    Holiday episodes have become a time-honored television tradition. Many shows bring on the good tidings, but only some manage to really separate themselves from the pack. Just as every seasonal tune can't be a hit, only the best holiday episodes stand out in our memories. We can only watch characters trot through their show's version of It's a Wonderful Life so many times. An extra "bah humbug" to any series that merely regurgitates A Christmas Carol.

    But, these 23 episodes are truly special — because they're fresh, creative, funny, and yes, heartwarming. Watching them gets you in the holiday spirit, and they're absolutely worth repeat viewings when you need a little extra cheer.
