  • Fonzie just doesn't want to admit that he has no one to spend Christmas with. Thoughout the episode, we discover that Fonzie loves Christmastime more than most.

    This is one of the best episodes of all time-not just for Happy Days, but for all of TV, specifically a Christmas episode. You don't get many 30-minute episodes (as opposed to a lengthy two-hour movie) that pack such a punch with humor, timing, writing, acting, and most of all warm-heartedness. This is definitely where Fonzie begins to shine as a character in Happy Days, and shows also his vulnerable side. This is the pivotal point for the show that also shows depth and feeling, not just humor. There is also something about this episode being more personal during this season, before it was filmed live the following season, the results may not have been the same live, then again, maybe more dramatic. This definitely belongs in the best of Happy Days.
