Have Yourself a Merry Winslow Christmas is episode thirteen of the second season in this television sitcom on Family Matters, that originally aired from ABC on December 21, 1990. It was directed by Richard Correll and written by David W. Duclon.
Steve is all alone for Christmas, his family having left him behind and the Winslows shutting him out after he breaks Laura's old-fashioned Christmas ornament. The nerd has also promised Richie that Santa will deliver him the season's hottest toy, Freddie Teddy, a story-telling teddy bear that Carl seems to have a little trouble securing. Eventually, Laura apologizes to Steve after she finds him feeling sad and alone in his basement, on Christmas Eve. She also invites him to spend Christmas with her and her family, and Steve accepts. Soon the Winslows learn there's nothing wrong with Steve still believing in Santa, especially when they discover his letter (with which he asked Santa to let him spend Christmas with the Winslows) and Richie is happy with his present.
