Christmas has arrived in the Bunker house along with family and friends. But as the children lurk out of sight it’s the adults who let the side down. Cheating at snakes and ladders, fighting over comic books and a bungled infidelity underneath the tree. Season’s Greetings offers a seriously entertaining look at the misery and high jinks of an average family Christmas.
