Jessie Wiki
Where are you?
Luke and the other Ross kids video chatting with Morgan and Christina Ross

Christmas Story is the eighth episode in the first season of JESSIE. It first aired on December 9, 2011 to 4.01 million viewers.


When Christina and Morgan Ross get caught in a snowstorm, the family fears they won’t make it home in time for Christmas, so they tell Jessie and Bertram that they are both left with shopping for the kids' Christmas presents and getting the house decorated for the holiday. Zuri tells Ravi all about Santa. But Ravi thinks of Santa as the complete opposite of Zuri's description. Zuri says that Santa is like Bertram, but Santa likes his job, unlike Bertram. When Jessie takes the kids to the mall to see Santa, Ravi was petrified by him. Ravi even called him a "fat judgemental gnome who is obsessed with children and their naughtiness". And also, they have to get into a fight with a mischievous elf who is an undercover store detective and her name is "Officer Jingles". Luke intends to kiss Jessie under the mistletoe but instead, Jessie put a gift decoration on Luke despite the fact that he is underage for her. Eventually, Morgan and Christina Ross arrive home to spend Christmas with their children. And Luke quickly kisses Jessie right after she woke up while the Ross family was taking their family photo for Christmas.






Ravi: "A fat man is constantly spying on us? Is it just me, or is that really creepy?"

Zuri: "No, it's great! Because if you're good, Santa will bring you toys."
Ravi: "But, what if you are bad?"

Zuri: "Don't be."

Emma: "Luke, you did the popcorn cranberry pattern wrong."

Luke: (sarcastically) "Oh, I know. Now, I'll have to live with it for the rest of my life."

Jessie: "One time, I made a gingerbread house that wasn't up to code. It collapsed on a little gingerbread family... still haunts me."
Luke: (feigning fear) "Jessie! Help!"

(Jessie runs over to Luke)
Luke: "Ha! You're under the mistletoe!"

Jessie: "Ha! You're underage!" (sticks bow on his mouth)
Jingles: I'm store detective.
Luke: Oh! So if anything goes missing of the bottom two shelves, You're on it.


  • This is the first episode where Christina Ross and Morgan Ross appear since New York, New Nanny.
  • Ravi thinks that Santa Claus is a bad guy, similar to the Rugrats episode, "The Santa Experience", in which Chuckie thinks Santa is a bad guy, to.
  • Luke finally got his kiss from Jessie.
  • This is the last episode to air in 2011 and the only episode to air in December of that year.
  • This was the first holiday-themed episode of the series.
  • When Bertram says he won’t miss the kids he says “I won’t miss you, I won’t miss you and I think I’ll miss you least of all.” It’s a reference from the 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz when Dorothy was saying goodbye to The Scarecrow, The Tin Man and The Cowardly Lion.


  • If you look carefully at the laptop during the time when Morgan and Christina's video chat with the Ross kids, you can't see a webcam on the laptop, so there could be no way they would connect.
    • Unless the webcam was built in the computer.
