Pat disagreed with the rating and said:
Helena and Ester talk briefly of how they've spent 43 Christmas seasons together.

Vega and Ester discuss how they do not have appetites and that they are uneasy and that it is inappropriate for everyone to be seated together at one table.

Emma mentions to Emelie how now that Emelie is back everything will be good again.

When Maj comes to talk to Helena, first they talk about how Maj wouldn't go on the boat ride because she is pregnant, and then they talk about the children and how Maj is worried about them.

Henrietta and Emelie discuss the children's behaviour and discipline. As do Blenda and Emelie.

At the end Emelie and Helena first talk about how May and Petra want to move to Stockholm. Then Emelie tells Helena about how she wants the two of them to act in a new play. Finally, they discuss how now they are the ones in charge.

I agree with all of Pat's comments.
On top of that:
Helena asks Vega why she is grumpy. Vega denies several times. Helena insits she is, "as always on Christmas eve".

Vega asks Fanny (and Alexander) if they 'ld like to have have a puppy, and suggests it can live with the maids. "Can it live here?! How great!" Fanny says. Vega affirms.
