Christmas episodes (H-Z) #-G
Valentine's Day * St. Patrick's Day * Easter * Halloween * Thanksgiving * Christmas
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.)

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

Saturday Night Live
There have been many episodes, over the years, that contained Christmas or Hanukkah sketches. The ones I'd know would mostly be from the 90s, but I'm sure they started doing such things in the 70s, and still do them now. And occasionally they might air a compilation episode of such sketches from over the years. (I do have one sketch listed on my It's a Wonderful Life parodies page and another on my Gift of the Magi parodies page.)
