During a meeting, writers are debunking various Christmas traditions and beliefs. One of the writers refers to the "Immaculate Conception" as being the same as the "virgin birth." The "Immaculate Conception" is Catholic dogma that refers to the conception of Mary, not Christ. It claims that Mary was conceived without "Original Sin" and has nothing to do with the virgin birth.

We loved the show
14 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My husband and I loved the Christmas show because of the sweet interaction between the characters and the positive Christmas point of view. We think Christmas is a special time and your show reflected that. The casual conversations between Matthew and Brad were hysterical as was the visit to the Gyn office with Brad. The musicians were fantastic and we would like to know who they are so we can buy some of their CDs. Please reveal the music source. And please continue the show. Some of the episodes did not have the conversations that sparkle like this episode did. Please keep it on the air and could we please hear the musicians again? We have replayed this episode four times already.
