We all may think that weíre beautiful and unique snowflakes, but one thing that unites us all is tradition and never is tradition stronger than around Christmas time.

In fact, they're gambling $750 million on that bet.
If youíre a hater, pay special attention. If you are not a hater, you might want to consider watching as well. It might be your only chance to glimpse inside the Franco family Christmas. Spoiler alert: itís filled with warmth and swearing
