"Christmas 1972" is the first Christmas episode of the ABC sitcom The Kids Are Alright, aired in the show's first season.


When Peggy’s successful brother, Tom (guest star Nat Faxon), drops in for Christmas, Mike immediately oozes with jealousy. Thus begins Mike’s one-sided competition with Tom, using his kids as pawns to help. After Tom gives the Clearys an extravagant Christmas gift, pride prevents Mike from taking it – putting him at odds with the rest of the family. Meanwhile, Timmy mistakenly receives $100 from his great-aunt for Christmas and contemplates whether he should do the right thing or keep it. Elsewhere, Eddie forgets to get Wendi a Christmas present and panic sets in.
