In its continuing effort to provide fans with classic episodes of “General Hospital” during periods in which a repeat is expected, ABC announced today that it’ll re-broadcast episode #10945 (O.A.D. December 23, 2005) on Christmas Eve, December 24.

In the episode, look for Courtney (Alicia Leigh Willis) and Jax (Ingo Rademacher) to bond over their baby just as Nikolas (Tyler Christopher) calls from overseas to check on things; Carly (Laura Wright) to initially blame Emily (Natalia Livingston) for being the reason she’s in Rose Lawn over the Christmas holiday; Alan (Stuart Damon) reading the annual Christmas story at General Hospital before Noah Drake (Rick Springfield), dressed as Santa, begins handing out presents to the children while Patrick (Jason Thompson) wisely concludes Noah’s inebriation.

A montage set to the song “Do You See What I See?” concludes the episode with several couples sharing an intimate kiss including Dillon (Scott Clifton) and Georgie (Lindze Letherman), Maxie (Kirsten Storms) and Jesse (Matt Marraccini), and Ric (Rick Hearst) and Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn).

Memorable Moment: Audrey (Rachel Ames) hangs a photo of Lila Quartermaine (Anna Lee) next to a picture of her deceased husband, Steve (John Beradino), while Edward (John Ingle) looks on with a smile.

“General Hospital” is fully pre-empted on Christmas Day, December 25 as ABC will be airing sports programming in its place. The series will return with originals on Wednesday, December 26.
