A Wonderfully Moving Christmas Special
26 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I first want to say that though I am Jewish I absolutely loved this episode and thought it really represented what Christmas should be about: kindness, innocence, an escape from harsh reality, and the belief of a better future. This is one of the few non-Kurt episodes that made me start crying from happiness. Though most of this episode is a recreation of the Grinch story (but Glee style!), it is also its own episode. It was really touching to see Brittany, who isn't blessed with a high intellect, still believing in Santa. But fortunately, the writers didn't just use this as a traditional Brittany joke but fleshed it out. She represents our childish delight we used to experience at Christmastime when we were young before we saw what the real world can be like. She is such a kind-hearted person, the only thing for Christmas she wishes for is for Artie to walk again, and she can't understand why Santa can't make it happen. And like the other kids, we the audience knows that is impossible. But she keeps believing and he is able to, in a fashion. What we wish for can't necessarily happen, but this episode shows that compromises can be made. Also, the scene between Beiste and Brittany was so touching as Beiste reveals a little more about herself as a girl, and how she's grown stronger by using her "undesired curse" to an advantage.
