Ross Geller's Holiday Armadillo Is the Hanukkah Hero We Need Right Now

  • If you need some good Hanukkah-adjacent heroes to balance out the glut of Christmas chatter, look no further than Friends, Season 7, Episode 10: "The One with the Holiday Armadillo." It's a comedy classic.

    Ross (David Schwimmer) can't find a Santa Claus suit, so instead he goes all in on the concept of The Holiday Armadillo, "Santa's representative for all the southern states," to teach his son Ben about Hanukkah. Things get hinky when Chandler (Matthew Perry) shows up, having found a Santa suit and thinking Ross is dressed as Weird Turtle Man.

    Then, somehow, Joey eventually saves the day as Superman.
