Fresh off the Boat “The Real Santa” – Season 2, Episode 10

Bob’s Burgers “Christmas in the Car” – Season 4, Episode 8
This episode is all about a woman who is just as enthusiastic about Christmas as I am!

Supernatural “A Very Supernatural Christmas” – Season 3, Episode 8
Do you ever watch a Christmas episode of your favorite show and think, “Why was there so much fluff and cheer instead of action and a murder mystery?” Well, if that’s you, Supernatural has you covered.

Hey Arnold! “Arnold’s Christmas” – Season 1, Episode 11
As a kid, I only recognized Hey Arnold! as the show that got my brother and I shouting, “Stoop Kid’s afraid to leave the stoop!” Now, I recognize it as the show that brought me this heartfelt, tear jerker of an episode. Arnold seeks to reunite his neighbor, Mr. Hyunh, with his daughter who he was separated from during the Vietnam War. Arnold’s aim to provide his neighbor with this amazing Christmas gift is contrasted with that of his classmate, Helga, who only cares about getting luxurious and expensive gifts. If you are looking for an episode that talks about immigration and capitalism all in under 30 minutes, this is the one! Watch on: Hulu!
