Christmas Trees

Christmas Trees

The tradition of the Christmas Tree dates back to 16th century Germany. The practice didn't catch on in the United States until the mid 1800s.
Travis Wester

Travis Wester

Travis Wester, who plays tech wiz Peter Weber, also played the part of Michelle Trachtenberg's twin brother in the movie "EuroTrip." Trachtenberg was the guest star in last season's holiday episode.
Jack Frost

Jack Frost

Eric isn't talking about "Jack Frost" the family-friendly 1998 film with Michael Keaton. He's referring to the 1997 film of the same name about a serial killer who is transformed into a snowman and goes on a murderous rampage.
A Christmas Carol

A Christmas Carol

It took Dickens about six weeks to write "A Christmas Carol." Tiny Tim and Bob Cratchit helped speed up the process. When Dickens wrote he “saw” his characters much like the way that young Ebenezer Scrooge saw the characters from the books he had read. As Dickens wrote "A Christmas Carol," he said that the Cratchits were “ever tugging at his coat sleeve, as if impatient for him to get back to his desk and continue the story of their lives."
Humbug

Humbug

The origin of the phrase "Humbug" is suspected to be between the years 1730 and 1740. Some of its definitions are, 1. Something intended to delude or deceive. 2. The quality of falseness or deception. 3. A person who is not what he or she claims or pretends to be; impostor. 4. Something devoid of sense or meaning; nonsense: a humbug of technical jargon.
Mr. Grinch

Mr. Grinch

In "You're a Mean One Mr. Grinch" the lyric "drives a crooked hoss" closely fits something we've seen Granger do on the show. In "Spoils of War," Granger expertly rode a horse through the Afghan wilderness (in a straight line, not crooked).

What does this ice rink remind you of? In the episode of the same title, Kensi compared her relationship with Deeks to a frozen lake-- a metaphor about the dangers of wanting something no matter the cost.
