's 12 Days of Clips-mas, Day 6: The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour

To help you get into the holiday spirit, for the next 12 days, we'll provide you with one classic holiday TV clip. We've scoured through our archives and your comments on our story in which we asked you to name your favorite holiday episodes, and came up with a list of dazzling, heartwarming, and totally weird holiday clips. And instead of sharing the same ol' episodes we've all seen (don't get us wrong, we're totally down with some Festivus and Holiday Armadillo) we erred on the side of strange and obscure to keep things interesting.

Day 6: The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour

As the Vietnam War raged on, Sonny and Cher brought messages of Peace on Earth and goodwill toward all men, gypsies, tramps, and thieves to American audiences with 1973’s Sonny & Cher Comedy Special. Sure, Cher singing “O Holy Night” will bring tears to your eyes, but you’ll want to wait until the end to catch William Conrad--that’s right! TV’s Cannon--read “Yes, Virginia, there IS a Santa Claus.”

I love Paul Shaffer's impersonation of Cher. I look forward to it every year. Along with Darlene Love and the meatball on top of the Christmas tree.
