There are a lot of great things about today: First off, it's Friday, and that's always wonderful to remember. Secondly, we're one day closer to the return of Community on January 2nd, 2014, and NBC has just released a new, amazing promo to remind us all of that. Thirdly, said promo is an animated, Christmas-themed clip that features the whole gang.

Some worthwhile questions the promo inspires: Does this mean we're getting an animated episode at some point this season? We can only hope—after all, with Dan Harmon back at the helm, anything is possible. And what is happening with Troy?

Check out the promo above. AHH COMMUNITY IS ALMOST BACK.
