Family Ties: A Christmas Story

Original Airdate: December 15th 1982

When their ski trip is postponed by a snowstorm, the Keatons sit home by the fire, where Steven and Elyse share memories of their children’s births.

When a blizzard forces the Keatons to spend Christmas at home, Elyse’s gift to Steven – an album filled with fascinating old photos – sparks flashbacks to the birth of their three children.

The Keaton kids are disappointed that the weather has thwarted their weekend on the ski slopes, but the photos soon divert their attention. Former Peace Corps volunteers, Elyse and Steven recall Alex´s birth in Africa. With equal sentiment and humor, they wax nostalgic about Mallory´s delivery by Steven´s childhood friend Dr. “Crazy Larry” Waxman and about the zany misadventures en route to the hospital for ´Jennifer´s premature birth.
