Friends is one of those shows on Netflix that will have a Christmas episode every season. During its ten year run, every Christmas episode has been just the right amount of cheesy, funny, and quirky.

Season 1 Episode 10: The One with the Monkey

During this episode, Marcel the monkey is brought into the six friends' lives. Because this episode was a combination of New Year's Eve and Christmas, they each scramble to find a date right before the clock strikes twelve. Rachel shows up to the party all bruised up from a fight at the airport, Phoebe falls in love with her scientist guy David, and of course, Chandler invites his ex-grirlfriend Jaaaaaanice.

Season 2 Episode 9: The One with Phoebe's Dad

This year, Monica decides to throw a Christmas party and the heat gets cranked all the way up. She also decides to tip with cookies instead of money, and well... it didn't work out so great.

Phoebe attempts to sing Christmas songs that incorporate all of her friends' names. Monica, at her new job, is feeling excluded so she gets Joey to work there so she can fire him on purpose to demonstrate authority. Her plan doesn't quite go as well as she'd imagined.
