Here is a sampling from the intro:

"Welcome to all of our lovely guests as we celebrate this Holiday Season with all of our closest friends and family. We are honored and excited to have you all here as we celebrate with those who we love most.

It’s the best time of the year, after all! Spirits are high, the eggnog is flowing and there are laughs to be held by all. A time to focus on giving rather than getting and a time to be grateful for all that we have. It really is a magical time of the year as everyone comes together as one community in order to make memories that last forever. Unfortunately, however, while the memories from tonight may last forever, it’s probably not for the reasons that we would hope.

While we are family and we do, of course, love each other, we must admit that there are many here who are harboring ill fate. There are dark histories to be learned and scandalous secrets to be discovered. We had high hopes that tonight would go off without a hitch, but given the tumultuous nature of this family, we understand why that simply couldn’t be the case.

With that being said, at the end of the night, three of you will be dead."
