Mark owns the coffee shop and roasterie in Friday Harbor, Washington State. Maggie Conway – played by Mumford – comes to Friday Harbor as a refugee of sorts from Seattle. Maggie was abandoned at the altar by her husband?to?be; it’s a perfect time for her to achieve her long?held dream of opening a magical toy store in the town where she spent her summers as a girl. Mark has help in raising Holly from his two older brothers. All three uncles have their hearts in the right place, but they’re charmingly inept in their new roles – and they’re not helped by the fact that Holly hasn’t uttered a word since losing her mother. That’s where Maggie comes in: Despite the approach of the busy Christmas retail season, she gives Holly extra attention every time the young girl comes into the welcoming shop. Maggie assumes Mark is “spoken for” during the whole getting?to?know?you dance, because Mark is in a relationship with Shelby, played by Alex Paxton?Beesley.

Charlie Brown plans to celebrate the holiday by curling up with a big book that weighs nearly as much as he does: Tolstoy’s War and Peace. The book’s weight doesn’t stop him from lugging it to Lucy’s pre-party dance class, where he cuts a mean rug with a rollicking Patty. With just 1131 pages to go, Charlie Brown takes another break, this time for the party, and summons the courage to invite his true love, the little red-haired girl. She doesn’t respond, but hapless Chuck shows up anyway – with Tolstoy in tow. Then he settles down with the book – on a porch swing in a snowstorm, and in so doing, misses the evening’s big surprise. In “She’s a Good Skate, Charlie Brown,” disaster strikes as Peppermint Patty heads to her first major ice skating competition with coach Snoopy and faithful companion Marcie by her side. As always, the unassuming Woodstock flies in to save the day.

  • Rebecca

    That episode description for Modern Family on Dec. 5th is for an episode they already aired, so it’s a rerun from last year….thought they were supposed to air a new episode that night? Also, “beginning” in the headline is spelled incorrectly. Sorry to be a downer, lol.

  • rob60990

    it begins tonight with the Grinch & Shrek the Halls.

  • DW

    i’ll be max here. : See they have no faith in revenge since they are having the winter finale this sunday. it will be gone soon. :)

  • Oliver

    A rerun of Modern Family is scheduled for the 5th, the original is scheduled for the 12th. My guess is they’re testing to see how their other comedies perform without MF.

  • rob60990

    @Oliver, it probably has to do with the fact that the MF writers didn’t do a Christmas episode, like last year they didn’t do a Halloween episode and ABC aired the Halloween episode from last year.

  • Avery

    It Must Be the Holidays on ABC!

  • THE OLD MAN

    The Borrowers & Grinch Live adaptation really sound good & overall entire slate looks promising

  • THE OLD MAN

    Hi Rebecca!
    Hi Avery! Where have you been?
