Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Tensions mount when Mary (Mary Tyler Moore) and her friends are trapped in the newsroom by a sudden November blizzard. Unfortunately, the gang is already at each other's throats, thanks to a series of minor squabbles. In hopes of unruffling everyone's feathers, Mary and Sue Ann (Betty White) decide to hold a Christmas party one month early. Capped by a brilliant burst of non-sentimentality, "Not a Christmas Story" originally aired on November 9, 1974.
