Most shows have Christmas, Halloween and New Year's Episodes not just Christmas episodes. Some even add in Thanksgiving and Hanukkah episodes although they tend to be a bit more rare. I find, at least to me, they add to the immersion/realism of the show despite not always being on at the right time in the real world. It used to be said Christmas was a religious holiday so it shouldn't be in TV Show but somewhere over the decades Christmas lost that religious context and became about "merchandising". It became more a business holiday than a religious one. This is where we stand now. There are some holiday eps I honestly could never do without though ...

Christmas - All Married with Children and Simpson's Christmas eps
Thanksgiving - WKRP in Cincinatti's Turkey Giveaway ep
New Year's - X-Files' /Millennium crossover episode (the Millennium finale)
