- This is the first Power Rangers Christmas episode since Zeo's A Season to Remember.
- This is the first time two back to back Power Ranger episodes act as clip shows reviewing the season up to that point. Party Monsters, which aired just before Halloween in 2011, was also a clip show but from the perspective of the Nighlok while this episode features the normal formula of rangers reflecting on their adventures to that point. It's also the first clipshow episode to feature flashback from secondary characters as Bulk and Spike also recall their adventures on the show to this point.
- While decorating the tree Mike can be seen covered in ribbons which are the colors of all the six rangers.
- Rick Medina (Deker) has been removed from the opening credits.
- Antonio Garcia did not appear in this episode (only in a flashback). It is assumed he is home with his family which he left to join the rangers.
- Like Party Monsters. This Has No Shinkenger Counterpart
- This is the last episode in Samurai where Mia and Emily keep their hair curly.
