Jimmy's Favorite Christmas-Themed TV Episodes

Yes, I know I'm late.  But when your sitting around this week with nothing to do (or staring into space at work because everyone else is on vacation), you really could be watching some of these entertaining, Christmas-themed TV episodes (in no particular order):

"A Very Topanga Christmas" - Boy Meets World
Topanga spends Christmas with the Matthews family and forces her family's traditions on them.  It drives everybody (especially Cory) crazy.  He dozes off after fleeing the scene to Shawn's and is awakened by Mr. Feeny as the Ghost of Christmas Future.
"Abed's Uncontrollable Christmas" - Community
Abed sees everything in stop motion animation and they travel around a Christmas planet in search of the true meaning of Christmas.
"Gus's Dad May Have Killed an Old Guy" - Psych
Shawn stays by Gus's parents' house at Christmas, trying to get with Gus's sister in secret.  Meanwhile, Gus's dad is the lead suspect in the murder of a neighbor and Shawn has to prove him innocent.
"The Polarizing Express" - Psych
Shawn travels around seeing what life would be like if he wasn't there.  At first he's being delusional and sees everyone as being really messed up without him (Sitcom Gus, his dad a fat mess, etc.) but then he sees the light.
"Christmas Party" - The Office
This first of many Christmas-themed episodes of The Office has Michael upset that he was getting a knitted oven mitt from Phyllis (he bought an iPod for Ryan) and he turns it into "Yankee Swap".  Meanwhile Jim had a special gift for Pam that Dwight eventually gets.  It is a classic mess.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Update: I'm still alive!

No, I didn't die.  I'm just employed.  But I did get a chance to re-theme this blog for Christmas.  What do you think?

I thought that this year, instead of telling you my favorite Christmas films, I would tell you my favorite Christmas TV episodes.  Before I divulge my list of favorite Christmas TV episodes, I would be interested to know some of your favorites (leave a comment).
Hogsmeade (in the end of June)

One more bit of news is that I am now the proud owner of an Amazon Kindle Touch.  It is a wonderful device that is highly portable and encourages me to read more.  I still love and read real books, but the Kindle is an nice way to read as well.  I would definitely recommend it if you are interested.

Finally, I just wanted to express my sheer joy in the fact that there is snow on the ground in Wisconsin.  It feels more like the season and I am very happy.  (Also, if you type "let it snow" into Google,  you get an awesome surprise.)
