TV variety shows are the product of a bygone era, but while we had them, many stars of the big and small screens and even the music world had their own Christmas themed variety special.   They brought us iconic moments like David Bowie and Bing Crosby’s famous duet of “Little Drummer Boy” and a collaboration between John Denver and the Muppets to name a few. These shows now serve as great time capsules, capturing TV history, and the spirit of the holiday season.
