Can you name the celebrities hosting these Christmas specials back in the day?

Try to name all these crooners, country singers and comedians!

The 1970s were a golden age for Christmas specials. Each network wrapped up comedians, crooners, country singers and pop stars to host holiday variety shows. There were jokes, mistletoe, a little dancing and a whole lot of singing. 

But do you remember the celebrities who were ho-ho-hosting these jolly broadcasts? Below, you will find some images from classic network television Christmas specials. They mostly come from the '70s, but there are some from the '60s and '80s, too. We've also included a few TV movies and sitcom reunions. Try not to Scrooge it up! Good luck!
