22. In the early days of TV, I think seasonal episodes were avoided
two reasons

1) In a universe where time never advances having an event like Christmas (especially multiple times) conflicts with this. Today, we are more accepting of such irregularities and nobody seems to mind that we've seen a 10 year old boy who has been in 13 different halloween episodes.

2) In the early days of TV they didn't have the rich reservoir or rerun fodder that we enjoy today. So every episode had to be as rerunnable as possible. Xmas episodes are no good in May.
