Sam and Dean follow the trail of an Anti-Claus when victims are apparently pulled up the chimney never to be seen again. After a lead goes nowhere, the Winchesters learn the Anti-Claus in in fact a pair of old pagan gods who have assimilated into society and have found a new way of getting their yearly sacrifices. A flashback to Christmas Eve 1991 reveals how Sam found out for the first time what their father really did and where Dean got his gold amulet. Written by Derfel85

Did You Know?


During the filming of this episode, Jared Padalecki, who had been having some personal issues, had a really bad panic attack. The doctor suggested that he may have been clinically depressed. While Jared seems to have overcome this or at least manage it well, it was still a factor for him when he ran his "Always Keep Fighting" campaign in early 2015, selling shirts with Sam Winchester's portrait and the slogan to benefit the charity 'To Write Love On Her Arms'. This is a charity that raises awareness and provides aid to people suffering from Depression and related illnesses. See more »


During the pagan ritual, Sam was cut on his right arm, but at the end of the episode the bandage is on his left arm. See more »


Dean Winchester: So what the hell do you think we're dealing with?
Sam Winchester: Actually, I have an idea.
Dean Winchester: Yeah?
Sam Winchester: Yeah. It's gonna sound crazy...
Dean Winchester: What could you possibly say that sounds crazy to me?
Sam Winchester: Um... Evil Santa.
Dean Winchester: ...Yeah, that's crazy.

Merry Christmas - Supernatural Style
11 December 2013 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

The fourth Christmas Special I have reviewed in celebration of Christmas is Supernatural. This episode does feature the formula of most of the other episodes already (Sam and Dean find a monster, study it, kill it, go back on the road) and here it actually goes pretty well. To be perfectly honest I preferred the idea of Sam and Dean going up against Evil Santa (which was pointed to in the first half) then I liked them going up against the Pagan gods, call it a nitpick but that's just me. I also liked the flashbacks and how that was incorporated with the events going on at the time. So all in all I liked this episode.
