Christmas. Noun, festival of Christ's birth 25th December. Devoted especially to family reunion and merry-making. I'm not usually as excited but I am right now. # They said there'll be snow at Christmas # # They said there'll be peace on earth # # But instead it just kept on raining # # A veil of tears for the virgin birth # # I remember one Christmas morning # # A winter's light and a distant choir # # And the peal of a bell and that Christmas tree smell # # And their eyes full of tinsel and fire # Wow! Christmas tree. Easy steps to a beautiful tree. Fitting pole wrap the 1st row of branches, we've been doing this for about 8 years now. There's a lot of it to remember. There's space. There's space there. Oh. I have the pleasure to present to you all the Norwegian Christmas tree 2012 in Trafalgar Square. Merry Christmas. Whoo! It's not going on. The geese don't know it, but this is their last day on earth. Tomorrow I am going to be getting them oven ready. It's not something I feel great about. But then again, I want to have goose for my Christmas dinner, so I have to do it. Hi, I'm Riley, I'm going to show you my 43rd calendar, I will show you right now. Twenty third. Twenty third I mean. It's 24th. It's 24th. Nothing in there. But have you eaten the chocolate already. Mm-mm. What have you bought mum? Cillit bang. Why? Because she is real good at cleaning, so I just want to make it easier for her. Trying to find the end of this tape is [] impossible. Do you think I should do this. Yes. # He's gone 2000 miles # [You're nice looking better than me.] # Is very far # # The snow is falling down # # It's colder day by day # # I miss you # # The children will sing # # "He'll be back at Christmas time"# Right. Everyone, we're gonna wish your dad a Merry Christmas in Afghanistan. Millie, are you gonna say it first? Hi, dad. Hoping you have a good time out there. Merry Christmas and love you loads, James. Beth? Hi, dad. I just wish you could be here for Christmas and miss you lots and lots. Lots of love, Bethany. Millie? I wish that, I want daddy. Say Merry Christmas. Merry Christmas. Hi, babes, miss and love you loads, wish you could be here for Christmas. Hope you're okay. Keep smiling and we'll see you soon. The kids are going to sing a Christmas song for you. # On the first day of Christmas # # My true love sent to me # # A partridge in a pear tree # So I'm on my way to the station now. This time tomorrow will be nice, sunny Tenerife Say mum, do you mind if I plan going away for Christmas and won't be with you? I just hope you have to nice, warm time. I don't mind my daughter going away for Christmas. I just think while she's young and free, she should make the most of every opportunity she can. Bye, mum. Bye. # On that starry Christmas Eve, Santa came to say... # That's a different one. Daddy! Daddy! Daddy! I missed you. You know how amazing it must have been in those days. That the son of God was birthed here. That very Jesus is coming back again. The same Jesus, not as a baby but as a king. Write it on the greatest white board. # What will go into the Christmas Stocking # # While the clock on the mantelpiece goes tick-tocking? # # Tick-tock, tick-tock # # An orange, a penny # # Some sweets, not too many # # A book and a top # # And a grocery shop # # Come morning you'll wake to the clock's tick-tocking # # And that's what you'll find in the Christmas Stocking # What [] before the Christmas? Mince pie. Mince pie. And he's going to have a bit of a drink, isn't he? What drink? Lemonade. Not milk? Yeah, some milk. Luke, what you made? A cake. And who is it for? Santa. He has to eat it. When? When he comes down the chimney. Has he got anything for the reindeers? Carrots and some water. Why has he got six? 'Cause there's six reindeers. I thought there was eight reindeers. One of them is missing because Rudolph []? Right. That's Rudolph and he's... Maybe you could leave some water in a bowl. Yeah. Like we did with Bonzy. Yeah. So we could do that for the deers. Well, we need [] bowls for all the deers. Well, you get. We don't even need to put out eight bowls. We just put out water, they can share it. Oh, I've dropped Santa's biscuit, pick it up. What else are you gonna do? I'm gonna chill and relax and let Santa come and do all the presents and mommy and daddy... put the biscuit on the plate. Mommy and daddy are gonna go to bed and relax. Is that all we're doing? Yes, it is. So is Santa going to bring you presents, Joel? Yes. But you have to be a good boy. What did mummy tell you? I'm scared that Father Christmas is not coming to my house and not giving any presents. You're scared that Father Christmas is not coming? Why? Fine. I'm a bad girl, I won't get any presents for Christmas. You're not a bad girl You're not a bad girl. I am! Come on, Father Christmas is going to come. Isn't he? I don't know. You can track Santa. He was last spotted in Edinburgh, Scotland, and he's headed for Belfast, Northern Ireland. Wow, look how many gifts he's delivered. What time is he gonna be here? We don't know. Nobody knows when he comes. Can't they keep tracking Santa? So you're gonna wake up really early in the morning? Yes. Hopefully. Maybe. Not really. I'm going to wake by 7:00. Wait till she sees that. I'll go to see you and dad and tell you if there's no presents, if there's presents or not. And if there is presents, I'm going to show him. Dad, keep tracking Santa. Samuel's stocking. It's his first Christmas. Goodnight. Goodnight. See you in the morning. And Santa... You first get to sleep. Night-night, Mickie. See you in the morning for Christmas. You're gonna love it. Night-night. Here we are on a very wet Christmas Eve night, going to Midnight Mass, which is exciting because I've not done the Midnight Mass before and also to the sermon which I hope is all right for the good people of Sussex because what I'm exploring is why Mary had to have her baby, well, in a stable amongst the animals, in the animals area of a Jewish home. And I'm suggesting that that might be because a baby was at least conceived and very possibly born out of wedlock, so I think that goes down all right and isn't perceived to be not Christmassy enough, but we're going to try and have a swift half in the pub, the appropriately named Star, so we're following Yonder Star. Yeah. Merry Christmas. Merry Christmas. You sinners and gentlemen. Oh, geese, just go to bed. Oh, stop it now, you're being silly Just go to your birdy beds. I just feel excited I put the geese away and hens away. I was having a little cry. I want to kill the geese as efficiently and as humanely as I possibly can and I'm confident I can do that. I'm just sparing a thought for taking life, I guess. So after three, one, two, three. Merry Christmas! As you can see, it's 25 past 1 in the morning on Christmas day and I can't sleep. My husband and my daughter are both in bed. So what I'm gonna do is I'm going to send some Christmas greetings to some famous people. I mean, the power of internet and Twitter means you can do that, can't you? You can basically speak to anyone you want to. So, that's me. Simon Cowell, Merry Christmas Simon. I'm gonna wish a Merry Christmas to Ant and Dec 'cause I like Ant and Dec Oh We're gonna open it now. It's actually... Let's have a look at what time it is. It's actually like 2 minutes to 6, I'm so excited. I'm just going to open it really. It's Christmas day! I fell asleep and it's Christmas day. Merry Christmas. It's Christmas. Guess who's been to visit? Shannon, Shannon, who's been to visit? Santa. Aren't you excited? # All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth # # My two front teeth, my two front teeth # # Gee, if I could only have my two front teeth # # Then I could wish you, Merry Christmas # # It seems so long since I could say # # "Sister Suzy sitting on a thistle" # # Gosh, oh gee # # How happy I'd be # # If I could only "whistle" # He's drunk the milk, eaten the mince pie and Rudolph has eaten the carrot. That sounds good. Which ones are yours? Yay. I hope it's going to be iPad. An iPad? What you got? Drawing game. A drawing-- It's a stencil set. It's a Disney stencil set. I'll see if this one's iPad. I don't think that one's an iPad. What's Christmas all about? Toys! Oh, dear. # If I could only have two front teeth # # Then I could wish you Merry Christmas # # Christmas # Here we are. You're all right. Here we are. It's okay. Such a relief to get the geese all killed. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. It was actually very simple, very easy. Andrew pulled off a few heads by pulling too hard. You know, just because we wanted to make sure they were dead. Anyway, now the tricky part is all the plucking. And geese are not that big, underneath it's all feathers, so I thought we'd be eating geese soup for [] Christmas but now there's eight meals there. Next year we'll go to supermarket to get these. This is nice. Nice invigorating way to start your day. The only people mad enough to be out today are dog walkers. Not a soul on the beach. They must all be at home unwrapping their presents. Look at that rainbow. Merry Christmas. Oh, look at that. I've been dying to give this to you. Thank you. I think you leave that on because it makes it spray. Oh, thank you, Matt. All Cillit Bang. Isn't that nice? Yeah. It's bigger. Oh, my God. My God. That is Prada. Oh, my God. You spoiled little thing. Oh, my God. Do you like the colour? Did you pick that? Oh, no, no, no, it's just, just some radiator keys! Yeah! Let him do it. Yes. What's in there? Oh, this is a fantastic watch. I hope you're not expecting anything from Will. He hasn't really been in a position to go shopping. Wish I could. I know you wish you could. Best Christmas present I could possibly have is you getting better, getting stronger. It's wonderful to see you soon. Christmas time. Next Christmas, you will be with us. I just found out that I'm not getting a Canon DSLR Christmas. And it's really upsetting me 'cause I really, really wanted it. And I wanted it for so long now, but it's not really about the presents, it's about being with family and celebrating because there's people around the world that probably don't get what I get. So, life goes on, yes, and if my family is happy, then I'm happy. Christmas is good, so yeah. It's always nice. Hurry up. Hurry up. Haven't got all day. It's for people to see. Why are you crying? Smile whilst you can. Wow! Look, everybody, she got it. Didn't think she was gonna get it, did you? Oh, look. Everybody, Camara is speechless. Merry Christmas. What's wrong? It's lovely. I take it you're happy. Feels lovely. Snowing. Merry Christmas. Look at the snow, it's lovely. Merry Christmas. # We wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year # Quick gulp. And what are we drinking? I don't care. I don't know what it's called. Yeah, it's Parisienne. Yeah. Very nice actually. You got one down to three because it's gone down very quickly. When you've had your Parisienne cocktail or two, what you need is a nice, nice drop of scotch to go with it. All right. Cheers, everyone. Merry Christmas. Not too big though. I'm miserable because you just drunk my drink and I have to make myself another one. Not as nice as the one that was made earlier that you drunk both of, but it will do. []. Pushing really hard. # Happy birthday to you # # Happy birthday to you # # Happy birthday dear Doris # # Happy birthday to you # What's that? This is to Aunty Doris. Happy birthday, love, Janice, Pete, Mark, Lynn, Katie. I'm gonna look at those. You are good, yes. Yes. Can we get three cheers for Doris? Hip hip hurray! Hip hip hurray! Hip hip hurray! Well done. That's you. You hold that and I'll hold you. Yes. And if you'll go down, we'll all go down together. Well, that's what does happen, isn't it? It does, yes. Yes. Christmas day here is just a regular day, nothing special it's a Jewish kosher hotel. and the only thing that I can say that was special about this day is that I had two people being really pissed off at the fact that there is no public transport because they thought they're coming to London and it's Christmas and it's going to be so happy and people are gonna celebrate the holiday. What they didn't know is that Christmas is a very quiet day. I was having my coffee and then I had guests coming and they needed their luggage in their room, so I have to do it myself because it's Christmas and my maintenance person is not here. So me, Iris, 34, carrying suitcases for a living. Thank you. And it's not just any suitcase. It's actually the biggest suitcase ever. So we're in the post present. Here's my dad. Hello. What was your favourite present, dad? All of them. Oh, don't be annoying. My new music I have to say. My new music. Enjoys his music. It's always best. What was your best present, grandma? All of them. All of them. Refuses to comment. She got some nice hand towels, though, didn't you? Dan, this is my lovely husband Dan. Hi, love. And what was your best present? I got two. Yeah. One of them is this fabulous jumper that you bought for me. And the other one is that bottle of whiskey down there which will surely be just a bottle with no whiskey in it. We've all had lots of champagne. Let's go and find Pixie, and see what she got. I got some fabulous things including some earrings and makeup, eyelash curlers and other traditionally lame girl things. Hello. Hello. Merry Christmas. Right. Where is Pixie? Pixie, what did you get? What was your best present? Bow and arrow. Say it loud. Bow and arrow. You got a bow and arrow. What else did you get? Barbie graveyard. A Barbie graveyard. Let's see your Barbie graveyard. Nick made this for you, didn't he? You said you wanted one. And motel don't sell Barbie graveyards, so that's that. Christmas lunch is not a difficult meal to prepare but it does require perfect timing. Now to achieve that, I have the traditional Christmas spreadsheet. This ensures that the timing is absolutely perfect and it all comes together at 1 o'clock. If it doesn't all come together at 1 o'clock, it's going to be a total disaster. # Jingle bells, jingle bells # # Jingle all the way # # Oh! What fun it is to ride # # In a one-horse open sleigh # # Jingle bells, jingle bells # # Jingle all the way # # Oh! What fun it is to ride # # In a one-horse open sleigh # So it's midway through Christmas day and we just got a power cut. The turkey is ruined. No phones. Our neighbours have just told us that power outage spans the whole county, so it looks like a lot of people are going to be having barbecue turkey. How is it got then? - Good. - Good? Although I messed up the timing because when I'm using the back, you switched off the timer. switched it off, I'm not sure about the timing anymore. Of course that's ready in 12 minutes. - Is it? - No. We're not eating [] at all. One hour eighty five, that's not right, that's one hour sixty. I can't, I don't know. 2 hours 25, No it won't be ready for another You like carol vorderman don't you? Yeah, the alcohol is gonna really concentrate your mind. Right, there we go. Torture implements. The ritual of the bird. And lift. Should we get a food-loving shot of that? Did you get that? Yeah, we did. The carnivore's paradise. Mmm. Bacon. We did it. So how do you feel about the goose being in the pond a few days ago? Do you mind that we're eating it now? I don't really mind. I didn't really get to know the geese properly anyway. Let's get this started. Let's get this party started. # Oh, come let us adore him # Still picking on the [], mum? This is something healthy. This is how you're healthy. That looks superb. Well, it did all come together at 1 o'clock. Say cheers. Happy Christmas. One, two three, four. While you're brighter looking... What sort of teeth can sing in a high voice? What do you call a dog with a bunch of daisy's on it's head? Why did the crow where a bell? What do you call someone who makes clothes for rabbits? Dresser. Thank god for crackers This will be a really awkward dinner otherwise. Thank you very much, everybody. Good. It's very tasty. It ought to be Don't you keep looking on the negative side, I think it's rather warm. Why don't you put that in the micro, Stuart, if you find it too cold? Sorry, I put a lot of effort in to get everything ready so it's all hot at the same time. That's hot, sweetheart. I apologise to them Okay. So that's it, you apologise and it's done. Here you go. Thank you. # Merry Christmas # # Merry Christmas # # That only comes one time a year # # Merry Christmas, merry Christmas # Merry Christmas, Sam and Tiffany. Merry Christmas, Sam and Tiffany. Merry Christmas. Oh, so you're lighting candle. That's where you went. Merry Christmas, Sam and Tiffany, and Colby and Tubbs and Gary wherever he is. Merry Christmas to you all. Every year we'll be together. Friends, friends and partners lump it or like it. Now carry on. Merry Christmas all friends and partners. Mum. I'll not be here forever. Action. # Deck the halls with boughs of holly # # Fa la la la la, la la la la # # It's the season to be jolly # # Fa la la la la, la la la la # Take two. # To hear sleigh bells in the snow # # May your days be merry and bright # # And may all your Christmases be white # # Be white # And those who have lost loved ones may find this day especially full of memories. That's why it's important at this time of year to reach out beyond our familiar relationships to think of those who are on their own. Christmas day, 2012, I'm spending this Christmas alone due to circumstances. Somebody let me down and I can't get to my brother's family due to flooding in his area. Flooding has beset the country this winter. I spent most of the day editing boxing videos, something I like to do as a hobby. I've selected my TV programs for the evening over a nice glass of wine and I'll sit down and enjoy some TV. This is reality for some people, but it's okay. Merry Christmas. Three little children. For a bat dad Santa, might not have my children but I still got my Lego. Where are my children? Don't know. Me and Mark are going with the hope to find an open bar, More my friend Streets are empty. So sad. Another bar closed. Do you find it like to be a happy holiday, festive holiday? I think it's just an excuse for a break because we get time off. That's all the meaning for me. For other people, you know, families and spending time. Yeah, it's all about family. That's why people are not out here because they are apparently with the family. Okay, there seems to be an option. An open door. There is an open door. There might be an open bar like the only one in East London. There are some people there and we're gonna go and find out how it's like on Christmas day. # Rocking around the Christmas tree # # At the Christmas party hop # # Mistletoe hung where you can see # # Ev'ry couple tries to stop # # Rocking around the Christmas tree # # Let the Christmas Spirit ring # # Later we'll have some pumpkin pie # # And we'll do some carolling # # You will get a sentimental feeling # # When you hear voices singing # # "Let's be jolly, deck the halls with boughs of holly" # # Rocking around the Christmas tree # # Have a happy holiday # This is hot. What's happened? Mustn't do that, children. Wow! Are you drinking? No, he is not drinking, you mustn't drink paraffin. Take your time. Because you don't want it to slide of your face. I love Christmas. Christmas is a waste of a day. For me, it's like, I can't go and see anyone 'cause everyone's at their parent's house. For me it's one... If I live for 70 years, I'll waste 70 days on Christmas. When I was a kid, it was good fun but when you're an adult it's just a boring day, boring day. I disagree with that. Crap telly. I disagree with that. Christmas is what you make it. I have the feeling it's something about Jesus but I don't think it's what Christmas is about. It's about you spending £100 of your money on gifts for other people that they don't want and them spending £100 them on gifts that you don't want either. Exactly. I'd rather spend a £100-- I'll drink to this guy. On something for me that I want and they spend £100 on themselves. Okay. How has Christmas changed since you ladies were younger? Commercial. Too commercial. Too commercial. They forgot that it's Christ's birthday. It's just a matter of -- and now, toys are about 90 quid apiece and 50 quid apiece and these games 30 pounds a piece, too commercial. I mean, in my day, it was a handful of nuts, an apple and block of chocolates. What do you mean what does it mean now? I thought like Christmas is just about presents and food. It's better than it being about some nonsense child of God. Christmas to me is when the whole world stops and it's a magical time when people come together. Just a sham that doesn't last all year around. Christmas message of peace and goodwill, it only lasts a few days then it's gone. I'm on the streets and I know it's hard this time of the year because it's absolutely freezing. But it's nice to come to these churches and get warm and have something to eat and meet people. And God as God, he built the whole universe, it's all, the furthest star, the furthest galaxy. All time he's present with you from the very beginning, the big bang thousands of millions of years ago to the second coming of Jesus, everything they call everything up. It'd be nice to have Christmas dinner. Thank you. You trust in the Lord and keep your vows. Excellent. That to live along well. # It's the most wonderful time of the year # # With the kids jingle belling # # And everyone telling you be of good cheer # # It's the most wonderful time of the year # Another one worn out after Christmas. Night-night, Izzy. Look here. Oh, he's beautiful. Yes, see? Best Christmas present. I told you could do it. # It's the hap-happiest season of all # # With those holiday greetings and gay happy meetings # # When friends come to call # # It's the hap-happiest season of all # Who wants to take Santa off the top? Me! Can you reach it? [] let's see what you're doing here. Daddy, I'm really happy. You're really happy? Why? Is what? So disappointing.

You're a pretty little thing. (somber music) - Please bring her home. (knocking) Oh my goodness! - I found her. - You found her! Oh, come here. - Here's your doodle. - Bring her in, come in, come in. Do you want some coffee? - Yeah, I'll take some coffee. - Come on. (gentle music) Do you take cream or sugar? - No, I'll pass. - Here you go. (gentle music) How did you find her? - She was just running through the yard. I was taking the trash out, and thought I'd bring her back to you. - Oh, I was so panicked. I was looking everywhere. I was so worried someone had picked her up. - She didn't bite me, but she gave me several kisses. - I'm glad she just ran to you. - And my daughter likes her, so she wanted to keep her. I told her we had to give her back. - [Hazel] She doesn't sound too happy about you bringing her home. (dog barking) - Yeah, it doesn't sound like she's too happy. Maybe I can take her back. - She's quite the little cutie. (chuckles) - Wow, that's some of the best coffee I've had in a long time. - [Hazel] Thanks, I can't take credit for the Keurig cup. - What are you doing for Christmas? - We're not going anywhere this Christmas. Just me and my daughter. - You're welcome to come here for dinner. I usually make a ham, but I never could eat it all. It would be nice to have someone to share it with. - Oh wow, that's my daughter's favorite. I always try to get her some ham for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Maybe I'll take you up on the offer. - Better than being alone. - Well actually, I gotta check with her first. She gets kinda emotional when it comes to the holidays. - [Hazel] I understand. - If she agrees, we'll be there. Where is your family? - [Hazel] Oh, they live out of state. Just you and the doodle, huh? - [Hazel] Yeah. - Got a nice place here. - [Hazel] Thank you. - Maybe we can make it. Well, I better get going, I have my daughter waiting for me. I gotta take her out for a daddy-daughter night. Gonna go grab some dinner. - [Hazel] Oh, that sounds nice. - But yeah, I'll get with her, and I'll let you know about dinner. - [Hazel] Maple! Maple! - Which one you think will be better? - (chuckles) That one. (melancholy music) - Took the tag off of it. Now mine. - Feels so much nicer, thank you. (phone ringing) - Hello, Jenna? Thank you so much for the puppy. I can't tell you how much joy she's brought to me this year. It means so much. I hope you're doing well with your family. I invited the neighbors over for dinner tomorrow. I'm hopin' they're gonna come. Yes, I'm very excited. I'm making a ham and apple pie and pumpkin pie and all the fixin's. Yeah.

(somber music) - Why don't you wanna go? (sniffs) - I don't want another mom, 'cause what if she leaves me again? - It wasn't your fault, okay? It was my fault. There's nothing wrong with you. Your mother still loves you, I love you, God loves you. Nobody would ever leave a girl like you. She left me, not you. It was my fault. (sniffs) You're always good enough. I wasn't good enough. You're too special for anyone to leave you. I'm not trying to replace your mom. But God has a plan for us. I'm trying to give you a good friend, not replace your mom. Okay? Well, we don't have to go. Just me and you, kiddo. And God watching over us, here with us, comforting both of us. Love you. (melancholy music) - [Kellie] Dear Daddy. I love you, and I want you to be happy. I think you would be better off with Hazel. So I'm leaving, and I won't be back. - Kellie! Kellie! - [Hazel] Ready to go on your walk, Maple? (knocking) Who could that be? Who's that? - Have you seen Kellie? - [Hazel] No, I haven't. - She left this letter. She said she wasn't coming back. - [Hazel] What? - I need your help finding her. - [Hazel] We were just coming out for a walk. - I have to find her. - I'll help you look. Maple! (somber music) (suspenseful music) (growling) (somber music) You know, this place reminds me a lot like the manger. - Where Jesus was born? - Yeah. The most beautiful Christmas story that was ever told. When I was a little girl, I didn't have either of my parents. - Poor you. - I didn't have a mom or a dad. - Why? - They left me, too. But what I learned was that God was the only father I needed. He helped me understand what true love was. That he could love me, and it would be enough. And you still have your father, and he loves you, just like God loves us. You're a very special girl. It would be a shame if you ran away, when so many people love you. It's a hard time for kids at Christmas, when you don't have your parents. I know your mom ran away, but you still have your father, and he loves you so much, just like God loves us. He really shows a wonderful example of God's love, and you're so blessed to have him. He is so sad without you. I hope that you'll consider coming home. And he will just be heartbroken if you don't come home. Here, I'll take her. Maple found you, you know, because she loves you, too. She missed you. We all want you to come home. - I guess I can see why my dad likes you. - What do you mean, he said that? - No, I'm almost 10 years old, so I know things. (laughs) - It's too cold to be out here, especially on Christmas, when so many people love you. - You're right. Guess you're not so bad to have as a friend. - Why don't we head home? Your dad is awfully worried. ♪ Only your love ♪ (uplifting music) ♪ Can heal me forever ♪ ♪ Only your love ♪ ♪ Can heal me forever ♪ ♪ Your love turns water into wine ♪ ♪ I am yours beloved ♪ ♪ And hallelujah, you are mine ♪ - [Narrator] Paul continued having coffee with Hazel day after day, until he finally asked Kellie for permission to marry her. It was a very enthusiastic yes from both of them. After Hazel was married, the orphanage finally allowed her to adopt, and their first pick was Rachel. They were so happy growing as a family that they even fostered another girl, Diane. They're planning to make her adoption official this Christmas. God's plan was falling perfectly into place, just like fresh Christmas snow. It's funny how he chose to use a sweet little doodle to tie it all together.
