Retro Christmas Episodes
Bringing Holiday Memories Back to Life
Here are some fun, memorable video clips of classic TV Christmas moments for
your viewing pleasure. It can seem like some of these characters are old friends.
Holiday TV shows can remind us of where we were, how old we were, who we were with when we first watched that episode. The characters are old familiar faces that we see on television as we're getting ready to visit our own friends and family for the season.
Christmas television shows can be a lot of fun. Each year, TV shows try to come up with new ideas for holiday shows, but the same pretty much ingredients always work for Christmas gatherings, just like in real life.
Think about all the fun, and not so fun, holiday office parties. Are you looking forward to or dreading this year's get-together with family, the in-laws? Going to make the best of a Christmas in a new town? Find feel-good memories you didn't know you remembered.
Let me know your favorite holiday TV memories. We're always updating this page, changing and adding similar videos. Due to some technical fluctuations, the page is being relocated here to the blog. Thanks and Happy Holidays. As always thank the good folks who upload these videos with comments and Likes. Videos are apt to change or be removed.
