Peggy Fleming performs a beautifully choreographed ice skating production of "The Christmas Waltz" and the entire cast join together for "It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas" in a scene that recreates the Currier & Ives style Christmases of old. Perry closes the show with his elaborate "Story of Christmas" presentation, singing traditional carols "The First Noel, " "O Come All Ye Faithful" and "Silent Night, " followed by an encore with "O Holy Night."
