The ultimate Christmas gift is not going to be wrapped under the tree this year. Instead, it is coming from none other than the media streaming superstar Netflix as they launch a Gilmore Girls revival on November 25th. Ever since the news became official in May, countless Stars Hollow wannabe’s have been eagerly anticipating the 4-part series, written by original creator Amy Sherman-Palladino.

With the news of the release, we have been feeling nostalgic for the holiday traditions of the residents of the quirky little town. Who can forget the epic Thanksgiving when Lorelai and Rory managed to fit four holiday meals into one day? And, the way Lorelai described the first magical snowfall of the season? Thinking about these Gilmore Girls events made us wonder how often the holidays were discussed in the beloved series.

While each of the original seven seasons has something akin to a dedicated holiday episode, it’s surprising how little the women address the main event! To satisfy our curiosity, we dug a little deeper and looked at each holiday episode from the show’s run, comparing how many times the word “Christmas” was used in the script versus the word “holiday”.

Check out the chart to see the breakdown.

Gilmore Girls Script

It turns out that everyone’s favorite mother-daughter show showed a preference for “Christmas” over any vague mention of the “Holidays”. Both words appear at least a handful of times throughout the years, but the script definitely favors Christmas cheer in the final season. While neither Gilmore seems to say the words much in the first 6 seasons, a single episode in the final season has actors saying “Christmas” 47 times!

No matter which holiday you celebrate this time of year, we hope you will be spending your December days surrounded by loved ones and enjoying everything the joyous holiday season has to offer.

UPDATE: Lorelai and Rory are sticking to their old ways in the Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life revival. After sorting through the four seasons of the mini-series, we discovered that the word “Christmas” was used a total of 10 times in the script for the reboot, while “holiday” was not spoken at all.
