On “Switched At Birth,” airing Monday, December 8 at 9:00PM ET/PT on ABC Family, the Kennish and Vasquez families prepare to celebrate Christmas in their traditional ways, Bay and Daphne find themselves living each other’s lives as if the switch never happened.
As the holidays approach, Bay bristles at Kathryn’s festive holiday spirit, complete with homemade peanut brittle and Christmas karaoke, while Daphne is frustrated with Regina’s usual tradition of movies and Chinese food for Christmas. Then, after a joint family dinner including “magical” garlic knots, they wake to discover that the switch never happened. In this alternate life, Bay (Katie Leclerc) is an Olympic hopeful and Daphne (Vanessa Marano) is a successful artist with an upcoming exhibit. Is it the Christmas miracle they’ve always wanted? Could they even get back if they tried?
