Summary Edit

The joy of Christmas is in the air for everyone at Hillman! Everyone but Freddie and Whitley, that is. Freddie's family is away and Whitley's mother prefers being in France with friends over being at home with her daughter. Whitley turns into a Scrooge.

When Freddie suggests they make the best of things and spend the holidays together, Whitley explodes! That night, while Whitley dreams, she is visited by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future. During her journeys with the ghosts, Whitley learns the true meaning of Christmas, or at least how best to keep Dwayne from falling for Freddie! Diahann Carroll special guest stars as Whitley's mother.
