Here are several of your favorite Christmas TV sketches, all in one place

Fall term has come to a close, and it is finally the time to immerse yourself in winter break and all its glory.

From binging on your favorite Christmas movies, to making endless holiday playlists on Spotify, Buddy the Elf’s got nothing on you. You’re feeling festive.

Remember those old Christmas skits on TV that you used to watch? The ones that you made anyone and everyone nearby watch because they made you cry tears of eggnog?

Here’s a “Dad, you’ve got to see this!!” list, and a little something extra to keep the grandparents distracted from asking, yet again, what you want to do after college:

1. “Schweddy Balls” from Saturday Night Live

2. “Christmas Album” from Saturday Night Live

3. “(Do It On My) Twin Bed” from Saturday Night Live

4. “D*** in a Box” from Saturday Night Live

5. “Stefon on Christmas” from Saturday Night Live

6. “Steve Martin’s Christmas Wish” from Saturday Night Live

7. “Amy Poehler and Billy Eichner Christmas Caroling” from Billy on the Street

Or if you have an entire afternoon on your hands, check out the Saturday Night Live Christmas Special.

8. “Christmas Caroling with Brittany Snow” from Funny or Die

9. “Drunk History Christmas” from Funny or Die

10. And in honor of the upcoming bowl season — here’s another throwback.
