Christmas is a celebration that touches many people around the world. In addition to being a very important holiday in different cultures, there are some striking elements that, over the years, have become even more popular.
In this sense, the Christmas festivities could not be left out of the scripts of several famous series. So, in this list, we’ll see a little more about that special occasion when series characters donned the best Christmas costumes to celebrate this date in style. Check it out below.
1. Chris, from Everybody hates Chris
To earn extra income at the end of the year, Julius (Terry Crews) decided to work as Santa Claus in a department store. In this way, his son Chris (Tyler James Williams) helped him as an assistant goblin, but he ended up being deeply irritated by everything that happened around him.
2. Joey Tribbiani, from friends
When it comes to Christmas episode in the world of series, one of the most remembered is undoubtedly the 10th of the 6th season of friends. Entitled “The One With the Armadillo of the Holidays”, it saw some iconic costumes on screen, and one of the most interesting was that of Joey (Matt LeBlanc) as Superman — the character wishing everyone a “Merry Christmas” is one of the great moments of the show.
3. Ross Geller, from friends
In the same episode quoted above, Ross (David Schwimmer) also dressed up to impress his son and teach him about Chanukah, a Jewish festival also known as “The Festival of Lights”. The resourcefulness and complicity of the cast at all times made this one of the great series of Christmas episodes.
4. Linnaeus and Augustine, from The big family
One of the most captivating Brazilian series also had several Christmas episodes. However, when Lineu Silva (Marco Nanini) and Agostinho Carrara (Pedro Cardoso) dressed up for the occasion, there were many confusions that marked the public, including both ended up at the police station on the day of the famous dinner of Dona Nenê (Marieta Severe).
5. Chet, of Bob’s Burgers
The 1st Christmas episode of the animated series Bob’s Burgers it just happened during its 3rd season. In it, we saw the character Chet (Zach Galifianakis) as a local invader disguising himself by wearing a somewhat cute Christmas costume: a Christmas tree. Gene (Eugene Mirman) and Tina (Dan Mintz) joined him as gifts and we had one of the funniest episodes of the series.
6. Characters of community
What community it’s a pretty inventive series everyone already knows. Scriptwriters and producers always innovate when they want to present news to their audience. In a Christmas episode, this can’t be different, because, in season 2, in “Abed’s Uncontrollable Christmas”, all the characters (in stop-motion animation) used very interesting costumes for the Christmas occasion.
7. Lucy, of I love Lucy
The classic CBS series could not be left out of the list, as in the Christmas episode protagonist Lucy Ricardo (Lucille Ball) dressed up in the iconic Santa costume along with Ricky (Desi Arnaz), Fred (William Frawley) and Ethel (Vivian Vance). The result was great fun for the public at the time, which was a great surprise.
8. Schmidt, of New Girl
At the height of Fox comedies, in early 2010, the characters were always known for embracing different molds in relation to Christmas costumes, especially when talking about Santa Claus. In New Girl, we have a somewhat sexy version for the good old man and straight from Schmidt (Max Greenfield). Honestly, it was an iconic look and well remembered among fans of the series to this day.
9. Phyllis Vance, from The office
Few Christmas episodes are as memorable as those featured in The Office. Perhaps one of the most celebrated among audiences is “Secret Santa” in season 6. Written by Mindy Kaling and directed by Randall Einhorn, the episode showcased the characters’ many iconic costumes, such as Phyllis Vance’s (Phyllis Smith) Santa Claus.
Although Michael (Steve Carell) was not very pleased with the events that happened from that, the viewers managed to have a lot of fun with the events unfolding.
10. Michael Scott, from The Office
In the same episode quoted above, Michael subverted the Santa Claus costume and dressed up as Jesus Christ. With that, the character stated that, from that moment, he had the ability to fly and heal all those who suffered. One of the great moments of this show.
