"Mary Christmas" is the sixth Christmas episode of the NBC sitcom Frasier, aired as the eighth episode of the show's eighth season (though it is the season's fifth episode in production order).


It is nearly time for the Seattle Christmas Parade, and Frasier, who as a child viewed it as marking the official start of Christmas, is keen to cohost the KACL coverage with Kelly Kirkland. He ingratiates himself by inviting her for a meal at his apartment, and prepares dishes that have been featured in her Channel 6 show. She is very happy to give him the job, but the following day she announces that she has food poisoning and is unable to host at all. Suddenly, he finds himself cohosting with Mary Thomas ("Dr. Mary"), recently returned to KACL by popular demand.


The episode was made available on the Frasier: The Complete 8th Season DVD set, released by Paramount Home Entertainment on June 13, 2006. It will make its high-definition debut on the Frasier: The Complete Series Blu-ray set, to be released on November 8, 2022.
