Did You Have a Very Glee Christmas?

Did you have yourself A Very Glee Christmas this week, readers?

Our favorite musical comedy aired a special holiday episode tonight, one dedicated to classic Christmas favorites and Brittany's belief in Santa Claus.

We're working hard on our recap/review of the installment and hope you return first thing Wednesday morning to read our critic's take on the latest developments. We have already updated our Glee quotes and Glee music section, however. Check them out now!

Also, discuss the hour in our Glee forum and sound off: What did you think?

I think it was not good for the kid fans because little kids believe in santa and you need to keep that alive in till thay are in their teen years I hope little kids did not watch this episode of Glee.

Glee is becoming annoying just like Rachel!!

I am just about done with this show. Even the songs were bad this time, and I am getting sick of watching Rachel be unhappy or blamed for things that Finn had a hand in too. Why is Finn all buddy buddy with Puck if he's so upset that Rachel kissed him? Puck didn't even tell him about it, rachel did. The double standards on this show are insane. Sick of this show jerking me around.

One of the better Glee episodes that I've seen in a while. Good story lines and good song selection :)

Best, and most apt line, given recent epsisodes, was Rachel's - 'I can't believe that that teacher let those students speak to us like that.' However, it was nice to have a Rachel-bullying free episode. The Brittany storyline was absolutely adorable, she's a complete sweetheart, and her and Artie together may be the sweetest thing ever. All her lines were absolute magic, and the fact that everyone worked so hard to keep her believing in Santa was brilliant. Sue having a change of heart was lovely, and Artie getting to walk again was so touching. The Coach is fantastic, a much better character than Ken Tanaka ever was, and it's a pleasure to watch her on-screen. The songs were great, I liked all of them, but the best one would be when the whole glee club sung in the staffroom. It was so great to see them singing together (given the complete mess that were the songs at Sectionals) and it was beautiful. I still think that Rachel should not have to be continually apologising to Finn, mainly because I believe they both have things to apologise for, and he was hideous in the last episode. I still maintain that he needs to get off his high horse, but that's another story. Overall, this was a huge step up from last week. Sure, there wasn't a lot of plot or character development, but it was a sweet episode and miles better than last week. It even left me excited for when the show returns again. Considering how much I loathed 'Special Education' this was a big thing for me.

I agree with those who say that the plot development leaves something to be desired but Christmas episodes tend to be like that anyways so it's okay. Besides that, it was really touchinggggg. Dude, how sweet can Brittney get? Writers are purposely doing this to us to make us adore her beyond reason. She was perfect in the Grinch scene with Sue...."at least their dolls won't be homeless."

I loved it except for the "Baby It's Cold Outside" context. Their performance is like, the most adorable thing ever, and I've been watching and rewatching the clip online all week.... but for it to be a rehearsal? So disappointing. Kurt may have been really feeling it (I mean he even says he's in love with Blaine) but for Blaine it was just...practice for doing it for real with a girl? WTH is that?
But on the whole: wonderful episode

the episode is good, most especially the scene where Mr.Schuester tell the glee club that at our age chrismas really scuks, and we just need to remember the feeling we have when we are young to feel the essence of christmas...
I hate when finn love christmas but still not forgiving rachel, i hope that Puck will cathc rachel in back his arms (his biceps are hot!).... can't wait for next episode!!!!

Glee Quotes

Beiste: Dr. Jones said the new end of world date is September 27, 2014
Brittany: That gives us like two whole years of giving love and brutal honesty to everyone we know.

Relationships are a lot like flowers. If you find the right seed, put it in good soil, give it water and sunlight, bam. Perfect bud. And then comes winter and the flower dies. But if you tend that garden, spring will come along and that flower will bloom again.
