A Very Brady Christmas is a 1988 made-for-TV movie spun off from the television series The Brady Bunch.

Synopsis

Mike and Carol Brady have a savings account which both spouses plan to use to bankroll a vacation for the other; Carol wants to take Mike to Greece while he wants to treat her to a trip to Japan. When they realize their ideas collide, they use the money to try to reunite the entire family for Christmas by paying for airline tickets for their children, grandchildren, and in-laws. However, all of the Brady kids are facing personal obstacles that might keep them from enjoying the festivities. Greg's wife, Nora, is spending Christmas with her family. Peter is sexually involved with his boss, Valerie, and his inferior position and salary is affecting his self-confidence. Bobby has dropped out of college to become a race car driver but has not revealed this to his parents.

Marcia's husband, Wally, was fired from his job at a toy company, Jan is separating from her husband, Phillip, and Cindy is fighting for her independence since she is the youngest and still gets treated like the baby of the family. She is currently a college undergraduate and in an issue similar to Bobby's, she lies to her parents about overwhelming college student issues, when in actuality she plans to go skiing in Aspen with her roommates.

Even their former housekeeper, Alice, is dealing with a serious issue: Her husband, Sam, has recently left her for another woman. Through each child deciding to spend the holiday and eventually opening up about their issues, Mike and Carol are able to help them out. However the Bradys' Christmas is disrupted by Mike when he learns that a ruthless businessman he designed a building for has cut corners and it has resulted in a collapse and trapping of two security guards. He manages to free them, but an aftershock results in him getting trapped in the rubble himself.

In the end, Mike gets out of the debris after Carol and the entire family sings "O Come All Ye Faithful".
