It’s that time of year again, and if you’re like me, that means one thing: Time to grab selected hits from your DVD shelf and fire up Christmas episodes from your favorite TV shows. I’m a nerd when it comes to Thanksgiving episodes, too — I usually make a double feature of “Pangs” and “Shibboleth” — but there’s something about the Christmas installments that ties into the hope, joy, or just plain desire for escape always brought on by the season, as well as the way they somehow connect to a feeling of childhood. It’s with all that in mind that I offer a few of my favorite Christmas episodes of certain TV series and invite you to submit your own. Christmas specials are welcome too — and for those with a hankering to lose themselves for hours in an unstoppable wave of nostalgia, there’s BetaMaXmas — but I’ll stick with regular TV shows for now.

In no particular order:

“The West Wing” — “In Excelsis Deo” and “Noel”
“30 Rock” — “Ludachristmas”
“The Office” (U.S.) — “Christmas Party”
“Sports Night” — “The Six Southern Gentlemen of Tennessee”
“Buffy the Vampire Slayer” — “Amends”
“Veronica Mars” — “An Echolls Family Christmas”
