Christmas Roundup 2016

xmas-2001Take a trip with me to Christmas in Springfield through the years. On each episode post for a particular year find a description, classic quotes, and my comments followed by the links to the video on YouTube. Sometimes I’m able to share full episodes, some multiple full episodes and on others only selected clips. After that I have a selection of posts about Christmas in Springfield that I hope you will enjoy and a selection of fanfic. This is mostly Manny fanfic, but I’m open to any and all things people want to write about the holiday in Springfield with any couple from any time.

Remember to check back next year when I’ll have more to add. Plus if you find Christmas or any other holidays in Springfield on YouTube or have a fanfic story you want to share I’m all ears, please share.
