A Great Holiday Treat!
25 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My wife and I dated while watching the Xfiles every Sunday evening during it's original airings. We LOVED it. This Christmas themed episode is one of our favorites especially the Mulder "left cheek sneak" line! We also just found out that it's original air date 12/13/98 was just the DAY AFTER we got married! We watch this episode most every Christmas! Just the right balance of light-hearted comedy, paranormal and plenty of Mulder- isms and Scully-isms. Love it!

I do like the actual screen writing in this episode. The ghosts bring out a great character summary of each of the main players (M&S). I also think this story fits nicely into the over-arching storyline that develops M&S relationship over the years.

Would really like to know what those gifts they got each other at the end are?
