The Vicar of Dibley - The Christmas lunch incident - absolute classic and everything about it hilarious. Curtis at his best.
One Foot in the Grave - all Christmas specials are wonderful.
Men Behaving Badly - Jingle Balls
Father Ted - Christmassy Ted.
Blackadder - Christmas Carol

I'd agree that Blackadder wasn't fondly remembered in general - personally I'm on your side and think it's top, but I don't think it the public in general has anything like the fondness for it as they do the rest of the series.
One Christmas episode I'd like to throw in the ring (wasn't a special as it was part of the regular series) is the Peep Show Christmas episode where Mark's family come to the flat on Christmas Day - probably the best British Christmas themed comedy since The Office. Certainly the most realistic, with all the family arguments. Hope they use Mark's dad again in the final series.
Final series, when?

Among my favourites...
Gavin and Stacey Christmas Special
Father Ted Christmas Special
Only Fools and Horses Specials are pretty good, some better than others
Extras Christmas Special
The Office Christmas Specials
Mrs Brown's Boys Christmas Specials
Last of the Summer Wine also did some good Christmas episodes but some were better than others.
The Royle Family Specials
I am not a fan of Mrs Brown's Boys, but for some reason, the Christmas specials always go down well with me and I'm a sucker for the whole Christmas set-up. Works very well for this show.
