A Saturday Night Live Christmas makes its return to spread the holiday cheer. The holiday-themed special will air some of the most memorable moments of SNL’s four decades of history.
This past weekend’s episode was this year’s Christmas episode and was hosted by Paul Rudd but did not feature a live studio audience due to rising COVID cases in New York. It was the last live show of the year, and SNL sent home several members of the cast and crew, planned special guests, and musical guest Charli XCX. There were several holiday-themed skits during the show.
