I never really cared for holiday themed episodes. Maybe it's because i'm not American or Christian/Catholic but it always bothered me to sit through cheesy Thanksgiving and Christmas episodes. I always thought they were a waste of a 45 minute episode when they could be using it to forward their storylines. They were always used as random fillers. Not everyone in the world celebrates those days.. I think people forget that. I don't know.

Yeah! I love holidays! We dont have Thanksgiving here (and honestly with the history of thanksgiving, it gives me no celebratory feels) but I like watching my favorite shows enjoy their own holidays

I feel like I just sounded like our favourite grumpy diner owner.

Just to be clear, I don't hate the holidays, just holiday themed episodes!

Love that gif, it's kind of mesmerizing to look at on a loop.

I get where you're coming from, Melissa, but I think if done in the right way they can be charming as well as advance the character SLs. I also think with this show in particular, being that it was a small town and very in tune with the changing seasons, holidays are a BIG deal in small town America. I was raised in a small town through my high school years and we had parades and the whole place was decorated with pumpkins and XMAS decorations, it really was quite charming to me. But I do agree that some shows can get really cheesy with them and they do feel like fillers.

I think Gilmore Girls did well with making the holidays charming (for the most part). I love the four Thanksgivings where they don't want to let anyone down so they just keep on eating. That was adorable and totally in character. But the Christmas in S7 bothered me a little.

I'll give you that, that episode in particular seemed a bit forced.

I also appreciated how in S1, when Lorelai was uninvited from her parents Christmas party you didn't see much holiday celebration in a sense (minus the Santa Burger). That was subtle and cute, and how holidays should be portrayed. It's way more realistic.
