  • What I have found in all of the TV channels for the past 4 or 5 yrs. is that each channel will show their newest productions of the yr. during daytime & early evening hrs. Then they will show the Christmas movies that people have stated as “their favorites” at any time between midnight to 6 or 7 the next a.m. In the beginning, I thought I was just imagining this practice but by the end of the 2nd yr., I noticed the obvious pattern. I no longer watch any of the current yr. (2018) Christmas movies on any channel. I personally find that the writing & producing of the earlier movies to be of a higher type & more of a “good feeling” & appropriate comic quality than the newer ones.

    My opinion.

    I also would like to see some of the old Christmas movies that make you feel good about the season. There seems to be way too much degradation of the holiday with nasty/crude/stupid movies, that are repeated so many times during the season. Why not have more diversity?????

  • Fran Shoemaker says:

    Why do you air the new movies 300 times before Christmas until I am sick of them? Where are the older ones that I loved. My favorite was always the Season for Miracles which seems to be thrown away as do a lot of the older sometimes better movies. There is so much time before Christmas and two channels that you should be able to show a lot of the older movies along with the new ones. Very disappointed!!

    I love Christmas movies, but what happen to fantasy movies about Santa Claus, miracles, not just movies about people falling in love during the holidays. I like Freedom much more than Hallmark Channel that one kiss @ the end of this movies drive me freaking crazy. I want more and more people of color we do Christmas also, not just white people. I would also like to see more Christmas cartoons old and new kids really like this( I mean me really). Thanks

  • joe says:

    Why is there no MISER BROTHERS CHRISTMAS on any schedules this year?

  • Tracey says:

    I’m disappointed that so many in countdown and 25 days of Christmas are not entirely Christmas and you don’t play any of the older ABC Family original Christmas movies. Always love Three days, Christmas List, etc.

  • San says:

    When will The Christmas Wish with Debbie Reynolds and Neil P. Harris air? Have not seen movie in years.

  • Kati Liptrap says:

    Really need to show ‘Three Days’ again this year

  • Wren Marshall says:

    I see that How the Grinch Stole Christmas will be back on again in 2017. My family was very disappointed that it was not on in 2016. Will this be the Ron Howard ( Live Action ) version like what was aired in 2014 and 2015? That one is the best, because it has all the deleted scenes that the 2000 version does not. ABC Family was the only one to have this movie.

  • Mrs. Collins says:

    Why is Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer not in either list to be aired? The countdown to 25 days of Christmas or 25 days of Christmas? That is one of mine and my 2 daughters favorite Christmas specials we look forward to seeing every year.

  • Amanda says:

    Why does “25 Days of Christmas” begin in November and actually only last for 13 days? Is it just me or does that seem odd?

    • Christmas TV Admin says:

      Hi Amanda, this is the schedule for the “Countdown to 25 Days of Christmas” not the actual “25 Days of Christmas” itself. Freeform/ABC Family counts down to to December with two weeks of holiday movies. Hope that helps! 🙂

  • Patrick says:

    Why do you not play both versions of DR. Soose’s How The Grinch Stole Christmas?

    • Christmas TV Admin says:

      Hi Patrick, currently NBC owns the right to air the original Grinch on TV:
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dr._Seuss%27_How_the_Grinch_Stole_Christmas!_(TV_special)

      The half-hour (with commercials) short was originally telecast in the United States on CBS on December 18, 1966. CBS repeated it annually during the Christmas season until 1988. It was then aired on various other networks multiple times a season. In the 1990s and 2000s, it was primarily seen on Turner-owned properties (TBS, TNT, and Cartoon Network), and later ABC and ABC Family. On August 13, 2015, NBC announced that the special would move to that network, which would air it twice during the Christmas season under a three-year licensing deal with Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution.
