In the first teaser trailer for Virgin River season 5 part 2, the events of the two holiday episodes are teased, and it’s exactly how you would expect Christmas in Virgin River to go. Keeping in tradition with quirky town customs, there’s a Christmas tree decorating competition. Before the episodes are released, it’s time to place bets on who wins!

Elsewhere in the pair of special episodes, Mel starts the search for her biological father in Virgin River, with new information in the trailer revealing that the man suspected to be her father still lives in the town. Lizzie worries about whether she’ll be a good mother, and Charmaine seemingly finally gives birth to her twins with a little help from Mel.

Considering season 5 episode 10 ended with a number of cliffhangers, there’s so much more to discover in the pair of holiday episodes. After all, Preacher could be in a tricky situation with Kaia following the discovery of the buried body, and according to the part 2 trailer, there are still some lingering feelings between Brie and Brady. It will definitely be a Virgin River holiday to remember.
