Christmas Specials Wiki; TV Tropes; Wikipedia

So many regular series, since the dawn of time, have had Christmas episodes, which I don't consider "specials." Still, I suppose I might as well at least list some of them, in passing. At least the ones I personally remember (even vaguely) seeing; surely there have been many I've seen that I've forgotten, and many more that I've never seen at all. Also note that some shows, particularly animated ones, have episodes broken into separate shorts, not all of which will necessarily be related to the holiday. (This section is for not only Christmas, but potentially Hanukkah or any other wintery/December holidays, including fake ones.) Oh, and while the holiday may play a particularly prominent role in many of the episodes listed here, sometimes it's only a very minor aspect of the episode's plot.

= My favorite Christmas episodes. (Some eps that I don't remember well might become favorites if I ever see them again.)


3rd Rock from the Sun
Season 2: Jolly Old St. Dick (Amazon; Christmas Specials Wiki; IMDb; TV.com)

30 Rock
This show has had several Christmas episodes, and I'm sure I enjoyed them all when they first aired, but I am shocked to discover that now I don't specifically remember any of them. Someday I expect I'll rewatch the series, and then I'll list those episodes here.

I don't specifically remember any of this show's Christmas episodes, but I do have a Christmas CD from the show.
