you, Naomi?

Yup. These are for you
and the family.

And this one's for Gabe.

Is he back yet?

Oh, um, he's still out there

tracking down
Victor and Carla Delgado.

It seems weird not having him
here for Navidad.

I know.
I miss him, too.

I just hope he's safe...
wherever he is.

They just crossed into Cordoba!

Keep going! Stay focused!

The Delgados are powerful malvagos!

Yes, Captain!
- Yes, Captain!

They're right behind us!

Faster, beasts!

Watch your tone, wizard.
We have names.

And they're after you, not us.


What are you doing,

trying to get us caught?!

On the contrary.
I am saving the day.

What's happening?

Victor conjured a snow storm!

Look out!

I can't see anything!

All right. Take us down.

We'll keep going on foot.

That takes care of them.

I wish I could stay longer,

but my mom just got back
from her mission to Norberg.

And my mother's expecting me home.

We always make a gingerbread
house together on Nochebuena.


What was that?



Where did all this snow come from?

What?! But how will
our abuelos and Isabel

get back to the palace?

And how will we get home?

Hey, we can't let a little hiccup

dampen our holiday spirit.

I say we make the best
of all this snow.


We can have a snowball fight.

Elena! It's
way too cold for that.

My fingers are already frozen.

Well, I know what will
warm you right up!

Ponche navideño!

Well, this smells
like holiday spirit.

Thanks, Elena.

No! I only drink
ponche navideño

with Abuela's tamales.

Which we will make just
as soon as Abuela gets back.

Ohh! But when?
When is she coming back?

Esteban? Primo?

I've got a surprise for you!

I am not interested.

Are you sure?

It's a treasure hunt.

But not just any treasure hunt.

A Navidad treasure hunt.

With presents?

Wait here.

What is taking her so long?!

All right, I hid the presents.

Here's your first clue.

"In this meeting place,
the ends don't meet.

A novel approach
will reveal your treat."

Solving riddles?
But it's my day off!

Ay, no! Impossible!

You are torturing us!

Got it!

A meeting place:

that's the Grand Council Chamber.

The table there is a semi-circle.

The ends don't meet.

Out of my way!



Where is it?
It has to be here!

A novel approach is required.


Like a book?


This reminds me of the candy

my mother and I use to decorate
our gingerbread house!

Which she's probably baking
right now.

By herself.

I bet my dad's making
marziberry cookies.

My favorite.

Well, my abuela
is not making anything.

Especially not my favorite tamales.

Nope. Nope, this is
no time for moping.

Because we are going
to decorate the parlor!

That could be fun.

I guess.

It will be!

What do ya think so far?

So far?
You mean you're not done?

Oh, I'm just getting started.

Hey, that looks like your house.

And there's my mother.

All alone on Nochebuena.

Waiting for her only child.

Esteban! That was my mom!

If I cannot have tamales,

I must eat something
before I faint.

They have returned!

F-F-F-Feliz Navidad, y'all.

It's just you.

Someone needs to put a bit
more feliz in their Navidad.

Princess Elena!

I brought you
a little somethin'-somethin'.

Thanks, Luna.

Want to join us for Nochebuena?


I'd love to, but the snow
is just getting worse.

If I'm gonna make it to
Vallestrella, I gotta go now.

You mind getting the door,
Chancellor Sourpuss?

See ya. Unh!


Luna! Are you okay?!

Do I look okay?


While you're at it,
why don't you make a spell

to stop all this snow?

Why didn't I think of that?!

I agree! Why didn't you?

Get moving!

What is taking so long?!

Ooh! Here's a spell!

Wait a second,
it's a double-hit spell.

I have to bang the tamborita twice.

There's more.

Yes, yes, hit it twice!
Bang-bang, let's go!

Okay, okay!

Unh! Yeow! Unh!

Stop fooling around
and do the spell!

-Cepayák yamanák!

Mateo! You made it worse!

I don't understand.

We need to take shelter.

There's a cave over there!

Whoa! Whoa!

Was your magic spell

supposed to get us caught
in the storm, too?

If you could fly
as fast as you complain,

it wouldn't be a problem, beast!

I told you we have names, wizard.

And we've had enough of you two.


Ha ha! Adiós!

Why'd you have to keep
insulting him like that?

It doesn't matter.

We are not far.

We will walk the rest of the way.


Ay! Papá!


I can't walk.

Then I will walk for both of us.

Papá! Look!

We made it! We're home!


Someone's been living here.

Dad's marziberry cookies

are probably getting colder...

and colder... and colder.

Okay, this calls
for drastic measures.

Everybody up. Up up up!

I've been holding out all day

for my favorite Navidad tradition,

but since the snow's
not letting up...

who wants to make tamales?

Tamales? Without Abuela?

I could use a bite.

It's better than
sitting around moping.

I guess we won't be home
for Navidad after all.

Okay, squad, listen up!

We may be stuck here
for Nochebuena,

but that doesn't mean
we can't celebrate.

So who'd like some sweet buñuelos?

Those are crackers, Captain.

Tastes like a buñuelo to me.

I'll take one.

Me, too.

You know, I swear this water
tastes like ponche navideño.

Smells like Navidad.

Feliz Navidad, Captain.

Feliz Navidad.

Okay, you each know
what you need to do.

So let's make tamales!


What? I wasn't ready yet.

Come on. You can move
quicker than that!

What's the rush, Esteban?

The sooner we cook,
the sooner we eat.

Now give me the twine.

Where is it?



Forget the twine!

No, wait, you need to tie them...


Ay! No!

My twine!


- He did it. -He did it.
- She did it.

You know,
if you think about it, Elena,

it is actually your fault

for allowing unqualified
people to make the tamales.

My fault? I was just trying
to cheer you guys up!

You were?


That's all I've been doing all day.

Coming up with idea after idea
to lift your holiday spirits.

And you didn't even notice.

Well done, everyone, well done!

You ruined Elena's Navidad.

Us? You were the one
making us go too fast.

And you bumped into me!

Yes, because the jaquin tripped me!

Sure, blame the jaquin.

No! This is
all your fault, Esteban.

You've been grouchy all day.

And bossier than ever.

Rushing us to do this
and cook that.

Do you care about anyone
besides yourself?

Yes, I care about my abuelos!

And Isabel!

And I have been worried about them

since the moment the storm hit.

But they just went
to Cristina's village.

You do not understand.

I lost my parents in a storm.

I was a boy, younger than Isabel.

My parents left on a voyage
across the great ocean.

I told them not to go.

I had a bad feeling,
but they would not listen.

There was a sudden blizzard
over the Northern Seas.

Their ship went down.

No one survived.

And now my abuelos
are out there, with Isabel.

They are all the family
I have left.

I'm sorry, Esteban.

That's terrible.

But ya know, you still got
family right here in the palace.

And you haven't been
treating her right.

None of us have.

We owe her an apology.

No. We owe her
much more than that.

"When your friends
have made you blue,

a simple 'sorry' just won't do.

So here's a treasure hunt for you.

On the back
is your first clue."

"I began my path of magic

where my new robe's fit
was tragic."

Mateo got his new robe
when I made him Royal Wizard...

in the Throne Room!

"When it was time for my big bash,

you helped me make a bigger splash.

This is where I learned to dance

and turned
into a fancy-pants."


The Music Room!

"When I was sick and stuck in bed

without the strength
to lift my head,

you brought me soup
from way down here

and made this Chancellor's
symptoms clear."


We cannot let a few little
hiccups dampen our holiday spirit.

So would you do us
the honor, Elena?


Part of the fun
is making them together.


Now they're ready to steam.

I'm sorry about before.

I was so anxious,
I was rushing everyone.

You, Naomi, Mateo.

Yes, you were rushing me!

Well, you do not have to rub it in.

Not with the tamales,
with my spell!

It says here,
on a double-hit spell,

you have to bang the tamborita
after each word.

But I was rushing,

and I think I hit
the drum too fast.



Viva, Mateo!
- Bravo!

Here comes the sun!

You saved Navidad.

Which means you can all
go home to your families.

Y'know, I'm not
in that huge a rush.

And there's no way I'm leaving
until I've had a tamal.

Yeah, I'm not going anywhere soon.

No family should be
apart on Navidad.

Perhaps all your families can
come to the palace to celebrate.

Nothing would make me
happier, cousin.

I've never seen
a storm clear so fast.

All right, we better mount up

and see if we can pick up
Victor and Carla's trail.

It'll be nightfall soon.

We're home!

It's a party!


Abuelo?! Abuela!

Ha ha!

And our very own Navidad angel.


Are those tamales I smell?

Yeah. We were waiting,
but then...

Just the way I taught you!

This calls for a toast!

To Elena. The keeper
of our Navidad spirit.

This calls for more than a toast.
