It’s nearly Christmas, which means that all the memories of Christmases we’ve watched our favorite TV characters enjoy are once more fresh on our minds. We can remember with fond nostalgia the magic of the Christmas celebration that Sabrina and her aunts enjoyed; the joy on the faces of Zach, Jessie, Kelly, and Slater as they held up their tree feels like it happened only yesterday; even memories as distant as when the tree fell on Fred and Barney are triggered anew as the holidays approach.
