As the holiday season approaches in South Park, Kyle finds himself in a bind. On the one hand, he feels left out as the only Jew when everyone is celebrating Christmas. On the other, none of the other kids believe him when he tries to tell them about Mr. Hankey, the Christmas Poo. When the real Mr. Hankey shows up, only Kyle and see him and ends up getting locked in a mental hospital. Meanwhile, the rest of the town is in an uproar, with everyone finding something in the school holiday pageant to be offended by. Written by

The unsuccessful efforts by the South Park Elementary School in the episode to include people of non-Christian denomination were inspired by similarly failed attempts Trey Parker
and Matt Stone
witnessed growing up. Parker cited as an example a chorus concert in which the single Jewish student was asked to sing her own Hanukkah song while everybody else sang Christmas songs; although the idea was to make the student feel special, Parker said it only made her feel more lonely and isolated.

Mrs. Broflovski complains that Kyle is playing Joseph of Arimathea in the nativity. She is thinking of the wrong Joseph. Joseph of Nazareth was married to Mary; Joseph of Arimathea was the man who gave up his tomb so that Jesus could be buried there. See more
Not real, eh? If I wasn't real, could I sing this merry little song?

We Wish You a Merry Christmas
