Family Ties Season One Christmas...

Originally airing on December 15, 1982 "A Christmas Story" was the show's first ever Christmas themed episode. A blizzard forces the Keatons to spend Christmas at home instead of going on a ski trip. Elyse's gift to Steven, an album filled with old photos, sparks a series of flashbacks to the birth of their three children. We soon discover that Alex was born in Africa in 1965 as the Keatons were in the country doing work for the Peace Corps. Another flashback sequence reveals the Keatons at the hospital for Jennifer's birth on election day in 1972. When Nixon wins the election we see a very young Alex celebrating through the halls of the hospital. The episode also features Peter Jurassic from Babylon 5 in a guest role. Here it is in its entirety.
