Saturday Night Live” embraced the holiday spirit in their last show of the season. Nearly every sketch was seasonally-themed, including host Jeff Bridges’ monologue featuring a charming duet of “Silver Bells”  with Cookie Monster. (Apparently “Cook,” as Bridges called him, fished his Christmas wish: The “Sesame Street” character recently launched a viral video campaign to host the show.) But perhaps the most festive moment came towards the end of the episode with another expert Kardashian parody. This time SNL took aim at sisters Kim, Khloe and Kourtney’s recent holiday card.

Watch below as the three wish their boyfriends a very happy Kwanzaa:

Also returning was Wikileaks “villain” Julian Assange, who had a few words for Time magazine’s Person of the Year, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg:

Besting Samberg’s Digital Short was a promo for an event called the “Crunkmas Karnival” from “DJ Supersoak” and “Lil Blaster”:

Bridges donned an Austin Scarlett-esque wig for an episode-capping sketch about flamboyant gift wrappers in an old West general store:
