He calls Ridge to invite him just for a quick carol and a cup of eggnog but Ridge says Rick, Maya and baby are there and they will just stay put. He calls Steffy and she and Liam say the same; they will see him before the New Year. Yet all seem a little forlorn to turn their back on tradition, even Pam and Charlie who are late as they spent time at the food mission. Quinn is happy to see Katie and Bill show up. Katie gives Eric a big hug and even Quinn gives her a nod of okay. Liam comes around and agrees to go to Eric’s.

Ridge wants to know what song they will butcher.

Eric asks them to all gather around the piano…..just as Steffy and Liam arrive. Eric says he is happy to see both of them here. Quinn goes and sits by Eric and even plays the first key as they sing Deck The Halls. Ridge says although they all planned this day separately they are Forrester’s and this is what they do. Steffy agrees it would not be the same without Pam and Charlie’s cooking and Eric’s playing the piano and singing, thanks for keep the tradition alive. Even Liam, Wyatt and Bill enjoy taking selfies.
