Ghosts of Christmases past

The day before Christmas, as loved ones gather for the holiday, is a great time to reflect on what a bunch of gibbering goons you're related to. As you look around on Sunday, feeling the IQ points being sucked right of your brain, turn on TV Land to see how much more enjoyable Christmas would be if you'd been born a TV character.  Starting at 6 p.m with Good Times, the network is airing nothing but Christmas episodes of old TV shows for the next 24 hours. Watch The Brady Bunch, The Andy Griffith Show, Little House On The Prairie, The Jeffersons, Sanford And Son, Green Acres, Cosby and even Gunsmoke (what do you suppose Matt and Miss Kitty did under the mistletoe after the Long Branch closed up for the night?) and brood about what crummy friends and relatives you have in comparison. By Monday morning you'll be so depressed you won't even care about another Christmas of socks and neckties under the tree.
