12. “The One with Christmas in Tulsa” (Season nine, episode 10)

One of the creative low points of Friends‘ twilight years (the ninth season was intended to be its last, until NBC convinced the cast to come back for a shortened 10th), “The One with Christmas in Tulsa” is mostly a compilation of clips from past holiday and Chandler-and-Monica-are-so-in-love episodes. Still, even a bad half-hour of Friends isn’t all that bad, and this episode’s twist ending—Chandler quits his job and re-joins the gang right before Christmas—is rather moving.

11. “The One with the Creepy Holiday Card” (Season eight, episode 11)

The extraordinary eighth season of Friends—the only time the show won the Emmy Award for Best Comedy Series—reached its great heights thanks to Rachel’s pregnancy arc. In “The One with the Creepy Holiday Card,” a hormonal Rachel suddenly finds herself attracted to every man in sight; it’s the sole bright spot in an otherwise cheerless episode. The other major storyline? Ross’s new girlfriend wants to put their photo on a Christmas card, and Ross can’t bring himself to tell her that their relationship is actually going nowhere. Bah humbug!
