Christmas with Carol Burnett — Now on DVD

Guest stars Alan Alda, Sid Caesar, Jonathan Winters, Helen Reddy, and characters like Mrs. Wiggins and Mama and her Family celebrate Christmas with comedy and a lot of heart.

I have one copy to give away! Send me an email at moviemom@moviemom.com with Carol in the subject line and tell me your favorite Carol Burnett performance. Don’t forget your address! (US addresses only). I’ll pick a winner at random on November 20. Good luck!
