    I remember seeing it on Rona Barrett’s show. No wonder it was put on the shelf:It was emotional and shouldn’t belong in a rerun.

    @thewordkeeper Lol….good for you! Keep on spreadin’ the word!

    @wtglb Likewise. I say Merry Christmas as well. I could be at a table full of atheists and i’ll bless my food openly and proudly. A few years ago i was in a market and saw a friend. After some light chatter we parted. I said “Merry Christmas.” She replied “no you mean happy holidays.” I said loudly “no i meant just what i said, Merry Christmas.” Folks stared. I said “that’s right MERRY CHRISTMAS! And i don’t care who doesn’t agree.” Upon leaving i wish i had added “and God Bless you.”

    @ra86226 You know what they say, “Great minds think alike” It is a shame though, the PC Police have made people ashamed to say it, but you know, I go out of my way to say Merry Christmas during the season. I won’t let them take my religion and culture away from me!

    @wtglb haHA. I thought the same thing!

  9. wtglb says:

    Back in the good ol’ days when you could say “Merry Christmas!”

    This episode was a “gift” to “I Love Lucy” viewers since the original baby stories had not been re-run since they were first aired in 1952 and 1953. It aired on CBS at Christmas 1989 and 1990 before going to DVDs. It contained scenes from “Lucy is Enciente,” “Lucy’s Show Biz Swan Song,” and “Lucy Goes to the Hospital.” And I must admit, that last scene–where Lucy and Ricky and Fred and Ethel pull off each other’s beards to discover the real Santa Claus–still leaves me in tears…

  12. PTYSurferGirl says:

    @vividwatch47 is it the original episode or a remake like someone said down below. I have the whole set but haven’t gotten to season 6. i’m doing a marathon at night before going to bed. i love lucy! :)

    @HypnoticSubliminals I do, and I think she’s brilliant! And I wish they showed I Love Lucy on T.V. more often. I’m 14 and I’ve even managed to talk my friends into watching some episodes of it and they like it too!

  14. cubanita1101 says:

    :P they did this episode twice once before little Ricky was born and now its kinda a remake really :)

  15. hispuregarden says:

    This is such a wonderful episode! It should be shown every Christmas season along with Charlie Brown’s Christmas, White Christmas, etc!

  17. missfine257 says:

    I can’t stand Rona Barrett. She always thought she was it. I met her in person one day outside her mother’s Palm Springs condo and she was so rude, a total bitch. Her mother was so nice. I’m glad she is retired now, good riddance.

  19. ChandlerandMonica83 says:

    wow not so little ricky! I haven’t seen the later shows yet..just on Season 3 and 4 right now.

  20. weightfeather1 says:

    I’ve only seen it once, and it was kind of a strange episode.

  21. MsSunidaze says:

    Happily this episode is on the DVD collection. I remember a few years ago they ran a colorized version of this episode.

  22. HypnoticSubliminals says:

    This is sad, because Lucy has slowly disappeared from the air. Many young kids don’t know who she is.

    wanna buy it IN COLOR for $10???

    i had never seen this episode, and i had to wipe the tears away before i could type my response to you.
    if one was lucky enough to see “i love lucy” when it originally ran, then one understands the emotion they brings out when seeing them again for the first time in years.
    they are a direct link to our babyboomer childhood days.
    thank you vivian, bill, desi and of course the fabulous lucy for the best memories a person could have.
