    This is a great site to reference what Christmas movies are out and to see if they are on TV and if the are possibly airing. However, unless I’m wrong this website doesn’t control the airing schedule of each individual television station or who sells what DVD. They just report what has been put out.

  • Lynn Molinari says:

    My favorite Christmas movie is “A Christmas Kiss” Why is it shown only once in October?! Certain movies are shown multiple times. So disappointing…..

  • Moma says:

    Why is “The Christmas Shoes” only shown once in October? That is one of the most beautiful Christmas movies I have ever seen. Also, is the follow up movie going to show this year.

  • Gloria Gonzales says:

    Why is the Spirit of Christmas wit Jen Lilley not scheduled to broadcast again this year? I had to leave home half way through. Please, will you broadcast it again?

  • Gina says:

    I agree with all the above, but have an addition. Will you air Holiday Switch this year?

  • Michele says:

    Hi-I’m having a hard time trying to find out when “A Gift Wrapped Christmas” is airing this year. Can you let me know if it will be on TV this year? I will be disappointed if it isn’t.

    Why is “Christmas Unwrapped” not shown after October 25? There are two months before Christmas. We are missing a great chance to see it.
