From Privileged (remember the tree?!) to The Office to Chuck, I have been loving the holiday TV episodes this year. They do way more toward getting me in the holiday spirit than carols over the speakers at Old Navy ever could. Sometimes a holiday episode can even lead to certain phrases infiltrating our pop culture vocabulary, like "Happy Festivus!" (Seinfeld).
Some of my favorites include the Friends episode "The One With the Holiday Armadillo" and the Arrested Development one in which Maeby and Michael sing to one another about "Afternoon Delight" at the company party. Ha! Then there are some older ones, like the Saved by the Bell episode in which the gang befriends a homeless man and brings him and his family to Zach's house. And, of course, "Chrismukkah" from The O.C. is a cherished holiday episode.
What are some of your favorite holiday episodes?
