Is the tradition of 'Christmas specials' a purely British phenomenon?
I know that when US series are on air, they will quite often produce a Christmas episode to co-incide with the festive season, but what about those shows that are not showing over the winter months? Do any other countries re-assemble the cast, in the style of 'Gavin & Stacey', 'Doctor Who' and many other shows for a one-off Christmas special? Or indeed, are there any one-off dramas (like Northern Lights) produced especially for Christmas elsewhere in the world?
