The appeal of holiday programming to many entertainment fans is the comforting side of the movies and shows we enjoy watching. They break us from mundane routines and transport us into a blissful holiday kingdom filled with romance and often goofy storytelling.
A series that consistently delivers humor, satire, and plot throughout is South Park. It’s not an easy decision program for the holiday season ⏤ on the contrary, it tends to push things to the next level. Why ditch the irony and raw humor when you can just throw a bow at it and make it festive? That’s the approach South Park lost, and it works.
If you’re looking for some lighthearted humor to get you through the holiday season, here are nine Christmas episodes. South Park gave us over the years, in chronological order for your viewing pleasure.

The mayor of South Park soon decided that the holiday season should be celebrated without anything that might offend anyone. Kyle quickly thought he had found the solution to the problem: Mr. Hankey, the Christmas Bear. However, no one else seems to be on board with the celebration of a poop, and they certainly don’t believe one has come back to life.
Kyle spends the entire episode trying to convince those around him that Mr. Hankey is real; However, it was found that Kyle was slowly losing his mind, throwing and placing feces in unnatural places.
