Christmas TV Suggestions

Happy December Awesome Ladies! In the Discord channel, a couple of us were chatting about Christmas episodes of TV shows. I noticed that Juli was putting together her list over on her Instagram Stories, so I asked if she would send it over to me to share, I added a few more of my favorites. If you have some you’d like me to add, share them in the comments below.

These are great episodes to watch when you have family or friends over, if you’re cooking or baking, or just on a relaxing night in at home.

  1. “In Excelsis Deo” is probably my favorite episode of the West Wing. I’m definitely going to watch that again this year.

    One of my favorite holiday TV episodes is the Big Bang Theory, Season 2, episode 11, the “Bath Item Gift Hypothesis.”
