For Dolly Parton, Christmas means being with family.
In 1990, Parton gave the world an inside look at her very large family's Christmas traditions during her TV special, Home For Christmas.
She joins her nieces and nephews in the festively decorated kitchen, where they are making cookies, and a mess! Parton offers some historical trivia about the kitchen they are all baking in.
"You know this is the kitchen my grandma used to make gravy and biscuits in for me when I was your age?" she asks. The kids are all in awe that the house is that old!
The children reveal that they are making a reindeer shaped cookie - a Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer cookie to be exact!
Together, with their spunky Aunt Dolly, the twelve kids sing a fun version of "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer". Parton is enjoying herself so much that she laughs through most of the song!
Halfway through their sing-a-long, Dolly disappears and returns to the kitchen sporting festive reindeer antlers! One of her nieces admired the antlers so much, she asked her Aunt Dolly if she could touch them! Too cute!

Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer
had a very shiny nose.
And if you ever saw him,
you would even say it glows.
All of the other reindeer
used to laugh and call him names.
They never let poor Rudolph
join in any reindeer games.
Then one foggy Christmas Eve
Santa came to say:
"Rudolph with your nose so bright,
won't you guide my sleigh tonight?"
Then all the reindeer loved him
as they shouted out with glee,
Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer,
you'll go down in history!
