    The family gets stuck in an airport in Colorado and has to spend Christmas there. Stephanie leaves Santa a map, but will he find her? I love this Christmas episode of "Full House". It was handled very well and the storyline was just perfect to watch. One of the best storylines that I have ever seen in this show. It was very funny but it also had a good message. Jesse giving the message near the end of the episode about what Christmas is really all about such as saying that Christmas isn't about Santa Claus and presents, it's about being with your family and sharing the love and joy with them. It was really nice to see everyone make the best of it when they are stuck at the airport on Christmas. DJ, Stephanie, and Michelle getting their presents at the end of the episode was really nice to see as well. Overall, if you want to see a funny Christmas episode with a good message then this is the episode for you... an excellent Christmas episode of "Full House". 10/10moreless
  • christmas holiday classic

    what i liked- the ending, stephanie realizing that 'santa' was really joey, jesse tricking rebecca and getting under the mistletoe with her, jesse at the end getting everyone's holiday spirit back, stephanie worrying that santa will not be able to find her at the airport, amongst other things.



    good episode. I really liked the atmosphere and I thought it had some good humor. A+
  • This is one of THE most amazing episodes. It touches the heart. If you are going to watch Full House for the first time, and need a reason to keep watching, this is one of the best.moreless

    Ho, ho, ho no! There's a huge blizzard outside as the Tanners are on a plane on their way to a family get-together. They have to land early in a baggage claim, the presents are lost, Becky can't go to Nebraska (but that isn't bad for Jesse), and Christmas is ruined. Worst of all, Santa won't be able to find Steph in the baggage claim! Then, Jesse stands up, and he truely expresses the true meaning of Christmas. I also love the humor in this episode. Michelle makes this an episode that anyone will laugh at. Overall, it will get anyone into the Christmas spirit.moreless

    Poor Stephanie. Due to all of her hard work to create a map to where they would be staying in Colorado to Santa, and her work to be a good girl the whole year, what does she get? Nothing. Absolutely nothing, but a crummy time stuck over night in an airport, due to heavy snow blocking the way to Colorado. Awww, poor Stephanie, again. On the other hand, Jesse and Rebecca. Finally, a chance for them to kiss, under the mistletoe . . . then after he gets his chance an old lady walks up and kisses him. Poor Jesse, is what I thought right then. Maybe it was his new haircut. But anyway, at least Joey tried to make Stephanie feel better about Santa Claus being there, until Michelle spilled the beans about this 'Santa' being Joey. But 'Santa' was there all along as Santa turned out to be a guest star, the person who played 'Boss Hogg' on The Dukes of Hazzard.moreless

    • Stephanie: Operator, if Santa's not listed, then give me the number for Mrs. Claus. Hello? Hello? How rude.

    • Joey as Santa: (disguised voice) Ho-ho-ho, Michelle!
      Michelle: Ho-ho-ho, Joey.
      Stephanie: No, Michelle, That's not Joey, that's Santa Claus. See?
      (the beard comes off a bit, revealing Santa's true identity: Joey Gladstone!)
      Stephanie: It IS Joey!
      Joey as Santa: (still in Santa voice) No, no, I'm Santa Claus. A lot of people across the world come up to me and say, Aren't you Joey Gladstone?

    • Stewardess: Your attention, please. The captain has informed me there's a heavy snowstorm in the Rocky Mountain Area, so we will be making an unscheduled landing.
      (every passenger (minus Jesse and Nick) moans in disgrace)
      Jesse and Nick: WHAT?!
      Stewardess: Sorry if I bummed you out.
      (in a baggage claim, the passengers run inside)
      Stephanie: Daddy, Daddy, we can't stay here.
      Danny: Don't worry, sweetheart. I'm sure we won't be here long.
      Stewardess: Ladies and gentlemen, due to this totally incredible blizzard, Flight 4-11, that's us, will remain grounded until morning.
      Jesse: What?!
      Stephanie: What did you say?!!
      Stewardess: So let me be the first to wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas.

    • Irene: Whoever designed these airplane bathrooms was NOT wearing pantyhose.

    • Jesse: What's the matter with you people? The first Christmas was in a Manger. They did okay! So what if we're stuck in this crummy dump?! Christmas isn't about presents, or Santa Claus, or cows! It's about a feeling.
