"The Best Part of Christmas" is the opening number in the Big City Greens episode "Green Christmas". It is performed by the Green Family members who all voice their love for the holiday for one reason or another. Cricket, for the presents and gifts, Tilly, for the love and cheer, Bill, for the annual Christmas traditions, and Gramma Alice and Nancy for spending time together, though Alice mentions being visited by three ghostly spirits every year.

The episode ends with a reprisal that summarizes everyone's feelings about Christmas after all the conflicts have been resolved.

Lyrics

Cricket:
Oh the best part of Christmas is the presents that I get,
Like an action figure robot or a sweet toy jet.
You can talk about your carols and your Christmas tree.
But the best parts of Christmas are all the gifts for me!

Tilly:
Or maybe the best part of Christmas is when people do good,
And they all spread kindness for the sake of brotherhood!
You can talk about your reindeer and your shelf-bound elf,
But holidays are best when folks don’t think just of themselves!

Bill:
The best part of Christmas is my loving family!
When we all gather ‘round and trim the living room tree,
And the dining table tree,
And the bedroom tree,
And the basement tree,
And the secret tree,
And the bathroom tree too!
(Cricket: "Seriously dad?")
And this year we're all together, 'cause your mom is back!
Cricket and Tilly: Woo hoo!

Nancy: "Hey kids! What'cha'll doin'?"

Cricket: We're just singin' 'bout Christmas
Cricket and Tilly: Would you like to add a line?
Nancy: "How are you doing this? Did you plan this in advance?"
Bill: You could sing about your eggnog or the
Bill, Cricket and Tilly: Smell of winter pine!
Nancy: "Well I didn't prepare lyrics, so let’s just dance!"
{Piano solo}
Cricket: "Wait, where's grandma?"

Gramma:
The worst part of Christmas are those three stupid ghosts,
Who come clanging in the night to bang on your bedposts,
They tell you you're a scrooge and a grumpy mean old hag,
Scram, ya dumb ol' spirits I don’t need to hear ya nag!

Cricket: "Hey, what's goin' on?"
Tilly: "Are you alright, Gramma?"
Bill: "Uh, What?"
Nancy: "Okay?"

I mean, uh
Merry Christmas!

Cricket and Tilly: Merry Christmas!

Bill: Merry Christmas!

All: From the Greens!

Nancy: "Seriously, was there like an email about this? How did you...?"

Lyrics

Cricket: Oh the best part of Christmas it ain’t the gifts you get!
Tilly: It's not the model rocket or the robot pet!
Gramma: It's not the things you give,
Nancy: (spoken) Even though that's what you’d think,
Cricket: And it's not when giant Christmas trees destroy the whole ice rink!

Bill: "Huh?"
Cricket: "Uh, nothing! Keep going!"

Bill: It's not the basted ham, with gravy and the trimmings!
Tilly: It's kinda like what I said in the song at the beginning!

Bill: The best part of Christmas it ain’t the candy canes!
Tilly: Or drawin' little pictures in the frosted window panes!
Cricket: Or decoratin' cookies with the sprinkles and the frosting!
Gramma: It ain't the stupid ghosts,
Nancy: (spoken) And it sure ain't all the shopping.

Cricket: It's not meeting Santa at his workshop at the mall,
Tilly: It's when we wish each other...
All: Merry Christmas, one and all!

Cricket: "Merry Christmas!"

Trivia

  • The dance in the middle of the song is a reference to the famous dance scene in A Charlie Brown Christmas.
  • Alice's "worst part of Christmas" is, of course, a reference to A Christmas Carol, which is ironic as she seems to enjoy the holiday.
  • The "shelf-bound elf" is a reference to the famous Elf on a Shelf toy and story that is notable for its creepy appearance.
