With Christmas just a few days away, now is the time that everyone really starts to get into the Christmas mood. We all have those favorite holiday movies that fill our hearts with the spirit of Christmas and we love to watch them year after year. You could always count on your favorite sitcom having that one special Christmas episode that managed to put even the most Scrooge-like of people in the holiday mood
From The Brady Bunch to Seinfeld, these 10 sitcom Christmas scenes take us for a walk down a holiday memory lane.
1. Addams Family – If you think you receive some freaky gifts at Christmas, you can probably relate to the special presents Morticia has for her family at Christmas!
2. The Brady Bunch – When Carol loses her voice before her big performance at the Christmas day services, a selfless Cindy asks Santa to get her mommy’s voice back in this classic episode from the first season.
3. The Beverly Hillbillies – The Clampetts decide there is ‘no place like home’ for Christmas, and leave Beverly Hills for the ‘hills back home!’
4. Seinfeld – Forget Christmas! Let’s celebrate Festivus!
5. Friends – It wouldn’t be Christmas without an original carol from the delightfully daffy Phoebe.
6. The Partridge Family – The Partridges, with plenty of help from some studio singers, cheer up a lonely old man with Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas.
7. The Carol Burnett Show – Technically The Carol Burnett Show was a variety show, not a sitcom, but we definitely wanted to include Eunice and Mama.
8. The Mary Tyler Moore Show – Before she was the it girl of 2010, Betty White was a festive Sue Ann Nivens on MTM.
9. The Facts of Life – In the spirit of Christmas, the girls and Mrs. Garrett get involved in putting on a show for an orphanage, only to have their good intentions land them in jail.
10. The Golden Girls – Blanche “spices up” Christmas for the Golden Girls by giving them each a special calendar with a ‘half-naked man of the month!’
