Storyline

50/50 Publishing is hosting an all-inclusive Christmas party. The self-professed queen of Christmas, Julianne, is taking charge to ensure that everything for the party matches the exacting standard of a Giacomelli Christmas. On the flip side, Adam, who attends the party nonetheless, has never had a merry Christmas, and he seems determined not to partake in the traditional Christmas festivities just to please others. In the middle is Erica, who, coming from Jewish background, has never officially celebrated Christmas with her family, but has observed its secular traditions as an adult as they surround western society. Erica will even miss the traditional first night of Hanukkah with her family because of the party. Regardless of Adam's feelings, Erica is determined to show Adam that Christmas, with its associated traditions, can be a happy time.

excellent job casting the kids
23 August 2016 | by RavenGlamDVDCollectorSee all my reviews

While this series has been going on for far too long, overstaying it's welcome, it did surprise me in this episode with the choices made for portraying Erica as a teen (Rachel Marcus) and Samantha as a pre-teen (Alisha Coombs). If only everything about this series had been done this well...

To look at the uncanny resemblance Rachel has to Erin, is to believe they are sisters. Surely the casting department deserves the highest recommendation for this major coup!

The series was hindered from the start by the necessity of Erin Karpluk to have to portray herself at a bit more than half her age, which is an unlikely thing to pull off. I knew at the start that it couldn't work week after week as the seasons progress. By the second season, it was getting to be a problem, and by the third, you're relieved when the story-line shifts and she doesn't have to.

Lookalikes are what was needed from the beginning. BUt I knew that was easier said than done. Or... perhaps not? Look what the casting department found for this episode!

Up next, the 22 year old version?
