Synopsis

Every holiday season, Pinkie Pie bakes a dessert for Rarity and Rarity makes a holiday outfit for Pinkie Pie. This season, Pinkie Pie has baked a soufflé, but when Pinkie Pie and Sunset Shimmer step outside to deliver the fragile pie, they are immediately confronted with a raging snowball fight between Applejack and her allies and Rainbow Dash and her comrades. Pinkie Pie only has seven minutes to deliver the soufflé before it deflates. In an act of bravery, Sunset Shimmer sacrifices herself so that Pinkie Pie can run across the yard, but Pinkie Pie doesn't make it all the way. Pinkie Pie fears that the pie will fall and, thus, her holiday tradition will end. She's ready to make one last effort to save the tradition and pie when she is surprised by a special someone who has the power to shield her from the snowballs and ensure the tradition is preserved. In "Blizzard or Bust", the Mane 7 make a sleep-deprived decision to create the illusion of a blizzard, hoping to cause Principal Celestia to postpone the toughest exam of the year. In "Saving Pinkie's Pie", to preserve an annual holiday tradition, Pinkie Pie braves an epic snowball fight to deliver a soufflé to Rarity. In "The Cider Louse Fools", Twilight Sparkle attempts to help the Apple Family out-con the Flim Flam Brothers, but will the conned conners get conned? In "Winter Break-in", Sunset Shimmer comes up with elaborate plans for entering the school to retrieve an essential holiday item, but Twilight Sparkle keeps shooting them down. In "Dashing Through the Mall", when Rainbow Dash needs a last-minute present for Fluttershy, she must put her trust in the hands of the only person who can help her… Zephyr Breeze. And in "O' Come All Ye Squashful", Applejack's vision for a holiday card requires awkward, cringe worthy costumes that no one else wants to wear.
