A special episode of Schitt’s Creek was tacked on to the end of season 4. It’s called Merry Christmas, Johnny Rose and it has some nice Christmas scenes and Christmas spirit theme throughout. The episode is book-ended with 2 different vocal arrangements of “Silent Night”, both with the incomparable Catherine O’hara featured. The first arrangement is more quirky, and the closing version of Silent Night is traditional and very beautiful, performed by the Jazzagals.

The series is rated TV-MA, but this particular episode is low key when it comes to adult content. It contains very brief (blink and you’ll miss it), very mild references to drinking alcoholic beverages and to using prescription medication, all referenced in comedic dialogue but not shown on screen. You will understand this episode even if you don’t normally watch this award-winning series.

In this episode, Mr. Rose wants to throw a Christmas party as he had done when he was a millionaire. The trouble is that the family has lost all their money, and thus most of the family has also lost their Christmas spirit.

“We have to make new memories. We have to start looking forward, not backward.”

~ Johnny Rose

I’m a big fan of this show and was very happy when they released this episode to us in order to have a bit of Christmas in June. You can currently watch on Netflix, season 4, episode 13. It’s also available for purchase on Amazon (affiliiate link), where the episode title is just called Christmas.
