Countdown to Christmas Specials

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams

How do I know what Christmas shows I watched as a child?  Quite simple, my mother calls me and reminds me.......usually 5 minutes after it starts! 

To make life a little simplier I have compiled a list of the major television networks and when they are playing all the beloved Christmas Shows.  Some are old favorites and some are new ones! 

 

Enjoy!

Watching these shows brings back so many memories. Watching them with your kids or alone - doesn't matter. And why is it that moms usually remember to remind us of things after the fact?  Hmmm...
