Celebrate Togetherness with the Families on ‘B&B’ This Christmas

CBS’ “The Bold and the Beautiful” is bringing the Forresters, Logans, Avants and Spencers together for a Christmas celebration for the ages beginning with Christmas Eve at the Forrester Estate.

As the families celebrate Kelly’s first Christmas, Hope (Annika Noelle) and Liam (Scott Clifton) reveal the name they plan to give their daughter. Meanwhile, the Logan sisters, Brooke, Katie and Donna (Katherine Kelly Lang, Heather Tom, Jennifer Gareis), step in and save Pam (Alley Mills) and Charlie’s (Dick Christie) Christmas dinner.

Look for Xander (Adain Bradley) to carry on a Forrester tradition, and Eric (John McCook) to remind every one of the true meaning of Christmas while Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) requests each person expresses their blessings.

The Christmas-themed episode of “The Bold and the Beautiful” airs Monday, December 24 on CBS. Check local listings.
