Fred Willard guest-stars as Phil's dad in this holiday episode of Modern Family. That alone has people looking forward to it. As for me? I'm kind of itching to see how Cam and Mitch fare with "Santa". Mall Santas always scared me as a kid, so I'm thinking I'll be able to relate to Lily by the time the episode's over. We'll see.
