  • Episode Description
  • It's Christmas time, but the staff are in sour spirits when they have to abstain from hanging decorations to avoid disturbing a visiting therapy group. Chuy, however, dislikes Christmas and has a Dickens of a nightmare when three Christmas spirits haunt him -- Rose (Ghost of Christmas Past), Blanche (Ghost of Christmas Present) and Sophia (Ghost of Christmas Future) show him the err of his ways. Meanwhile, Roland prepares to play Santa and gets some unexpected coaching from Rose.moreless

    Trivia (1)

    • The layout of the hotel is different in this episode than it is in the later episode, "You've Lost That Livin' Feeling." In this episode, the walk-in freezer lies beyond the kitchen's back door (it later appears within the kitchen). Chuy's room is upstairs, but Blanche later talks about the staff quarters that Chuy lives in behind the hotel.
