There seems to be a lot of contradictory information out there on whether the Christmas episode will be an episode or a special.
Or if the Christmas special will be a special or an episode.
Some official sources say one thing, some say another.
For now, as a placeholder, we're going to leave it as an episode. If it airs at a special time, has a special air length, has special/different opening credits, or some other variation that makes it... well, Special, it will get changed to a special.
You can submit to change it if you want... but you'll have your submission rejected and be directed here.
