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.)


Everybody Loves Raymond
This had a bunch of Christmas episodes, and I'd probably remember all of them, but I don't really care enough about them to list them individually.

Evil

Season 12: Christmas Guy (Amazon; A.V. Club; Christmas Specials Wiki; IMDb; TV.com; TV Tropes; Wikia; Wikipedia) This episode resolves a major plot thread that began two episodes earlier.
