This episode was awesome, and not just in the
awe thats so sweet type of awesome.
There is one error however.
A 1932S silver half dollar is worth much more than $100!
here are the price ranges as of last year, silver has gone
up quite a bit in the past year.
F-12 (hair lines around Washington's ear visible. tiny
Feathers on Eagle's Breast visible.= $200
VF-20 (Most hair details visible, wing feathers clear.) =
EF-40 (Hair lines sharp, wear spots confined to top of
Eagle's legs and center of breast) = 300
AU-50 = 320
MS-60 (No trace of Wear, but many contact marks, surface
spotting or faded luster possible) =500
MS-63 (No Trace of wear, Light Blemishes. Attractive mint
MS-65 (only light, scattered contact marks that are not
distracting. Strong luster, good eye-appeal.) $2,500!!!!

Fantastic finish to what for me would have
been a ho-hum album. I am originally from San Antonio,
Texas, so the elements of Los Posadas and tamales make me
homesick. My Swedish husband always ask me to make tamales,
and I tell him you have to be born into the right family for
that. I was not. LOL Seems back to her old self rather then
the 'mature' version which I think I like less and Eugene is
hilarious with all his gadgets. This episode is a reason
alone to buy the album until it comes out on a Christmas
album of it's own.
Well Done! Feliz Navidad!
Review by Bob (Town of
I'm not going to go too in-depth on this
Connie is her usual obnoxious self. I hate to say it that
way, but she hasn't done anything in quite some time to get
me to like her, and this episode completely failed to change
anything in that regard. At least she didn't make any inane
jokes at someone else's expense this time, but she just
doesn't impress or especially interest me anymore. Maybe
it's her voice; Katie Leigh just sounds much more harsh and
sharp than she used to.
Emily Jones seems more annoying in this episode as well. I'm
not sure what it is, but her voice grates on me like it
hasn't in any previous appearance.
On the bright side, Grandma was overall well-written.
Matthew was genuinely interesting, in contrast with most of
the rest of the child characters. Mrs. Parker seems to have
some real chemistry with her 'mother' going; their scenes
are some of the more believable ones. Eugene was pretty
good, except for the "yawn-inducing" -- that seems out of
character, somehow. Whit was fine, but not exceptional.
The basic premise, "let's make a new tradition", was fine,
but it got pretty unrealistic after they actually signed up
the donkey and started off on that trail.
The game show scene was a bit cheesy. The end of the episode
was all right, although it does seem a bit rigged that all
the people who won valuable things were people we know.
All in all, a forgettable adventure in Odyssey. It isn't
horrible, but I would rank a lot of other episodes above
Due to ratings inflation, I would rank this 3/5. On a scale
of 0-99, try something like 56/99.

I hate this episode!!
Connie was yelling. So out of character. Eugene...blah.
Emily, ugh not again.
I was expecting another heart warming Christmas Odyssey
special. I was sadly dissapointed. Even though some AIO Cmas
stories have been chaotic, there was still a great lesson.
This one didn't.
It was cheesy,stupid, and just plain awful. Sure there were
a lot of funny lines but that's the only thing that held the
Odyssey is having a hard time getting morals across and now
their holiday stories stink. Thankstaking was 20xs better.
Man, I'm not usually this critical but this ep brought out
the worst in me.
My rating: 2 stars out of 5.

Not my favorite album conclusion. For some
reason I didn't really like this episode all that much. I
thought the plot was kind of pointless, and it isn't nearly
as interesting as some of the older Christmas stories. I've
liked a lot of the episodes on album 52, but this one just
didn't seem as interesting or realistic or something. Oh
well, still good enough that it was better than most of
to 2010 Episodes
