"This show was excellent in every aspect. I was captivated from the opening number and stayed glued to my TV until the closing credits. It was so fun to see the entire Osmond Clan decked out in their holiday finest having such a wholesome and lighthearted good time. I especially enjoyed seeing Debbie, Donny's wife sing a duet with Donny. And the other wives put on a musical extravaganza as well. There was even a guest appearance by the Osmond grandparents. I would recommend this DVD to anyone who wants to really enjoy an old fashioned Christmas special. There is a mixture of traditional Christmas songs, some uptempo numbers, and even some spiritual songs included. A particularly poignant segment included little brother Jimmy singing a song out in the snow. I'd never seen the two lesser-known older brothers before but they were in the middle of everything on this particular show. One of the best Christmas specials I've seen in a long time. It made me wish that I was part of their family. After watching this I'm more convinced than ever that I am the fat Osmond who Mother Osmond abandoned in the hospital only to be adopted by some nice folks here in the Pacific Northwest!"
Osmond Family doing what they do best....

"Christmas with the Osmonds was always a fun event, growing up in the 70s. All these new talk about bringing back the family unit, from Oprah to Jamie Oliver, The Osmond Family unbashfully serves their interpretation of the family to millions around the world, and influenced a whole generation. This episode is a fun participatory program with the entire Osmond family, wives, kids, even Grandmothers. A segment, featuring the Osmond Kitchen was deleted by many stations in Asia, to make room for more advertising. So this show was an "extended" version that fans in Asia saw. This show was significant to Asian fans because it was the first time we saw Donny's wife, Debbie onscreen, and a few months later, some were able to meet her in person as she toured with the family throughout South East Asia. Brings back great memories........."
Fun Holiday Watching for the Whole Family

"This DVD single-handedly saved Thanksgiving this year. Adults found themselves smiling and somewhat surprised by how entertaining the Osmonds really were, and my three year old nephew became an instantaneous fan. He asked several times if we could watch "the snow video" again -- and he seems to like Donny's rendition of "Three Times a Lady" the best. (!?!)"
Cute Amazon, Real cute!

"If you want to go back and remember a time when Christmas still had a soul, then here you go! I actually think the spirit of Christmas was lost by the 80's and if you want to get it back, then you have to work at it a little harder. The first step is to surround yourself with the people and things that take you back to your happiest Christmas memories. Yes, you can actually go back if you try hard enough. Come on people, you only have one life! This dvd has plenty of old fashioned cheese and 70's fashion. You KNOW you wish your family was this tight and had this much fun! Let go and have fun for a change, it's Christmas for Christ's sake!"
The 3rd Donny and Marie Holiday Special.

"This 1978 special is fun to watch if you're a true Osmond fan. I believe it only aired on ABC-TV once. It was Donny and Marie Osmond's third Christmas special that not only features the famed brother and sister duo, but their entire extended familes too, their brothers Alan, Wayne, Jimmy and Merrill along with all their wives and kids, Donny's new wife Debbie, and of course their parents George and Olive Osmond too. The show resembles a set of their winter cottege in the mountains of Ogden, Utah. There are sketches where the brothers happilly sing even when they try to make Christmas meals, but things go apart very silly. Another sketch features Donny and Marie singing on stage at their own home-bulit stage studios in Utah with a live audience, and Santa too, of course. You just can't find these rare specials on TV nowadays, not even on the TV Land cable channel. The magic of DVD's, like this one, are the ones to find if you love 1970's nostalgia. "
