“So beautiful.”

In light of the holiday, in this week’s Throwback Thursday poll Soaps.com is revisiting Christmas Day on “The Young and the Restless” in 2003 when JT Hellstrom gave Colleen Carlton a very special present…

Many in Genoa City will be exchanging gifts this holiday season. Years ago, JT gave his girlfriend Colleen one she couldn’t stop admiring. Friends and family gathered at Gina’s restaurant for Christmas dinner, to include an evening of giving thanks and being with loved ones. While the adults toasted with drinks, JT gave Colleen a Christmas gift – one she repeatedly throughout the evening kept checking to make sure was still in its place.

Colleen continued to express her thanks and commented on how beautiful JT’s gift was. However, she had a hard time dealing with the fact that JT had pawned his guitar in order to pay for it, even though their friend Sierra Hoffman had arranged for his guitar to be returned to JT as a gift from Santa.

Last week’s poll answer: Nick Newman’s explanation for leaving boarding school was, “I got a few signatures, cut a few corners.”
