The cover shows a house on a cold winter night. The house is decorated with Christmas lights and has a snowman in the yard. Emerging from the house is a green ghost wrapped in Christmas lights, the ghost is wearing an ugly Christmas sweater with a tie, and a Santa hat.
Kate Welles just wants the lead role in her school's Christmas play. Her annoying "friend" Courtney is constantly getting in the way of that. But Kate has to get along with her or neither of them will be allowed to take part in the production of The 12 Screams of Christmas.
Even Worse, Kate and Courtney's teacher decides that they need to find a special place to rehearse. A certain house with a lot of history. The kind of place that Kate would normally be pretty frightened to go into. The kind of place that gives new meaning to the term "Christmas Spirit."

- Like Zombie Halloween, this book is divided into 3 parts. In both books, the first part is used to establish events that happened in the past, telling the readers the villain's past.
- This is the 2nd Christmas themed book in the Goosebumps franchise, with the first being More & More & More Tales to Give You Goosebumps.
- While most Goosebumps Most Wanted books feature an introduction from R.L. Stine, this book does not.
- The title of the book is a reference to the Christmas song "The 12 Days of Christmas". There's even a parody of the song sung in the book.
