  • If this episode took place around Christmas, then why was Sandy active? In "Pre-Hibernation Week" and "Survival of the Idiots," she hibernated during wintertime. As in "Bubble Buddy," she migrated through winter.

  • We learn that the people of Bikini Bottom didn't know about Christmas before Sandy told them.

  • This is the second time Squidward did something nice for SpongeBob after he felt sad. The first time was in "Pizza Delivery."

  • This is the second time the Nutcracker Song is played. It was first played in "Suds."

  • In the UK, the subtitles appear and disappear a couple of seconds too early throughout the whole episode.

  • In the 2006 premiere of this episode, Drake Bell could be seen in the corner of the screen hanging a spoon from his nose.

  • This is the fourth episode of SpongeBob that features a holiday. The others are "Scaredy Pants," "Valentine's Day," and "Fools in April." "I Was A Teenage Gary" doesn't really count, although it did air with "Scaredy Pants" and kind of has a Halloween touch to it.

Trivia (20)

  • Since Squidward was so anti-Christmas and couldn't have been bothered to deal with the holiday, why would he have bothered to get a Santa suit? More importantly, where would he have gotten it in two minutes?

  • In "The Secret Box", Patrick's secret is revealed to be "That embarrassing snapshot of SpongeBob at the Christmas party". Presumably, this is the picture that Squidward took of a heartbroken SpongeBob after Santa failed to arrive.

  • After this episode, Squidward misses the next 6 episodes: "Survival of the Idiots," "Dumped," "No Free Rides," "I'm Your Biggest Fanatic," "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy III" and "Squirrel Jokes."

  • Sandy is responsible for bringing Christmas to Bikini Bottom, but oddly, she's not seen in the rest of the episode.

  • In the episode "Jellyfishing," SpongeBob said "Welcome home, Squidward!" Then, Patrick said "Merry Christmas!" This might seem like a goof, since "Jellyfishing" aired before this episode. However, the majority of this episode is a flashback so it could've actually taken place anytime between the first episode and "Jellyfishing."

  • If you look closely at the bunch of bottles on the surface, you can see Patrick's ripped paper is there throughout the whole scene.

  • If all sea creatures are small, how did Santa get a small enough paper for Squidward to read, in addition to the small writing, since humans are bigger?

  • Oddly enough, this episode has aired in weird months, including October.
