We’re celebrating Seinfeld‘s first Christmas on Netflix! Welcome to your guide as to how to watch every Christmas and Thanksgiving episode of Seinfeld on Netflix globally.
Seinfeld didn’t have its first Christmas episode until Season 3, and it skipped the holiday altogether in Season 5. Season 6 has the only Thanksgiving episode.
In the mood for more Christmas episodes? We have covered all the Christmas specials for The Office (no longer available in the US) and Friends Christmas episodes (no longer available in the US) and will be doing more sitcoms throughout the holiday season.
