Hang all the mistletoe, I'm gonna get to know you better.

OK, not for a minute did I buy all the maneuvering and covering up that allowed the Brennan family Christmas. But the much anticipated Brennan-Booth kiss was pretty good, especially in the way it went from an uncomfortable joke on Brennan and Booth to a very uncomfortable moment for Caroline (the fine guest star Patricia Belcher), who had insisted on the kiss to begin with. And then came the excellent followup of having both Brennan and Booth recognize there was something significant in the kiss -- but stopping short of verbalizing what that was. "Bones" is smart that way.
