Addicts Want to Know: Ranking the Simpsons Christmas Episodes

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So I thought I’d take a little break from the event and grab an opinion poll of the Addicts Community.

As I talked about on Addicts Live! last weekend, I recently came across an article online that ranked the best Simpsons Christmas episodes.  Of course this article was written in 2014, so before this year’s Nightmare After Krustmas episode aired…so it leaves that one off.


So as I was reading the article, I thought it would be fun to see where the Addicts Community ranks each episode and we could share the results prior to Christmas.  So if you don’t mind, take a moment to rank each of the 14 episodes from best (1) to worst (14) in the poll below and we’ll share the results next week….

Scroll down/left to view all of the ranking options.

If you’re having trouble using the form above, here’s the direct link

For those curious here’s the article where they ranked each episode, and why. And here’s the ranking order (since I know sometimes those slideshows can be annoying):
13. She of Little Faith
12. Simpsons Christmas Stories
11. Tis’ the Fifteenth Season
10. White Christmas Blues
9. Grift of the Magi
8. The Fight Before Christmas
7. Kill Gill Volumes I & II
6. Holidays of Future Passed
5. I Won’t Be Home for Christmas
4. Skinner’s Sense of Snow
3. Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire
2. Marge Be Not Proud
1. Miracle on Evergreen Terrace

I should note that I came across another list, which I discussed on Addicts Live! where Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire was ranked at number 1, and everything else was ranked totally different.  That list can be found here, and it had them ranked:
13. White Christmas Blues
12. Kill Gil , Volumes I & II
11. Skinner’s Sense of Snow
10. I Won’t Be Home for Christmas
9. Tis the Fifteenth Season
8. Simpsons Christmas Stories
7. The Fight Before Christmas
6. Holidays of Future Passed
5. The Grift of the Magi
4. Miracle on Evergreen Terrace
3. She of Little Faith
2. Marge Be Not Proud
1. Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire

Basically the only one these two lists agreed on is Marge Be Not Proud is the 2nd best Christmas Episode.

And for those who haven’t yet seen The Nightmare After Krustmas, here’s what the “experts” are saying about it….we’ll have an episode re-cap up from Wookiee soon.

What are your thoughts on the best and worst Simpsons Christmas episodes? Thoughts on the two different lists?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

  1. I really wish they aired the 2016 Christmas episode before releasing the event. I think people would have been more open to it if they saw the episode first and how it relates directly to the episode.

    • I’ve never watched all the Christmas episodes together until Alissa prompted me, in fact most of them have so little to do with Christmas I didn’t even think of them as Christmas episodes. That confuses me me even more why people were so upset. Christmas is far from a Simpsons tradition like Halloween. Most episodes seem to be about the commercialization of Christmas. Very cynical views. After watching these I think this event holds closer to The Simpsons take on the holidays more than any other. It’s not Peanuts, it’s not Rudolph. If that’s what you want, The Simpsons aren’t going to deliver.

  2. How long will this be available? I’m going to have to rewatch them before I can vote.

  3. I probably get one every ten times I clean up (40 piles o’ trash)

  4. I love the very first Simpsons episode!! “Simpsons Roasting On An Open Fire” has always been my favorite episode, let alone the best Christmas episode!

  5. off topic but you guys know the ‘debris’
    that you get from the rocket launch? when you ‘clean up springfield’ are you able to get donuts from said debris? an answer would be much appreciated. thanks in advance.
