          Holidays from Hell

          December 19, 2003

          Having a hard time getting into the holiday spirit? Dr. Phil explains how you can make the most of the season.

          The Worst Gift Giver
          For Christmas, Alison just wants one thing: a lesson in gift giving for her mother, Joan, who thinks that the moth-eaten blanket and decade-old cologne she gave as gifts were “great.”

          View their story. 


          A Holiday Gift Surprise
          When Robin McGraw and some major stores heard about the used gifts that Alison had received over the years, they decided to surprise Alison and the audience with gifts!

          “My Wife is a Grinch!”
          Johanna says she hates Christmas and refuses to decorate or get into the holiday spirit. Her husband, Mike, fears that their kids will grow up hating the holidays just like their mother.


          Dr. Phil has advice for Johanna. 


          Alone for the Holidays
          Miranda was abandoned by her mother at the age of 2 and spent a lifetime missing her during the holidays. Now that her mom has been located, she asks Dr. Phil how she can prepare for the reunion.

          Dr. Phil has a surprise for them both. 


          A Christmas Wish
          Mike and Jodi don’t know if they should give their 11-year-old daughter the electric guitar she wants for Christmas, fearing she’ll turn into a goth rocker.
