In honor of the upcoming episode, J-14 got a chance to talk to cast, and they spilled all the tea on their favorite Holiday memories.
Ruth Righi: “One of my favorite holiday memories are curling up by the fire with my family, watching a Christmas movie, while eating chocolate chip cookies. The holiday season is such a special time of year that brings so much joy to so many people.”
Ava Kolker: “One year my family and I went to Big Bear. It was my first ‘white Christmas!’ I learned to ski and spent a lot of time in the snow. I will never forget that Christmas.”
Jackson Dollinger: I loved writing a letter to Santa and putting cookies, milk, and carrots out for Santa and his reindeer. I remember waking up the next morning and running to the tree to see what Santa brought me. It was always such an exciting moment.”
Christian J. Simon: My favorite holiday memory was when we surprised my grandma with a puppy. It was to celebrate a health battle that she overcame. We named him Champ.”
Viewers can watch their favorite holiday-themed episodes, music specials and more, again and again in the special holiday collection featured in the DisneyNOW app, throughout the month of December.
