My family loves this DVD. I think that its okay. I did not really grow up liking The Simpsons but my family sure does. It does show the meaning of Christmas in some of the episodes.
Please view the disk before reviewing it.

"I have the disk bought it September 30th. The reviews I read so far are from those who have not viewed the dvd and those folks don't even have the dvd features correctly. People please wait til you have an item in hand before reviewing it.Here's the line-up:
Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire
Miracle on Evergreen Terrace
grift of the Magi
She of Little Faith
Mr Burns Finest Moments FeaturetteI viewed half of it so far. You get 5 episodes and 1 special featurette. You get Christmas (or snow) related episodes all on one disk. These people who are writing think that everyone is going to go out and purchase each seasons box sets at $40 each. Hello people?!?!? I for one am glad that Fox has put out single disks with episodes on it. And most of these episodes have not been released yet on DVD.I salute the idea of a special Christmas DVD. Bet next year a volume two comes out. Getting all these episodes for such a low price was a great deal. And one of my favorite Simpsons episodes, Mr Plow, is included. My only gripe is that the Mr Burns featurette is only 3 minutes 20 seconds long. If you are thinking of buying this dvd for the featurette don't.Highly recommend for everyone except maybe those that will buy every Simpson box set that Fox puts out."
Great Episodes, But We Want More!

"One reviewer wrote, "I salute the idea of a special Christmas DVD. Bet next year a volume two comes out." I also salute the idea of a special Winter-themed DVD, but I *hate* getting a DVD with only five episodes on it, crossing my fingers that maybe they'll release a "volume 2" at some point! Come on, folks, what the heck are we waiting for? I'm not getting any younger, you know.This set gets five stars because I love the Simpsons, and yes, Mr. Plow is one of the Best. Episodes. Ever. But still, that episode will be out when season 4 comes out. Are we really going to have to wait another year for season 4? This is a really sneaky way to extract even more dollars from us, Fox Home Entertainment. I wonder how many sales you're losing due to making consumers angry..."
Is it worth it?

"For $13.50 you get 5 episodes - one of which (the first Xmas special) is already on the Season One DVD and another (Mr Plow) which will be on Season Four (whenever they release it). Marge Be Not Proud (Bart gets busted for shoplifting at x-mas) was left off for whatever reason. The only special feature is a Mr Burns featurette. It's much like the Kodos and Kang featurette on the Treehouse of Horrors dvd - nothing special by any means. I also found the response time on the menu screen annoyingly slow as it is on the THoH dvd. But it is only $13.50. If you just like to enjoy Simpsons episodes on dvd in all their uncut splendor and clarity then it's a good cheap temporary fix while we wait for Season 4."
