    Christmas brings out the best in Richie, who invites a homeless person to share in the holiday with the family. Meanwhile, Eddie accidentally throws away Laura's rag doll and Steve goes to the dumpster in search of her doll when Laura got upset about never seeing her rag doll again. I thought that this was an excellent Christmas episode of "Family Matters". This is one of my favorite "Family Matters" episodes to watch. I love both of the storylines in this very funny and heartwarming Christmas episode. It was nice of Steve to go to the dumpster to search for Laura's rag doll which took him 16 hours to find after Eddie accidentally threw it in the trash and Laura got upset about. Richie inviting a homeless man over for Christmas Eve was very sweet of him and that homeless man named Ben was very likeable character. It was also cool to find out that Ben is actually Santa Claus and Ben only disguises as a homeless person so he can find a family that knows the true meaning of Christmas. Santa Claus (a.k.a. Ben) also giving Carl the present that he has been asking for since he was a child was sweet also. Waldo's cameo appearance near the end of the episode also cracked me up. That dog at the dumpster was also very cute. Overall, an excellent Christmas episode of "Family Matters". 10/10
