While it’s not as great as “In Excelsis Deo,” “Noel” is another outstanding Christmas episode of The West Wing. The back and forth between Josh and his traumatologist is Sorkin and Bradley Whitford at their finest. Many aspects of the episode culminate in a perfect way as Yo-Yo Ma closes out the Christmas party at The White House.

Official Description:
At Christmas time, Leo hires a traumatologist to force Josh to confront his unacknowledged stress resulting from when he was shot.

Join us tomorrow for a classic holiday episode of The West Wing and let us know what you thought of “Noel.”
