With exactly one month to go until the U.S. premiere of Downton Abbey’s sixth and last season, ITV has dropped a nugget of holiday cheer for those anxiously awaiting the return of the Crawleys and their staff.

In the trailer for Downton‘s final Christmas episode, which airs on ITV Dec. 25, everyone prepares for the holidays with a rendition of the classic “Auld Lang Syne,” and discusses the changes that are coming to the Yorkshire country house.

“We never know what’s coming of course. Who does?” Robert (Hugh Bonneville) asks in the clip. “But I’d say we have a good chance.”
