It's the Christmas season. Frasier is in a anti-Christmas bah-humbug mood much to Lilith's chagrin. Norm has a part-time job he fails to mention... See more » | Full synopsis »

Christmas Cheers (#6.12), 2 June 2014
Author: ComedyFan2010 from Canada

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

It is Christmas! And Rebecca makes them work on Christmas Eve until the last customer leaves. Sam also finds out that Rebecca got them gifts and everyone else got gift for her as well. So he rushes out to find something but all stores are closed. Yet an angel in form of stewardess comes and gives them some stuff she bought.

Well it is a Christmas episode. It is made to create a Christmas spirit in us, even in the worst cynics, represented by Frasier in this episode. So it isn't all too funny. The scene with Santa in the end was all cheesy only luckily unlike in many other sitcoms we see that this is not a real Santa. And they used my least favorite Christmas movie to evoke Christmas spirit in the gang. Please, if I roll eyes whenever I watch it I doubt it would make someone like Carla cry!
