The Chrismukkah That Almost Wasn't (#2.6)
10 September 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It is Chrismukkah time and it gets even crazier than last year. Seth invites Marissa and Summer over and Ryan invites Lindsay. Then they find out who Lindsay's dad is but it doesn't work to uninvite anymore and the whole confession happens in the middle of the evening which almost ruins Chrismukkah, but luckily only almost.

A great holiday episode. They made it both dramatic and yet so positive and happy at the end.

I usually don't like neither Lindsay nor Summer but they were pretty great in this episode both making some great contributions to save and improve Chrismukkah.
