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."

"I loved "The Simpsons" right from the first episode I ever watched (1997's "The Cartridge Family"), and I already have the first season on dvd (hope to be getting the other 2 really soon). Anyway, I got "Christmas With The Simpsons" on Christmas, and I admit that I hadn't laughed that hard in ages. The show's witty humor comes out full - throttle, and every episode is sure to warm your heart.The first episode of the dvd is possibly the most significant episode in the series. "Simpsons Roasting On An Open Fire" was the very first episode of the series. It aired originally on December 17, 1989, and television hasn't been the same since. In this premiere, Bart gets a tattoo. Homer must spend the Christmas money to get it removed, but he's not worried because he has his Christmas bonus to look forward to. Until his boss Mr. Burns decide to cut it. Their Christmas in limbo, a friend recommends that Homer go to the racetrack to bet on dogs. But he bets on the loser, a mutt named Santa's Little Helper. But the day is saved when Homer and Bart adopt the dog, and it's the best Christmas present they ever got."Mr. Plow" really has nothing to do with Christmas, but it's still my favorite episode. Homer starts a successful snow plow business called Mr. Plow. He makes a goldmine of cash. His best friend Barney Gumble thinks that by copying Homer, he too can be a successful human being. It turns out that Barney's business, Plow King, is even more successful than Homer's (Linda Ronstadt even appears in a comercial for it). Gripped by jealousy, Homer pulls the ultimate revenge plot on Barney. But soon, he realizes what he did was wrong and saves his life. My favorite episode."Miracle On Evergreen Terrace" is my seconnd favorite. Waking up early to get first dibs on presents, Bart accidentally burns down the Christmas trees. With the gifts turned to a fiery ash, Bart burries the remains in the front yard and says that burglars stole everything. The town feel sorry for them and, in a direct take - off of "It's A Wonderful Life", gives them gifts and money. But soon, the truth is discovered and the town takes all their stuff."Grift Of The Magi" ties with "Simpsons Roasting on An Open Fire" as my favorite. Bart is put in a wheelchair, forcing Springfield Elementary to build a ramp for him. But the school is unable to pay for the construction. A corporation takes over the school. Much to Lisa's dismay, they stop teaching and ask kids rediculous questions about toys. Lisa and Bart soon discover that they are using the kids to help design Funzo, the perfect Christmas gift. They soon dicover that Funzo is programmed to destroy all other toys. The kids go off to save the day - with help from Homer and special guest Gary Coleman, of course."She Of Little Faith" is my least favorite because it has Richard Gere. Homer and Bart destroy the town's church with a model rocket, and Mr. Burns turns it into a casino. Lisa is disgusted and becomes a budist with Gere's help. The end.I highly recommedn this dvd. It will fill your stocking with holiday spirit!"
