The Vampire Diaries is going back in time to a festive — drama-free — Mystic Falls winter wonderland.  

On the Set: Take a tour of The Vampire Diaries (Damon's bedroom included!)

On Thursday's midseason finale, Bonnie (Kat Graham), still stuck in the '90s, tries to recreate a holiday setting while reminiscing about simpler (and less life-threatening) times with her best friends during high school.

The Vampire Diaries' exclusive first look: Bonnie is back for the Christmas episode!

"I love these flashback moments, they're really sweet, and I love [seeing the] girls back together," Candice Accola tells us in the video below. AddsNina Dobrev: "It's the day before Halloween and we're shooting Christmas and there's snow everywhere. ... Tomorrow we're going to be bloody and there will be so much horror around us, but today it's so joyful and festive."

See what else the two had to say about the episode and watch the set get transformed:

The Vampire Diaries airs on Thursdays at 8/7c on The CW.
