For Angela being as religious as she is, I thought it was odd that one of the figurines Phyllis shoved into the drawer was baby Jesus. Isn't that not supposed to be placed out until Christmas day?

The opening prank with Jim wrapping Dwight's desk was hysterical, but as others have said, they always are. Jim is awesome.

I thought that Micheal led the intervention in a very uncharacteristically mature manner, actually. Ya know, if we put aside that the intervention never should've been happening at the office in the first place, I thought he was doing a pretty decent job.

Dragging her to rehab, though, and saying, "I'd like to make a deposit" was classic Michael, and hysterical.

I'm extremely curious to see how long Andy remains in the dark, now that everyone knows but him.

I can't remember right now, but was Michael there ot hear that? If he was, Andy will surely be getting ribbed about it sooner than later. Otherwise, ya, it will be interesting to see how long it takes for Andy to find out.

He every so often ends up being a decent caring guy.

Michael was not in the office. He was at rehab, trying to make a deposit.

I've never seen a nativity scene prior to Christmas without the baby Jesus. I don't know what the point of it would be without the central figure. There may be some people for whom that is their tradition, but I've been a Christian all my life and I've never heard of that.

I've always heard it/seen it done that baby Jesus only makes an appearance on the 25th.

That's how it was done at mass (grew up Catholic) but I think the nativity scenes around the house were always set-up with the full cast involved.

My grandmother and my mother have both always put out baby Jesus on the 25th and not before. I've never known it to be any other way.

That said, there's no nativity scene in my house, and likely never will be, so it's hardly a concern. Still, it's how I've always thought it was "supposed" to be. I guess, like many things, everyone does it differently.

Not everything is supposed to be funny.

This was an excellent episode. The last few minutes were particularly good.

As Zevida said, I think "the baby Jesus not being out until the 25th thing" is a Catholic tradition.

Yeah, cause, you know, Christmas hasn't been secularized even in the slightest.

Yeah, my Dad's a minister, and my parents have lots of manger scenes. Jesus always goes out right after Thanksgiving with all the rest of the characters.

Yeah, this episode did end on a down note, but that's part of the brilliance of the Office. It can mix comedy and pathos extremely well at times, taking you from belly laughs to winces to sheer uncomfortableness in a quick scene change. I thought this episode was one of the best that I've seen so far.

Good thing they didn't use the names Christeaster or Christoween, or I guess I couldn't celebrate those holidays either.
