AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Once a year we visit the Moodys as they come together to share this universally celebrated holiday, stuffed full of all the fun, fights, bad gifts, boring uncles, overbearing in-laws, shocking family secrets and bizarre eccentricities that any family who has experienced the melting pot of Christmas Day will relate to. Because while in theory Christmas is a time for family to share and celebrate, in practice it's often a day spent with relatives you hardly know, where dirty laundry is aired, family rifts resurface, strangers are forced to act like family, and celebratory drinks can disintegrate into drunken rows. As often happens at the Moodys...Each episode takes place on Christmas Day, or during the Christmas period, and 12 months passes between every episode.' (Source: Screen Australia)

'Dan arrives Christmas morning with his confident, precocious new girlfriend, Patience, a model he met through work. Hayden and Cora are back together, and despite Hayden saying last year is 'water under the bridge', they are sorely tested when all four end up stuck in a car en route to visit grandma.'
