Ahh Christmas. The tree, the stockings, the mistletoe and – of course – the holiday television programming.
Some of my fondest Christmas memories were spent in front a of television watching such classics as the animated Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer or one of the myriad versions of Dickens’ ‘A Christmas Carol’.
So without further ado, I am presenting you with my big, big list of holiday specials. I’ve tried to categorize the list into subsections to make it a little more bearable and consumable. The list is in no particular order, though the first section, ‘essentials’, are (in my humble opinion) the cream of the crop. I should also note that I’ve only included programs for which I was able to find online videos so you’ll notice some glaring omissions (like ‘A Christmas Story’ and ‘Miracle on 34th Street).
In any event, here’s wishing you a great Christmas. Now sit back and dig into some of the best Christmas content on the web…
There’s even a nice list of Christmas commercials.Â And yes, Jimi, the Garfield Christmas Special is a part of this list.
