About the episode
Kevin and Sean look back on Christmases' past to discuss the holiday hallmarks of their childhoods. Does the stuff that they loved about Christmas as kids stand the pop culture test of time, or have they outgrown it like a pair of footie pajamas? Listen to them as they stroll down memory lane and follow along with them as they play, Had It, Wanted It, or Hated It with the biggest Christmas toys from the 80s and 90s.
