Storyline

Tom and Barbara have put the episode when they were vandalised behind them and are making their own decorations on Christmas eve. Next door Margo has argued with the company delivering all her Christmas trimmings and sent back the van because the Christmas tree was too short. Due to a misunderstanding no replacement arrives and Margo and Jerry are faced with the prospect of no Christmas. Fortunately the Goods have enough Christmas cheer to invite them for party games and home-made crackers,though Margo is specific about which newspaper she wants for her party hat.

Christmas Special 1977
22 August 2006 | by (Coventry, England) – See all my reviews

Although the series was, as far as the BBC and the cast were concerned, over and done with, The Good Life returned for a one-off Christmas special (or so they all thought) on the 26th December 1977.

Tom and Barbara are all ready and prepared with their homemade newspaper decorations, crackers made from the colour supplements, a yule log with an over-sized robin and balloons that have cost a wopping 15p.

Margo and Jerry however are set to have a very miserable Christmas, as Margo, in a fit of conservatism, sent back her entire Christmas purchases because her tree is six and a quarter inches too short. She has in effect, cut off her festive nose to spite her yuletide face.

Its up to Tom and Barbara to show them what a true Christmas is all about, a Christmas without the trappings of riches, just pure silly unadulterated fun...not to mention a few bottles of the old pea-pod.
