Here is a brief synopsis about the up and coming Christmas special:

Call the Midwife Holiday Special 

In 1958 Poplar, the holidays are not just about the opening of presents, but also about the closing of deep wounds. Although the weather is unseasonably mild for this time of year, the lives of the midwives are anything but calm. Jenny’s relationship with Alec continues to blossom and Shelagh’s (formerly Sister Bernadette) quiet wedding to Dr. Turner is underway.
When a thousand-pound explosive is discovered, the district is evacuated and the Nonnatus House team is quick to take charge to ensure that the community is safe and warm. Always one to keep spirits high, Chummy decides to forge ahead with the Cubs Christmas party. However, just when the community’s holiday spirit is renewed, Poplar faces an outbreak of polio, with the repercussions of the illness affecting the nurses and nuns more than they could have ever imagined.

If you haven't seen Call the Midwife just yet Netflix is currently streaming both Seasons One and Two! If you don't have Netflix you can always invest in the dvd sets that are available as well. And just in case you just can't get enough of these amazing nuns and midwives, you can pick up a copy of Jennifer Worth's books on Amazon.

  1. Yes, indeed: Yay, that Call The Midwife returned! I think it's an amazing series, everthing is perfect in the time they play it etc. Call The Midwife is one of my favorite series... I think you would also like Bomb Girls and Land Girls ;)

  2. That's great to know, thank you for sharing, honey. We're thinking of cutting our cable to save some money in the New Year (we don't watch TV all that often, so it really doesn't make sense to pay for cable at what it costs these days anymore), so hopefully I'll be able find it online or Netflix.

  5. I so enjoy Call the midwife, especially the costumes and lovely knitwear. If you haven't read the books they are well worth it and they differ from the tv program quite considerably.
