Hi, my name is RedHandedJill and I am addicted to special holiday episodes of TV shows. Whenever this time of the year rolls around, I always go back and rewatch them, even though by now I know every beat, line, and laugh on each one. I am not hugely into Christmas. It tends to get pretty cheesy with the music and decorations, but I get all warm and fuzzy from watching these episodes. Here are some of my favorites. Anyone else get really into them or have different favorites? (Sorry it’s so long!)
