Storyline

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Springfield, but while Marge gets in the holiday spirit, it's bah humbug for the rest of the family. Disappointed that she is alone spreading the holiday cheer, Marge sends a letter to Martha Clause to help her save the family Christmas. Martha comes to the rescue and transforms the house into the North Pole chalet Marge has always dreamed of, but when the family is noticeably absent from the perfectly trimmed holiday home, she realizes that it's Homer and the kids who make the holidays special. Meanwhile, the Simpsons get ready to sneak away for a tropical holiday vacation in Hawaii, but surprise visitors Mr. Burns and Moe's new friend, Katy Perry delay their getaway. Four special holiday tales will be spun. Written by Fox Publicity

Best episode in a LONG time...
5 December 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This episode was broken into a number of smaller stories. Each smaller story most likely could have been expanded into a full 22 minute episode. However, they did a very good job with this one.

Something about "The Fight Before Christmas" really struck a chord with me. I'm really into the older (I guess "classical") Simpsons (seasons 3- 5'ish). Without going into the plot, this episode really felt like the older styles. My second favourite Christmas episode so far (the first being Santa's Little Helper).

I like how The Simpsons isn't afraid to say Merry Christmas. It's really refreshing.

Highly recommend it! 10/10
