From 1987. Fozzy invites all of his friends to join him at his mother Emily Bear's farm for Christmas, disrupting her plan to vacation in Malibu and rent her home to a couple of boarders.

I missed out on watching it this year, but it's still one of my favorites, it's so *cozy* when they all get together.
