Today on General Hospital it is the highly-anticipated “A Christmas Carol” episode featuring Michael Easton as Ebenezer Scrooge, and next, Jane Eliot makes her triumphant return in a guest arc as Tracy Quartermaine as she comes home for the holidays.  But does Tracy have an agenda in the timing of her return, especially with the recent arrival of Brook Lynn back to the family fold?

On The Young and the Restless, families are re-united for the holidays when Fen comes home to Lauren and Michael, and Faith is back on the canvas to be with Sharon and Nick.  Then, in a Christmas surprise, a mysterious little bundle of joy is left on the Newman ranch.  What will Victor and Nikki do with said child and how will it effect the meaning of Christmas for them?

Over at The Bold and the Beautiful, looks like some holiday drama is set to ensue centering around everyone’s continued suspicion of Thomas Forrester and his intent with Hope Logan.   Liam and Brooke are on to him, but will Thomas’ new plan to ingratiated himself to Hope work, or will he get another lump of coal from Santa?

Then on Days of our Lives, looks like just in time for Christmas, the annual Horton tree ornament hanging ritual will get underway and Julie could not be more thrilled.  Meanwhile, Kayla sees Stevano in the disguise as Santa Clause when she is telling all about Christmas and the meaning of it, to the sick children at the hospital.  Will she get a closer glimpse of him and find out what the hell has been going on?

I like Finn, just not with Anna. I love Violet. Not sure that I will watch the GH holiday episode. I would rather see “real” stories, than the drivel we have been subjected to. Please, oh please, get rid of Wes Ramsey. What a failure. Needs his mama bear to land him a job.

DMRR, I wonder if his other mama bear Anna, will help him get out of the very large hole, he’s dug for himself? After he’s gone, I hope Maxie doesn’t find herself pregnant. Oh yes, that little Violet is the cutest, isn’t she, and a good little actor.

Even tho Valentin should had been Scrooge i still liked the episode but with a twist…at the end Scrooge/Finn is reunited with Belle/Anna…Scrooge isnt ever reunited in any of the classic movies with the woman he lost so i thought with an unexpected twist to the story here it does happen!!!

I loved the Christmas Day on Y&R especially with Summer and Mariah sharing their little sister’s return for the holidays.Faith is so pretty and growing up fast. I Would love to see more of her.
On a sour note. Is anyone as sick as I am seeing Phyllis sticking her face in everyone’s business, especially Adam and Chance? It’s obvious that neither man can stand her. It’s embarrassing to watch.
