[Eric singing]

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire

Jack Frost nipping at your nose

Christmas carols being sung by a choir and folks dressed up like Eskimos

everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe help to make the season bright

tiny tots with their eyes all aglow will find it hard to sleep tonight

Eric: Come on, come on. Sit down, join me.

Stephanie: A duet?

Eric: Yeah, we used to sing together all the time. Come on, I got the Christmas book out and everything. Come on. Sing with me.

[Stephanie laughs]

Stephanie: You sang, honey. I made the dogs howl.

Eric: That's not true. Now, come on, you have a lovely singing voice.

Stephanie: You're such a terrible liar.

Eric: Well, all right, well, sit down.

[Eric singing]

They know that Santa's on his way

he's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh

and every mother's child is gonna spy to see if reindeer really know how to fly

and so I'm offering this simple phrase to kids from 1 to 92

although it's been said many times, many ways --

[Stephanie joins in singing]

Merry christmas to you

Eric: Merry christmas.

Stephanie: Merry christmas.

Ridge: Ho, ho! Ho-dee-ho-ho!

Stephanie: You made it!

Ridge: Oh, yeah. Merry Christmas, mother.

Stephanie: Merry Christmas, darling.

Eric: So, where are the children?

Brooke: They're out caroling with Rick. They'll be here soon for dinner.

Ridge: Look at this place. You did a great job here.

Stephanie: Thank you.

Brooke: Certainly went all out, didn't you, Stephanie.

Stephanie: Oh, I just think of it as the Santa shrine.

Ridge: Are you still donating your time at the homeless shelter?

Eric: Yes, that's a Forrester tradition.

Stephanie: Well, I think it's really important to -- to be extra specially nice to people at this time of year.

Ridge: Anybody in particular you're referring to?

Stephanie: Well, I have been thinking about Sally. It really just breaks my heart, what she's going through right now.

[Macy on radio]

Have yourself a merry little Christmas let your heart be light

from now on our troubles will be out of sight out of sight

have yourself a merry little Christmas make the yuletide gay

from now on our troubles will be miles away

here we are as in olden days happy golden days of yore

faithful friends who are dear to us gather near to us once more

Stephanie: Merry Christmas, Sam.

Samantha: Oh, thank you. Feels like old home week.

Stephanie: Well, good.

Samantha: Speaking of --

Stephanie: Oh, thank you.

Ridge: Does that mean you're up for a little football later?

Samantha: I don't know how many tackles I could block in these heels.

Stephanie: On that note, let's go dip into the egg nog.

Samantha: Oh, good idea.

Ridge: Hey, you. Do you know you how beautiful you are? Have I told you that lately?

Brooke: Just about a dozen times.

Ridge: People talk about that Christmas spirit -- that's the way I feel every day because of you, Logan.

                        **********************************************************************

Darla: Sal, it's me.

Thorne: Open the door, Sally.

Darla: Maybe it's unlocked.

Have yourself a merry little Christmas night

Darla: Hey, Sal, how you doing?

Sally: Well, as you can see I'm not exactly full of the holiday spirit.

Thorne: Mom's having a few people over, okay? And we would love for you to join us.

Darla: Yeah.

Sally: That's very kind, but I don't think I'd be very good company.

Darla: Please, honey, come on. Please.

Thorne: Come on, you can ride with Darla and me -- and I'll take you back whenever you want.

Sally: Oh, Thorne, I appreciate the offer, I really do, but -- but I just can't.

Darla: We all miss mace, Sal. Wouldn't it be nice to be around people who loved her, too?

Sally: Honey, to be around people who loved her and celebrate the holiday and the Christmas carols and the presents under the tree -- don't you see? It just makes it worse. It just makes me more aware of that empty place have in my heart. But you two, you should go. You should go and have a good time. And Thorne, thank your mother for me, will you?

Thorne: I will.

[Bells jingling]

                        **********************************************************************

[Talking at same time]

Massimo: Good evening. Yes, indeed. Ah, your home looks beautiful. Oh, the tree is gorgeous.

Stephanie: Thank you, Mass. Thank you very much.

Massimo: Eric, Stephanie, thank you for inviting us on this special occasion. I know that we've uh -- had differences in the past, but I think we can put those aside and concentrate on things that really matter, like -- family. So, with that in mind -- buon natale, or as some people say, natale allegro.

[Talking at same time]

Stephanie: Thorne, Darla. Merry christmas.

Thorne: Hey. Hey, mom.

Darla: Stephanie.

Stephanie: Oh! These aren't very happy Christmas faces.

Darla: We just came from Sally's.

Thorne: She's about as low as I've ever seen her.

Stephanie: She just wants to spend the day alone.

Stephanie: Well, I guess I'll just have to go over there and try and change her mind.

Nick: Well, it's actually a little something that I wrote for tonight. It's nice to be in a family.

[Nick singing]

Lay your head and close your eyes let your mind sleep tight

soon your dreams will be beside and all is ours on Christmas night

it's gonna be all right on Christmas night I'm gonna hold your hand so tight in mine

I'll be there I'll be everywhere it's gonna be all right on this Christmas night

so, lay your head and close your eyes let your mind sleep tight

soon your dreams will be beside and all is ours on this Christmas night

Nick: Merry christmas.

[Applause]

                        *********************************************************************

[Macy on radio]

Through the years we all will be together if the fates allow

Stephanie: Macy's right, you know. We will be all together again.

Sally: That is very thoughtful of you, highness, but -- I gotta tell you, I'm just not in the mood for a pep talk.

Stephanie: No pep talk from me. I know I can't take your pain away.

Sally: No, you can't.

Stephanie: You still have a choice.

Sally: You mean I can "choose" to paint a nice smile on my face and ignore the emptiness inside?

Stephanie: To open your heart again.

Sally: I already have opened my heart, Stephanie. And look where it got me.

Stephanie: A lot of people care an awful lot about you, Sal. We all need family to love and care for us. Now, your family isn't going to be here today. So how about you use mine instead?

Sally: I appreciate everything you're trying to do. You're quite a woman, Stephanie Forrester. But I'm afraid this old heart of mine has been broken once too often.

Stephanie: I know you don't want to believe this, but you're not really alone. Bless you, Sal.

                        ***********************************************************************

[All singing]

Deck the halls with boughs of holly

fa la la la la la la la la

'tis the season to be jolly

fa la la la la la la la la

don we now our gay apparel

fa la la la la la la la la

troll the ancient yuletide carol

fa la la la la la la la la

see the blazing yule before us

fa la la la la la la la la

strike the harp and join the chorus

fa la la la la la la la la

[Sally remembering]

Stephanie: I know you don't want to believe this, but you're not alone.

["We wish you a Merry Christmas" plays on music box]

Eric: Sally wouldn't come?

Stephanie: No, I'm afraid not.

Massimo: Well, if she won't come to us, why don't we take Christmas to her?

Stephanie: A lovely idea. Not quite practical. If she wants to be alone, I think we just have to respect that.

Nick: Well, let's open some presents.

Jackie: Oh, Nicky. You sound as excited as when you were a little boy.

Nick: Well, I am a little boy, mother.

[All laugh]

Stephanie: Well, Eric, you be the little boy as well and open up your gift first.

Eric: I'd be glad to.

Nick: Let's start the show, shall we?

Eric: All right.

Stephanie: Right here, this one.

Eric: This one?

Stephanie: Yes. Just lift it straight up.

Eric: Untie the bow?

Stephanie: No, no, no.

Eric: Well, what --

Stephanie: It's a karaoke.

Eric: A karaoke machine? Oh, that's wonderful.

Stephanie: Yes, now you have your own band.

Eric: I love it. Thank you.

Stephanie: You're welcome.

Eric: That's swell.

[Door closes]

Sally: Ho, ho, ho. Merry Christmas. Thanks for inviting me in. I'm telling you, that night out there is not fit for man or beast.

[Everyone laughing]

Stephanie: I'm delighted that you came after all.

Sally: Thank you, Madame. I'm delighted to be here. Of course, I had to take the Santa suit -- and myself -- out of mothballs in order to do it, but here I am.

Darla: Santa, I am so glad you're here. Give us a kiss.

Sally: Hey, listen, honey, what do you think of the getup, huh?

Stephanie: Oh, you make the perfect Santa.

Sally: Is that a compliment? I hope so.

Stephanie: With your big heart? No one could embody the spirit of Santa better than you.

Sally: Ah, listen, speaking of hearts -- I want to tell you how much this one means to me. You have no idea. Thank you.

Stephanie: Sal, you're my gal.

Sally: Oh, thanks, baby.

[Everyone awws]

Eric: Everyone, everyone, if I may. Please, just a moment. It's Christmas time, once again. And we're all here together and that's a -- that's a good thing. It's a very good thing. It's a time for us to stop and share that intangible magic that we call holiday spirit -- Christmas spirit -- embodied in family and friends and tradition, and most of all, love. It's a time of year that we look at each other just a little bit differently. So let's try to carry the spirit of Christmas with us, every day we live. Merry Christmas.

All: Merry Christmas.

Sally: Here, here. That was wonderful, Eric. It was very inspiring. So inspiring, as a matter of fact, that I want to get in on the act myself. I know that's a shock, but --

[Everyone laughs] I see that you've got a new toy over there.

Eric: Oh, you saw this.

Sally: It's a karaoke machine?

Eric: That's exactly what it is.

Sally: Well, I feel inspired enough to hope that there might be a tune on there that I'm familiar with.

Eric: Well, I wouldn't be a bit surprised.

[Sally laughs]

Sally: Glad to see ya.

Eric: Right here, what about this?

Sally: That's it. That's my hit record. What a coinky-dink.

[Sally singing]

You better watch out you better not cry better not pout I'm telling you why

Santa Claus is coming to town

he's making a list and checking it twice gonna find out who's naughty and nice

Santa Claus is coming to town

Sally: Oh, yeah, baby.

[Sally resumes singing]

He sees you when you're sleeping he knows when you're awake

he knows if you've been bad or good better be good for goodness sake

oh, you better watch out you better not cry better not pout I'm telling you why

Santa Claus is coming to town

Sally: Oh, I can hear him now. That old man is on his way, baby. And he is bringing you a bagful of everything you like.

[Applause] Merry Christmas, everybody.

Eric: From our family to yours.

All: Happy holidays.

[Cheers and applause]
