Ranking The 20 Best Holiday "SNL" Sketches

By Joanna Robinson | Seriously Random Lists | December 18, 2012 | Comments ()


Watching Martin Short's mostly excellent Holiday "SNL" episode last weekend got me uber nostalgic for my favorite Holiday-themed sketches. Over the years, "SNL" has released several Holiday compilations and clip shows (including the excruciatingly bad "A Very Gilly Christmas"), so thankfully none of the following sketches have been allowed to fade into obscurity. But usually one or more of my favorites is missing from the compilations. So, no, I'm not showing you anything new, but I am showing some things I love and ain't that the Holiday spirit? So here they are, in a very particular order, the 20 best Holiday "SNL" sketches.

20. "Christmas Urchins"

19. "Dysfunctional Family Christmas"

18. "Santa's My Boyfriend"

17. "Motivational Santa"

16. "Glengarry Glen-Christmas"

15. "Hannukah Harry"

14. "Dick In A Box"

13. "Mister Robinson's Neighborhood"

12. "Christmastime For The Jews"

11. "Season's Greetings Fom Tarzan, Tonto and Frankenstein"

10. "I Wish It Was Christmas Today"

8. & 9. "Christmas With Stefon"

7. "Trump Christmas"

6. "Bring It On In To Homelessville"

5. "Hannukah Song"

4. "Irwin Mainway"

3. "Steve Martin's Christmas Wish"
