'Glee' Preview: A Very Merry Unaired Christmas
Glee creators are moving up their Christmas episode, which is the mid-season finale. After a break that stretches until February of 2014, Glee will return to its Tuesday at 8:00 p.m. time slot. So get ready to open those gifts early this year, because just like Hanukkah, Christmas Glee is coming early.
In an unusual move, Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) gives a special introduction to this episode. She explains that last year's Glee Christmas was so offensive that FOX executives pulled it off the air. However after fan outcry, some editing and the addition of never-before-seen footage, the "Previously Unaired Christmas" episode is back this year.
Following Sue's grand intro, the kids at McKinley are holding a decorating contest to get into the spirit, but sadly someone is being a grinch and defaces the school's manger scene.
In the meantime back in Manhattan, Rachel (Lea Michele), Kurt (Chris Colfer), and Santana (Naya Rivera) use their talents wisely to land jobs as Santa's elves at a mall. This clan learns about how irritating a crowd of kids can be, so thank goodness they find a so-called angel to restore their Christmas spirit.
