Are You Being Served - Christmas Crackers
The staff are called to an early morning meeting to decide on ways to boost Christmas sales figures. However, Young Mr. Grace has already decided that all the floor staff will have to wear novelty costumes, something which none of them are too happy about.

Good Neighbors - Silly But It's Fun
Tom and Barbara have put the episode when they were vandalised behind them and are making their own decorations on Christmas eve. Next door Margo has argued with the company delivering all her Christmas trimmings and sent back the van because the Christmas tree was too short. Due to a misunderstanding no replacement arrives and Margo and Jerry are faced with the prospect of no Christmas. Fortunately the Goods have enough Christmas cheer to invite them for party games and home-made crackers,though Margo is specific about which newspaper she wants for her party hat.

To the Manor Born - Christmas Special
Following in family tradition Audrey and Marjory create a crib for the church though it is very crudely put together. Richard, on the other hand, asked by the vicar as lord of the manor, to contribute one, has a far more commercial model. Both parties claim to prefer the other. Come Christmas Audrey and Marjory decline an invitation to the manor but are bored and relieved when Richard and his mother come to them.

'Allo 'Allo! - A Bun in the Oven
Two years have elapsed and it is now September 1943. The airmen have escaped to England and Bertorelli and the Italian troops have withdrawn. Rene's hopes for peace and quiet are, however, dashed as Yvette announces her pregnancy. With the war now seeming to turn against Germany, Von Klinkerhoffen considers assassinating Hitler. Gruber and Von Strohm hope to sell the original painting, sell it and flee to Spain so they get Helga to steal it. To ensure her cut when the sale goes ahead she 'removes' one of the Fallen Madonna's boobies as her insurance.

Last of the Summer Wine - Whoops
With Christmas approaching, the trio decide to invite long-lost friends from the town for a drink at the pub on Christmas Eve.

Keeping up Appearances - A Very Merry Hyacinth
To impress Richard's boss, Hyacinth arranges for him to dress as Santa and pass out gifts at church. Unfortunately, when a delusional Daddy and an intoxicated Richard show up, making a good impression will take nothing less than a Christmas miracle.

Blackadder's - Christmas Carol
Pleasant Ebenezer Blackadder is turned into a cruel and witty miser after seeing visions of his ancestors and descendants.

The Vicar of Dibley - Winter
For Christmas Geraldine plans to stage a Nativity play in front of the church. David will play Herod,showing his kindlier side, and Owen wants to be the King - cue his Elvis Presley impression. Alice and Hugo play Joseph and Mary and,amazingly, learn to speak perfect Hebrew. During the play Alice goes into labour and gives birth,prompting an audience member to declare it is the most realistic Nativity play she ever saw.

Absolutely Fantastic
I am a big fan of British Comedy, and this set of compiled holiday specials is awesome. I have most of the complete series of the comedies on these discs, but it is so much easier to watch the holidays shows without having to keep changing discs.

Review by Vick; Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota USA (Posted on 12/2/2014)
Good. Though would have preferred an episode of Faulty Towers instead of say..Manor Brn
Great I have this opportunity. I wanted to. I did not know how - end of disc 2, Vicar of Dibly, which has such a, satisfying, wonderful ending, and the credits roll along it comes to a skit between the Vicar and the young lady, for a minute or less which seems so gross, profane, obscene even. What in the world was that for ? Leaves such a bad taste. Later when I saw this with my wife, I cut it short as soon as the credits started.... Or am I missing something here ?
