Narrator: "It was cold and snowy in Ponyville, but everyone was jolly. The Christmas holidays were coming. Spike loved this time of year. The stationmasters decorated the stations, and children were making snowmen. But there was one thing Spike didn't like about winter; there was always lots and lots of snow. It piled up very quickly and blocked the path. So Spike worked all day, keeping the paths open.

Thanks to Spike, everything ran on time. All the animals were very pleased. They wanted to thank Spike for all his hard work.

When all the paths were clear, Spike was looking forward to seeing his friends. He had missed them.

As he puffed towards the station, he saw Owlowiscious the Owl talking to Braeburn. They were planning a thank you surprise for Spike."

Spike: "Hello!"

Narrator: "He chuffed."

Owlowiscious: "Remember, Braeburn,"

Narrator: "Said Owlowiscious."

Owlowiscious: "Don't tell Spike about the surprise."

Narrator: "Then Owlowiscious buzzed away, and Braeburn puffed back to his yard. Spike felt left out. He liked surprises.

That afternoon, Spike was puffing along the main path. He saw Pipsqueak waiting in the station. Pipsqueak's wagons were loaded with brightly colored boxes."

Spike: "Are they part of the surprise?"

Narrator: "Spike asked. Pipsqueak was bursting to tell his friend about it. But he raced away so that he wouldn't spoil the surprise. Spike was cross.

Later, Spike had to stop at a signal. As he waited, Rarity arrived. Spike noticed something strange on Rarity's flatbed. It was long and pointy, but it was covered up."

Spike: "Is that part of the surprise?"

Narrator: "He asked."

Rarity: "That,"

Narrator: "Said Rarity."

Rarity: "Is for me to know and you to find out."

Narrator: "And she puffed away."

Spike: "Bother!"

Narrator: "Wheeshed Spike."

Spike: "If they won't tell me,"

Narrator: "Spike huffed."

Spike: "I'll find out myself!"

Narrator: "Spike secretly followed Rarity. He puffed as quietly as he could, and he didn't follow too closely.

Suddenly, Rarity turned down one of the branch routes. Spike raced after her, but just as he got to the branch route, the signalman changed the points. Spike had to go straight ahead."

Spike: "Fire and scales!"

Narrator: "Cried Spike."

Spike: "How will I ever find out what the surprise is?"

Narrator: "That evening, the animals were very excited. They were all talking about Spike's surprise."

Shining Armor: "I can't wait."

Narrator: "Chuffed Shining Armor."

Pipsqueak: "He'll love it!"

Narrator: "Puffed Pipsqueak. But then, Spike arrived."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Shh!"

Narrator: "Said Cranky."

Filthy Rich: "Don't tell Spike!"

Narrator: "Said Filthy Rich. Spike felt more left out than ever. It wasn't fair. Everyone knew what the surprise was, except Spike."

Spike: "Hmph! If they won't tell me, I don't want to know!"

Narrator: "He huffed. Spike walked crossly away. He puffed as far as he could.

At last, it was time to show Spike the surprise. But no one knew where Spike had gone."

Shining Armor: "Please find him, Owlowiscious."

Narrator: "Shining Armor puffed."

Owlowiscious: "I'll do my best."

Narrator: "Said Owlowiscious, and he took to the air.

Spike was in a siding. He was cold and sad. Why was he the only one not to know what the surprise was? If only they would tell him. Then Spike heard a noise. It was coming from the sky. It was Owlowiscious the Owl!"

Owlowiscious: "There you are, old chap!"

Narrator: "He called."

Owlowiscious: "It's time for you to collect the children and to see the surprise."

Spike: "The children?"

Narrator: "Puffed Spike."

Owlowiscious: "Yes."

Narrator: "Said Owlowiscious."

Owlowiscious: "It's a special thank you for keeping the paths clear of snow."

Narrator: "Spike was delighted. Finally, he was going to find out what the surprise was."

Spike: "So I wasn't being left out."

Narrator: "Cried Spike."

Owlowiscious: "Of course not."

Narrator: "Said Owlowiscious."

Owlowiscious: "The children are waiting for you at Sugar Cube Corner."

Narrator: "Spike loved taking children, so he raced away.

Soon he arrived at Sugar Cube Corner. Spike collected the children. He puffed through the snowy countryside. The children were very excited. They all wanted to know what the surprise was. Spike turned down the branch route.

Soon, they arrived at a country village, and there was Spike's surprise. A huge Christmas tree was standing in the village square. Its lights shone and its baubles twinkled. And at the bottom of the tree were lots of presents. There was even some tinsel for Spike."

Spike: "It's the best surprise I've ever had!"

Narrator: "Spike puffed happily."
