There are two kinds of people during the holidays; those that love Christmas shopping and those that hate Christmas shopping. I am one of the former – it is one of my favorite things about the holidays!

I mean our LIVES revolved around some of these shows. If someone wanted to make plans with me at 8 p.m. on a Thursday night in the late 90s they had better be planning to watch FRIENDS with me, amiright?

Before I was a teenager and “too cool” to stay home on Friday nights, watching the TGIF line-up on ABC was something I looked forward to all week. Besides the programming being some of the most wholesome, hilarious and family-friendly content ever, my family and I had very specific traditions on Friday nights to accompany this world-class TV lineup. Traditions that are missed, and now, thanks to the magic of Hulu, traditions that all of us can re-create now! Read more
