O Christmas Dorito!

Steven is throwing the biggest Christmas Eve party and everyone’s invited, including the Homeworld Gems! Unfortunately for Lapis and Jasper, Peridot is more interested in ordering them around to bother caring about their holiday wishes.

Luckily, the Crying Breakfast Friends and Harlem Globetrotters Christmas Carol holiday special gives Steven an idea. Can three holiday spirits — who suspiciously look a lot like Garnet, Amethyst and Pearl — teach Peridot the real meaning of Christmas before it’s too late?
