Uncle Barky's Countdown to Christmas -- Episode 8

@unclebarkycom on Twitter
Ricky Nelson, at the height of his heartthrob-iness, very nicely sings “The Christmas Song” to his wife Kristin, brother Dave and their real-life kids. Then Ozzie and Harriet pop in at the end to wish everyone a merry Christmas.

Nelson died on New Year’s Eve, 1985, when his private plane crashed en route to a New Year’s Eve performance in Dallas. He was only 45, but it seemed as though he’d been in TV homes forever via the long-running Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet.
