'Switched at Birth' Christmas Episode Premieres Tonight

The Switched at Birth Christmas episode premieres December 8.
An all-new holiday-themed episode ("Yuletide Fortune Tellers") of Switched at Birth, airs Monday, December 8 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC Family.

As the Kennish and Vasquez families prepare to celebrate Christmas in their traditional ways, Bay and Daphne find themselves living each other's lives as if the switch never happened.

With the holidays approaching, Bay bristles at Kathryn's festive holiday spirit, complete with homemade peanut brittle and Christmas karaoke, while Daphne is frustrated with Regina's usual tradition of movies and Chinese food for Christmas. Then, after a joint family dinner including "magical" garlic knots, they wake to discover that the switch never happened. In this alternate life, Bay (Katie Leclerc) is an Olympic hopeful and Daphne (Vanessa Marano) is a successful artist with an upcoming exhibit. Is it the Christmas miracle they’ve always wanted? Could they even get back if they tried?



"Yuletide Fortune Tellers" was written by Terrence Coli & Lizzy Weiss and directed by Michael Grossman.

ABC Family is making its new holiday episodes of Switched at Birth and The Fosters available to viewers early on its authenticated WATCH ABC Family service and VOD platforms from Monday, December 1 through Sunday, December 7.

Moffett as John Kennish; Lea Thompson as Kathryn Kennish; Lucas Grabeel as Toby Kennish; Sean Berdy as Emmett Bledsoe with guest star Marlee Matlin as Melody Bledsoe.
