Freeform 25 Days of Christmas 2016 Schedule

Hands down, my favorite part of the holiday season is the movie watching. Amidst the hustle and bustle of shopping and parties and preschool sing-a-longs, it’s wonderful to hit the pause button and collapse into a pile of fuzzy blankets to watch something festive.

Bonus points if you can do it as the snow falls and you twirl a candy cane in your hot cocoa. Maybe while sitting near a roaring fire? Too much?

PSH. It’s the holidays! No such thing as too much when it comes to cocoa and a warm fire.

Lucky for all of us, Freeform (formerly ABC Family) is kicking off the ‘25 Days of Christmas’ programming on December 1st!
