Season’s Greetings is an hilarious comedy about friends, relatives and children (who are heard but not seen) who get together to celebrate Christmas. Petty and not so petty squabbles break out. Bernard insists on performing his chaotic, incompetent puppet show; Clive, a young writer, arrives late, but is soon embroiled in a midnight love scene that causes pandemonium. Trigger happy Harvey mistakes him for a burglar and shoots him! So, just another typical family Christmas that manages to combine cynicism with humour!
