25 Days of Christmas - (1) - 2011 Holiday Television Schedule


In honor of the babies' second Christmas, and the fact that I am obsessed with all things Christmas (and that I am also obsessed with the babies learning all in the next month about it) I thought this year it would be fun to post about all kinds of Christmas related things each day. Most will be kiddo related, but some won't be.

I am already ahead of the game this year on Christmas television programs. I made it a mission this year to find and record every Christmas-related tv program that I think the babies would enjoy (and, ahem...me). It seems every year that I miss the shows, and I finally figured out it's because they start showing them at the beginning of December, and I'm usually looking for them to be on closer to Christmas (huh, crazy I thought they would show them at Christmas - silly me, lol)

While you can keep it on Lifetime and catch every made-for-tv Christmas movie ever made, my list is really to focus more on the specials more kid-friendly. The kiddos so far this year have watched How the Grinch Stole Christmas and Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer. Christmas is going to be so fun this year!!

So, here ya go! This year's 2011 Christmas TV Schedule.
