10.) Bike Parade – Season Twenty-Two (2018)
When watched just for the holidays, this episode feels out of place. Many established story lines throughout the season crescendo during this episode. Instead of the holidays being relevant, the plot revolves around consumerism, a bike parade, and Jeff Bezos.
9) #HappyHolograms – Season Eighteen (2014)
This episode also is affected by multiple story lines needing further explanation to have the jokes fully make sense. It has a wholesome message about saving the living room and is riddled with celebrity appearances, but not as memorable as a holiday episode.
8) Christmas Snow – Season Twenty-Three (2019)
After too many drunk driving accidents around the holidays Santa Clause somehow outlaws alcohol throughout South Park. With everyone desperate for a buzz, Randy and Towlie start delivering marijuana to South Park from ‘Tegridy Farms.’ Randy keeps coming up with various hilarious loopholes and an overall analogue for legalizing drugs.
7) It’s Christmas in Canada – Season Seven (2003)
Christmas in Canada is a parody of The Wizard of Oz. It’s a Christmas adventure for the four boys, as they travel throughout Canada to rescue Kyle’s adapted brother, Ike, who was taken to Canada by his biological parents.
6) Mr. Hankey’s Christmas Classics – Season Three (1999)
This is a musical compilation episode consisting of eleven original songs and parody versions of holiday favorites. Enjoy the musical genius of Trey Parker and Matt Stone over a decade before they created the Broadway hit The Book of Mormon.

5) Merry Christmas, Charlie Manson! – Season Two (1998)
A classic South Park episode with Cartman’s extended family, a fake mall Mr. Hankey, and criminal Charles Manson join the boys on this Christmas adventure. A fun look at the earlier comedy style of South Park.
4) A Very Crappy Christmas – Season Four (2000)
3) Red Sleigh Down – Season Six (2002)
Santa, Jesus, Mr. Hankey and the boys visit Iraq to spread holiday cheer and things do not go according to plan. A rendition of ’12 Days of Christmas’ sung by Jimmy, a bunch of great cameos, and the return of Kenny makes this a special holiday episode.
