Wondering what the Christmas specials are this year, and when they air? No fear! We’ve got a list of our favorites right here for you!

For most of us, the air is getting a little colder (did someone order some ARCTIC AIR MASS?) and our bank accounts are getting a little slimmer with all the gift buying going on. So what is one to do during the small amount of downtime one has? How about sit in front of your TV with some tea, warm cider, or hot chocolate to watch a Christmas special? Maybe you even have a special someone to sit and veg out with. #NoShame

Nothing says HAPPY HOLIDAYS like specialized television for the season. Some of our favorite shows have gone on fall breaks, and others are getting ready to break for all the holiday mumbo jumbo… So you may be thinking you don’t have ANYTHING to watch.


We’ve come up with a pretty awesome list of all the different specials you can tune into (or record for later watching… and fast forwarding through all the BUY ME BUY ME BUY ME commercials…) from Freeform’s 25 Days of Christmas, The Victoria’s Secret Paris Fashion Show, to Christmas Eve and Christmas Day NFL football and 24 hours of A Christmas Story, we have a total lineup of some of the best holiday TV this season.

So, get your shopping done early and clear out your DVR!
