Every December brings about a slew of holiday-themed TV specials, ranging from concerts to comedy shows to movies.  But who can forget the all-but-lost art of the Christmas variety show, equal parts music, sketch comedy and celebrity cameo?

Among the most memorable were the "Osmond Family Christmas Specials" of the late 70s and early 80s.  Donny and Marie Osmond would both go on to headline on Broadway and in national touring companies of shows such as Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, The King and I and Beauty and the Beast- but here is an unforgettable clip from one of their perennial holiday offerings.
