All year round, Max offers every episode of the beloved NBC sitcom. However, if you need a break this holiday season, you can dive straight into the yuletide episodes for a festive binge.

As fans know, Friends Christmas episodes deliver many hilarious and cheerful moments from the show’s 10-season run — from Ross (David Schwimmer) and Monica’s (Courteney Cox) iconic dance routine to the Holiday Armadillo. There is one per season, with the exception of the first and last seasons.
