In their combined 16 years on SNL—two of which saw them host the best-ever iteration of Weekend Update—Tina Fey and Amy Poehler gave life to a program that, before their arrival, struggled to move past the bro-comedy of Sandler, Spade, and Farley. Now the two are returning to their old stomping grounds: THR reports that Fey and Poehler will co-host SNL’s Christmas episode on Dec. 19.

The pair will be joined by musical guest Bruce Springsteen. For old times’ sake:
