Glee: Season 2, Episode 10 :: A Very Glee Christmas
This week’s Christmas-themed Glee episode ("A Very Glee Christmas" (Season 2, Episode 10)) begins with the glee club singing carols around a tree decorated with ornaments and empty wrapped boxes (all of which have been stolen). Mr. Schu decides to teach the kids a lesson about helping others, and encourages the club to sing to different classes around school in order to raise money for other kids who need presents at Christmas.

Not surprisingly, the glee club’s popularity has not risen since their win at sectionals, and their fellow classmates are less than enthused to hear them sing during class time. In order to raise the money they need they decide to sing to the teachers instead.
Brittany is full of Christmas spirit, and reveals to Artie that she still believes in Santa. When the glee club visits Santa at the mall, she says the only thing she wants for Christmas is for Artie to walk. The rest of the club teams enlist the help of Coach Beiste to tell Brittany that Santa won’t be able to make Artie walk again. Brittany is crushed and her Christmas spirit is ruined. In the end, Artie is able to walk again for a short time with the help of some new technology, and the Christmas spirit is restored.
Things are still rocky between Finn and Rachel since Finn found out that Rachel and Puck kissed. Rachel tries to win him back with a song, but Finn is not impressed. She tries again when the two go out Christmas tree shopping, and they sing a lovely duet of “Last Christmas” that ends with a kiss. Finn immediately gets angry and tells Rachel that they are officially broken up. But, by the end of the episode, they are once again exchanging longing looks.
