'That 70's Show' Christmas Episodes, Ranked

Holiday classics ranked for your bingewatch convenience.


Last week, I ranked The Office's Christmas episodes, so this week I'm going to rank the episodes from That 70's Show, my favorite show as a teenager. Still with the highest number being the best because of how this website works.

1. Winter (Season 7)

The show peaked in seasons 5 & 6, so while this episode has some great moments, it just doesn't measure up to the others on this list. Not to mention the Jackie & Hyde drama was a real downer.

2. The Best Christmas Ever (Season 1)

The first season's Christmas episode also has some classic moments, but the comedy just wasn't as strong in the earlier seasons.

3. Hyde's Christmas Rager (Season 3)

The Christmas party at Hyde's place was great, however, the Jackie & Donna plot feels a little lacking compared to some of the other Christmas episode plots.

4. An Eric Foreman Christmas (Season 4)

I tend to skip season 4 because Eric and Donna's breakup was hard on me, but this is a really good Christmas episode. Not to mention, Kelso's Christmas special is everything.

5. Christmas (Season 6)

This episode has everything. Red as Santa, Jackie and Hyde being adorable, the school dance, Eric finally being popular, Donna's bacon, and Fez with the bullies. And the TNT scene. Everything a Christmas special should be.

So there you go. Enjoy your holiday bingewatch!

Christmas Of Remembrance Series: My Last Letter

Christmas time is not about the gifts... It is about something far, far more special.


Dear Reader,

Thank you for your time.

This is a series that I have dedicated to those I have loved and lost. It was merely a thought, then an idea, and now a realized creation. Christmas time… all winter really is a hard time for me. It holds this duality in my life of being both my favorite and also my least favorite and difficult time of year. It has been that way for years now.

In a way, this series aids my closure and healing further, and it allows me to tell my story in a way that, to me, is less scary (one of the many great facets of this platform). It was never my intention to write this in order to reach people, or encourage people, or serve as an inspiration to anyone. This was for me and only me. No one else. But, if these pieces of writing do impact someone, somewhere, or make them feel encouraged or inspired in some way or another, or just simply make them feel, then I hope you have enjoyed them. If I can make someone feel, then I guess I have done my job.

The life of an artist is often an uncertain one. The life of a human is a trying one. But life is a journey, and all journeys have their trials. Their tests. Their triumphs and rewards. And they all have their losses. What matters most is what you make of all of it. What lessons you learn. What changes you make. What life you create for yourself. What art you create because of it all. It can be very, very hard. But it can all be glorious at the same time.

At the heart of this series, my words, there is this deep and valuable belief of mine: Christmas (or the Winter Holiday that you may celebrate) is so much more about presents and cooking and shopping and all that other bullshit… it is about family.

The family that is related by blood. The family that surrounds your heart. Your Mom. Your brother. Your dearest friends. The bonds that make life valuable. Worth living. These bonds are soulful bonds, ones that are far more special than any mere trivial object. So… be with them. Forgive. Forget. Heal. Mend what is broken. Reassemble what has been shattered. And stop worrying so much. Laugh together. Cry together. Heal on another. Heal together. And may your new days be better, brighter, and full of love.

Happy Holidays.


A song for you...
