While “The Limo” isn’t specifically a Christmas episode, New Year’s Eve is often associated with Christmas time. “The Limo” is a ridiculously nuts episode that is just tons of fun, much like most of H.I.M.Y.M. So snag your “Get Psyched” mix and get ready to ring in the New Year with Lily, Marshall, Barney, Robin, and Ted.
Ted surprises his friends with a styling and well-planned out New Year’s Eve excursion around the Big Apple. As Lily, Marshall, Barney and Robin are chauffeured around town in a limo hired by Ted, the night takes some interesting twists and turns – and when the clock strikes twelve, Ted may end up getting that kiss he has been longing for.
Join us tomorrow for a classic holiday episode of How I Met Your Mother and let us know what you thought of “The Limo.”
