The Best Christmas Show They Ever Did.
3 May 2017 | by powermandanSee all my reviews

Full House has done three Christmas shows. I'd call this one the best. The second one (which happened in season 6) just happened to use Christmas and the final one (in season 8) just happens to not be quite as good as this.

The Tanners are going to spend Christmas in Colorado. Being the idiots they all are, decided to go on Christmas Eve. Don't bother getting there a few days earlier! Heavy snow caused the plane to remain grounded until morning, so all the passengers must stay in a terminal too small to be a big town. The airline lost some luggage, including the Tanners' Christmas presents. Everybody's pouting when Jesse makes them wake up. Him explaining what Christmas is all about while still acknowledging Jesus (knowing how Jewish-populated the cast and crew are). Everything what he said is right. Rebecca happened to be on the flight because she was switching in Colorado to visit her family in Nebraska. Their first kiss happens here.

Capturing the spirit of Christmas and some big laughs make this a wonderful episode.
