Holiday Guide: Holiday Movies & Specials on TV

We already let you know about showings of classic holiday movies in theaters in the western suburbs. Here's a chronological guide to holiday movies and specials on television over the coming three weeks. All times are Central. Note also that ABC Family is in the midst of its "25 Days of Christmas" promotion, but this guide only includes shows that felt especially like the holidays. In other words, no "Up" or "Finding Nemo." (Note: Updated Dec. 11.)

I might as well give up sleep now. First I have to delete some stuff off the dvr to make room for some new movies to record. I can already hear Judy Garland singing... Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas!

Ha! Yes, Jen ... I was just "cleaning out" our DVR last night. Goodbye "Wonder Pets" and "Word World" -- hello "Christmas in Connecticut!"

An Elf's Story (animated story of The Elf on the Shelf) will be on this Friday, Dec. 9th at 8:30 on CBS I believe as well. :)
