    Play Rocky Mountain Christmas, with Dolly Parton and Lee Majors.
    It’s been a favorite of mine (and many others) I’m sure, for many years. (I believe the movie’s from 1989)

    Thanks very much.

    It’s a shame that the classics are being taken off and replaced with movies that have no real class. Would love to see A smokey Mountain Christmas, Going My Way & White Christmas!

      I agree with Michelle Kendle. We miss good Christmas classics. A Smolket Mountain Christmas, Christmas Eve, Miracle on 34th street(thecoriginal), White Christmas, Going My Way, just to name a few. It seems that there could be a place to squeeze these in here and there.

    This is one of the greatest family Christmas Movie there is and am disappointed that it was not shown this year for the holiday season. It is a classic and should be shown every year

      I wish the smoky mountain Christmas movie was aired in tv around the holiday season. It’s a very family oriented Christmas movie, and a very good movie. I don’t know why, they don’t show it on TV anymore around Christmas time.

    Why do you not air this at night several times during December. It’s such a great movie. If not, we need to be able to buy in on a DVD. Who keeps this from airing

      I would love to see this every year. Christmas eve nite and every nite in December, this is a heart warming show about family. Not just romance as you all have been airing lately. 3-4 years you have not put this on. WHY?
