13 Sitcoms With Great Holiday Episodes We Forgot About

It's that time of year again! The leaves are changing color, the air is getting cooler, and practically every sitcom on television is doing a holiday-themed episode. While some viewers find these specials to be a charming tradition, others find them to be formulaic and unoriginal. Regardless of which camp you fall into, there's no denying that the holiday episode has become a staple of the sitcom genre.

So what makes these episodes so popular? One theory is that they provide a welcome break from the usual day-to-day problems that characters face. Instead of dealing with relationship drama or work stress, characters can come together to celebrate the holidays and enjoy each other's company. This change of pace can be refreshing for both viewers and writers alike. Additionally, holiday episodes often feature guest stars and cameo appearances, which can help to boost ratings.

Whether you love them or hate them, there's no escaping the holiday episode. So sit back, grab some eggnog, and enjoy the festive fun
