    Whenever I watch this episode I'm in the mood for Christmas and for some miracles. There has never been a more special Christmas espisode. It is amazing how the mood of the episode changes from beginning to end. At the beginning, it's all gloomy and sad and it becomes more cheerful as it goes on. I really liked the story of the woman who's daughter was missing, and is finally found. That was one of the most special stories in ER history. What I really liked was how people found the spirit and decided to sing Christmas carols, that was great. I like how Carol was inspired by her patient. This is one of the best Christmas episodes ever.moreless

      Susan: Well, who sings?
      Carol: Well, I'm working on that. (Carter walks by and Carol smiles pleasantly) Carter!

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • When Kerry was asked about her African friend, Mlungisi, after she took the day off to be with him, she cryptically replied, "I had a farm in Africa..." mimicking Meryl Streep's memorable line from the 1985 film Out of Africa, in which Streep played a Danish baroness who lived in Kenya for a time and had a passionate affair with a big game hunter.

    • Hanna Steiner and family throw an impromptu Chanukah celebration. The children play dreidel. This sets up Mrs. Steiner to teach us that the letters on the dreidel mean "A Miracle Happened There," which is how they came up with the title for this episode.
