Bloopers: "Even the Christmas tree apparently originated as a Wicca tradition. Sometime around the eleventh century, the christian religion has appropriated for its own winter solstice holiday, Christmas."

That's not quite true.
The Christmas tree is often explained as a Christianization of the ancient pagan idea that the evergreen tree represents a celebration of the renewal of life. The modern custom, however, cannot be shown to be descended from pagan tradition directly.
The origins of the Christmas tree itself however can only be traced to 16th century Germany. The earliest reference is a Bremen guild chronicle of 1570 which reports how a small fir was decorated with apples, nuts, dates, pretzels and paper flowers, and erected in the guild-house, for the benefit of the guild members' children.

"Doors on either side of the club opened, and dozens of demons and vampires streamed out of the basement."

It has been clearly stated in 4x18 Bite me that demons and vampires do not deal with each other.
 
Random quote: But then her normally responsible sisters had been so busy lately distraction has become her number one personality trait.

Rating: humor: 2 out of 3 possible
tension: 1 out of 3 possible
story: 1 out of 3 possible
style: 1 out of 3 possible
 
Summary: 5 out of 12  
  The stories have not much to do with the wicca dates although. Each has one of the sisters as central character but leaves room for the others too.
Samhain can be considered the one with the most tension since although the ending is predictable. Imbolc is the most funny due to Paige's uncontrollable orbing but it lacks tension. Yule has a quite silly plot and the end is so predictable that there is no tension at all.
Fortunately the authors for once do without telling the story of the Charmed Ones to the reader as it is the habit in all other fiction books.
