from the Ricardos & the Mertzes
The I Love Lucy Christmas Show was first telecast on Christmas Eve, 1956. It is a "flashback" episode, in which the Ricardos and Mertzes decorate a Christmas tree and reflect back on Lucy's shenanigans a few years earlier when she was pregnant. The program ends with all four of them dressing up as Santa Claus -- only to discover that the real Santa has arrived with gifts for Little Ricky.
The I Love Lucy Christmas Show was filmed Wednesday, November 21 -- the day before Thanksgiving. The Arnazes' children, Lucie and Desi Jr., were on hand to watch the fun.
