Fans were terrified when reports surfaced that the show would be leaving in January, buy luckily, the streaming service announced that would be hosting it for at least one more year.

Also, Rachel quits her job because she is sick of serving coffee all day, and instead she gets a job in the fashion industry where she serves coffee all day.
“The One With The Girl From Poughkeepsie”
Season 4, Episode 10

“The One With The Inappropriate Sister”
Season 5, Episode 10
Originally aired: December 17, 1998
This Christmas episode of Friends is fantastic because it sees Phoebe trying to collect money for charity while dressed as Santa’s elf, and things do not go as planned.
Holiday-related content aside, this episode is the one where Rachel dates a guy who has an uncomfortably close relationship with his sister, and it's hilariously hard to watch how things play out.
“The One With The Routine”
Season 6, Episode 10
Originally aired: December 16, 1999
Ross and Monica finally get their chance to shine when they are invited to appear at the taping of Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve.

"The One with The Creepy Holiday Card" or "The One with Ross's Step Forward"
Season 8, Episode 11
Originally aired: December 13, 2001
Another all-time classic episode is this one where Ross tired to avoid a joint Christmas card with his girlfriend Mona — cause, you know, that would be to much commitment — by giving a key to his apartment.
He then gets caught trying to change the locks on her.
“The One With The Holiday Armadillo"
Season 7, Episode 10
Originally aired: December 14, 2000
An argument could be made that the Holiday Armadillo episode of Friends is actually the best one ever.

Season 9, Episode 10
Originally aired: December 12, 2002
While it is technically considered a clip show, this final Christmas-themed episode of Friends still has some holiday spirit.0comments

In the end, a Christmas miracle occurs in the form of Chandler quitting his job and going home for the holidays.
