    • When Jesus uses the bladed throwing star to kill the villian false Pope Bill Donohue, this references what happened in the very very first existence of South Park titled "The Spirit of Xmas" but also misknown as Frosty versus Santa (misknown because Frosty is an evil monster who only pretends to be Santa but the actually title should be Frosty versus Baby Jesus) which was the very first Spirit of Xmas and fully hand drawn by Matt and Trey while in film school. This version preceded the later version also titled The "Spirit of Xmas" but which was done with the cardboard (like the first series of South Park episodes were created) and featured a fully grown Jesus battling Santa.

      In this very first original short the boys Stan and Kyle pray for Jesus to appear to save them from the Frosty monster (another allusion to Stan praying for Jesus to appear and save them in the Easter episode) and the baby Jesus appears out of the manger but with a full beard just as the fully grown Jesus has in the Easter Episode. The baby Jesus takes the halo from off his head and throws it a distance just like Jesus throws the throwing star in the Easter Episode and this cuts through and kills the evil Frosty monster. Again this is also an allusion that Jesus' halo is substantial as when in the Easter special when Jesus dies in the cell after Kyle stabs him his halo falls to the floor and makes a ringing sound like it is solid and metal.
