131 - The Four Episodes of Christmas

When it comes to Christmas Episodes of TV shows - That is, TV shows that exist year long or in a historical context such as Sit-Coms, Soap Operas and Saturday Morning Cartoons, as opposed to Christmas Specials such as Rudolph or Frosty - there seem to be only four main options:
  • A CHRISTMAS CAROL, where they attempt to put their own spin on the classic tale of Ebeneezer Scrooge with the whole "Three Ghosts" bit.
  • IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE, where an Angel of some sort shows one of the characters what life for their friends and family would be like if they had never been born.
  • MIRACLE ON 34TH ST, where one of our characters that doesn't believe in Santa Claus meets the REAL Santa and becomes a believer by the end of the episode.
  • HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS, where a VERY anti-Christmas person finally learns the *true* meaning of the Holiday (which may be family, presents, togetherness, happiness, joy, jesus, etc).

Try and give me an example of a Christmas Episode that does not fit into one of those categories. I've managed to stump myself.
