30 Day X-Files Challenge Day 7: Favorite Season 6 Episode

This challenge was produced with the help of Sir Simon Milligan for the prompts!

The X-Files’ sixth season debuted on November 8, 1998.  My personal favourite season, this go-around brought us all kinds of shenanigans involving body-swapping, time-traveling, and mischievous Christmas spirits. Viewership and critical response was fairly consistent with season five.  This was also the season that infamously moved production from Vancouver to Los Angeles.
