Every week the cast of Saturday Night Live makes the world laugh out loud, and the holidays are no exception. In fact, it seems the cast members and hosts bring their comedy A-game during the holiday season. Whether it's a classic SNL character getting into the Christmas spirit or a festive “Weekend Update” sketch, you can't help but feel merry and bright when watching some of the best SNL holiday sketches.
Each year it's just as fun to watch old favorites as it is to see what new ideas will spring from the comedic minds of the SNL cast members and writers. I could watch Stefon discuss the hottest holiday hot spots every day, and have no shame grooving along to the smooth sounds of “D*ick In A Box.” And who among us hasn’t wanted to try some Schweddy Balls?
The best part about these sketches, is they only take a few minutes to watch. So even if your holiday schedule is swamped and you can't commit to watching an entire episode, you can always fit in a few minutes to laugh at some of the best SNL holiday sketches.
