  • The animatic from the first act of this episode on "The Simpsons Christmas 2" DVD shows the following changes:
    • The power plant causes an "acid snowfall"
    • During the decoration montage, Marge hangs mistletoe and is soon kissed by Grandpa and Homer sets up a plastic deer on the front lawn, which is shot by Cletus and his redneck friends who plan to eat it.
    • During Krusty's holiday special, Krusty remarks Kent is getting last years' holiday meal pumped out his stomach.
  • The Astrolabe says that it's Margaret Cho's birthday, meaning that when Homer got it, it was December 5.
  • The text on bench in the couch gag is シンプソンズ? - "Simpsons" in Japanese



  • When Homer is watching "Santa Got Lost", after refusing to sleep with Marge, he is on the left side of the couch. When he disagrees with "Santa Got Lost" and turns it over, he is on the right side.
  • Luann Van Houten is shown sitting with Kirk, despite their divorce in "A Milhouse Divided".
  • In addition to giving Homer a DVD player, Carl also gives Homer the first season of Magnum, P.I., even though this episode aired in 2003 and the first season of Magnum, P.I. did not come out on DVD until 2004. However, it is still 2003 because Lisa mentioned it was Saturday, December 6 and December 6 was on an Saturday that year. Lisa also mentions that A Christmas Carol was written 160 years earlier. That is 1843, which is exactly 160 years before 2003.
  • The Nahasapeemapetilon Family is seen celebrating Christmas, even though it is not typically observed by Hindus.
