Thur. Dec. 25 - 8pm on WKAR-HD 23.1 | WKAR is celebrating the holiday season with a variety of programs, including a special holiday episode of the critically acclaimed British drama Call the Midwife

Back at the Nonnatus House in 1959, the holidays have brought big changes for the midwives and the nuns. Cynthia is invited to join the order as a postulant, and after malpractice is uncovered at the York Lodge, Chummy is offered the permanent position of matron. With the New Year and a new decade approaching, what will the women choose and what will 1960 bring?
