Christmas With The Addams Family
You just had to know that my beloved Addams Family television series would rear its creepy and kooky head at some point during Creepmas.
The Addams Family Christmas episode involved Morticia and Gomez dealing with the dilemma of a troublesome neighbour who had told Wednesday and Pugsley that supernatural beings like witches and Santa Claus didn't exist. In order to restore the children's faith, Uncle Fester agreed to pose as Santa, but when he got stuck in the chimney all the other adults in the household, unbeknownst to each other, donned the red suit and beard in order to save Christmas. The children, naturally, saw through the ruse, but in the meantime the real St. Nick had visited and left gifts for the whole clan.
Despite the sweet Yuletide theme to this episode, it retained its Addams Family essence. When it came to gifts, Wednesday was hoping for a new doll to decapitate, and Pugsley wanted a bow with arrows. The children also assiduously tended to the fireplace with a pair of bellows in order to insure Santa's trip down the chimney was nice and toasty.
