  • At the beginning, Pat is humming the tune to "Good King Wenceslas".
  • This episode features the "Christmas Holiday" song.


  • The frost all over the sorting office has clearly been digitally added in.
  • Pat arrives at Pencaster Station in PAT 4 even though he started out in PAT 1.
  • As Pat flys above the sorting office with the stocking, Ben's mouth is moving even though he is not actually saying anything. His lips are also out of sync when he says "Bye, fly safely."
  • When the children rush over to the window to see Pat arrive at the school, Jess' mouth disappears from Meera's painting.
  • Even though the Santa beard is fake, there are points where it twitches whilst Lauren is wearing it.
