Our Favorite Holiday Episodes Because Reasons

While we all have our annual must-watch traditional movies, let’s not leave the rest of our favorite characters and story arcs out of the holiday love: we’ve collected quite a few TV holiday episodes that we love catching reruns of this time of year. Because when people mention Santa, who doesn’t think of Ross Geller as a giant armadillo telling the story of Hanukkah? It’s certainly in our top geeky holiday episodes!

This year, we’re making popcorn, settling in with mugs of hot chocolate, and rewatching our favorite holiday episodes because reasons. What are these reasons, you may ask? Read on to find out!


It isn’t officially the holiday season until we have “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” stuck in our heads, which happened…oh, right, yesterday. That means the the holidays are here! 

Rather than lose our minds trying to get this earworm out, we’re turning it into a fun game: #ReindeerABook. Here’s what we came up with, but feel free to add: we can’t wait to hear yours!

Rey: A movie trailer is a short video made to entice you to watch a movie, which is a two-hour story acted out on screen. And December is one Earth-month.

Han: I like this girl.

Finn: She’s all right.

Jane Austen Missed Connections

This week is Jane Austen’s birthday (she’ll be turning 241, happy birthday, Jane!) and to celebrate, we’re imagining how some of her most beloved characters might make use of one of our more Austenian modern conveniences: the Missed Connections boards on Craigslist. What if, instead of being forced to stoically endure their tumultuous feelings, Jane Austen’s characters were able to empty their hearts out onto the internet? Below we imagine what some of their posts may have looked like.

The Hundred-Acre Games

It’s time for the drawing. “Now, let us begin, or we shall be here all day,” Rabbit says as he crosses to the glass ball with all the names, each roughly scrawled in crayon. Rabbit reaches in, digs his hand deep into the ball with a great rustling and bustling and pulls out a slip of paper.


“Let it not be me,” Winnie-the-Pooh says deep inside his fluff-filled head. “Think it over, think it under. Think it true. It’s not me. It’s not me.”
