    • The German episode title is "Das schönste Geschenk", meaning "The Most Beautiful Gift".

    • Music: "O Holy Night" performed by Telma Hopkins

    Trivia (2)

    • Richie called Mother Winslow "Grandma." She's not his Grandma. She's Eddie and Laura's Grandma because she's Carl's mother. She can't be Richie's Grandma because Richie's mother is Rachel, Harriette's sister.

    • At the beginning of this episode when Steve tells Laura that he just got a job as a gift wrapper at the mall but when he said it said that he is now a "rapper" and Laura thought he was saying that he is now a singing rapper and she said that he can't even carry a tune. But how could that be when in Episode #74, "Dance to the music" that Steve wrote a rap song for Laura asking her to the Homecoming Dance for the 26th time and the song sounded like Steve carried every single tune of it pretty well.
