There’s no game like Turns Out for the holidays, and no matter how wild these stories are, at least one of them is true. On this special holiday bonus episode, we’re talking about holiday specials, from Peanuts to Rankin-Bass and beyond. We also introduce the glacial lightning round, there are holiday songs but no caroling, and a wee bit of the blarney even though it’s not St. Patrick’s Day.
