The Young and the Restless (Y&R) has unveiled its holiday promotional photos, giving key insights into the storylines that will unfold over the month to come. Which of these spoilers do you see happening? Check out the photos and cast your vote in our poll below!
Y&R‘s annual Christmas snapshots not only give fans an early look at which characters will be focused on during the holiday season, but also where the party in Genoa City will be happening and what everyone will be wearing.
Since the CBS soap schedules these cast photos amid their frantic taping schedule, the festive images also reveal which actors are working together in upcoming episodes. So, which characters will be spending the holidays together?

First of all, it’s very telling that Lily (Christel Khalil) and Daniel (Michael Graziadei) are snapped together, with the latter’s arm wrapped snugly around the Chancellor-Winters CEO’s waist. Meanwhile, Billy (Jason Thompson) is photographed alone.
Could this mean that Lily and Billy’s fragile romance will totally disintegrate by Christmas? Perhaps Mr. Abbott will prioritize Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) over the holidays, leading Lily to cozy up with Daniel.
Speaking of, Mr. Romalotti is also snapped in another festive photo shoot with his parents, Phyllis (Michelle Stafford) and Danny (Michael Damian). While the elder Romalotti’s return will be much briefer than Daniel’s, this trio will enjoy a warm, drama-free Christmas together.

Another happy couple this Christmas will be Sally (Courtney Hope) and Nick (Joshua Morrow). Although the love triangle between these two and Adam (Mark Grossman) will continue into the new year, Sally and Nick are photographed looking elegantly suave for a night out together.
So, what does this mean for Adam? He’ll spend at least some of Christmas with Chelsea and Connor (Judah Mackey). Judging from a photo of the young half-brothers, it looks like Connor and Johnny (Paxton Mishkind) will also get to bond during their school break.

Chelsea will also spend a good portion of her holiday at Crimson Lights with Chloe (Elizabeth Hendrickson) and Sharon (Sharon Case). This will be Sharon’s first Christmas without her husband, Rey. As such, she’ll have lots of family on hand to keep her spirits raised, as Noah (Rory Gibson), Mariah (Camryn Grimes) and Tessa (Cait Fairbanks) visit the coffeehouse.
When he isn’t with his mother, Noah will hit the town with his girlfriend, Allie, and host a holiday party at The Glam Club. Interestingly, Audra (Zuleyka Silver) is nowhere to be seen in these photos, so hopefully this will be a drama-free holiday for them as well.

Over to the Abbott family, Traci (Beth Maitland), Jack (Peter Bergman) and Ashley (Eileen Davidson) will share some yuletide cheer, while Kyle (Michael Mealor), Summer (Allison Lanier) and Harrison (Kellen Enriquez) spend some quality time together. And before you inquire, no — Summer is not expecting a baby!
Diane (Susan Walters) has become a wedge between Jack and Ashley as of late, so it makes sense that she’s only photographed alongside Kyle. Will Summer take issue if her hubby invites Ms. Jenkins over for Christmas? Meanwhile, the threat of Jeremy Stark is also imminent!

It looks like Ashley will also spend some time with Tucker (Trevor St. John). Ashley isn’t dressed up in formal wear, so it’s unlikely they’ll be out on a date. But obviously, this is a big win for the shady mogul! In fact, photos suggest that Tucker might stop by the Abbott mansion with a Santa hat and big red sack!
Nate (Sean Dominic) and Elena (Brytni Sarpy) are another couple viewers weren’t sure they’d see together this Christmas. Even though their relationship is touch-and-go at the moment, the two look dazzling under the tree at their condo. On a related note, there are no images of their neighbor Devon, Abby, Dominic or Chance, so perhaps their holidays will mostly occur off-screen.

What about the rest of the Newman clan? Well, Victor is nowhere to be seen, but that’s to be expected since Eric Braeden rarely takes part in set photos. However, Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) is pictured in front of the mantel at Newman Ranch, holding stockings. So viewers can expect Y&R to uphold its tradition of featuring this super couple over Christmas.
Again, these festive shots don’t reveal the whole picture. However, they provide exciting hints of what’s to come for the residents of Genoa City. What spoilers do you think these photos reveal?
