White Christmas is the thirteenth episode of A Different World's sixth season which was first broadcast on December 17, 1992.
Freddie's mother Joan, who is white and a real hippie of the '60s, comes to visit for Christmas and creates a stir. She gets the whole dorm chanting and feeling auras. Next, she unwittingly reunites Freddie and Shazade with their joint memories of trips together. As a result, she makes Ron feel left out since he's not a part of her whole transcendental mind-set. It gets so bad that when Ron sees Shazade kiss Freddie, he thinks he's lost her to him. Finally, Freddie, in frustration, tells Joan she wants a mother that acts like a mother, not like a girlfriend. In other words, time for mom to grow up!
