Need to know when your favorite Holiday special is coming on?

This time, we all wait anxiously for our favorite Holiday specials. And we get really upset when we miss them. Here is your first list...

Along with holly and mistletoe, another great Christmas tradition  includes families gathered around  the warm glow of a TV to watch much beloved Christmas movies and TV specials.

This year, watch for a select group of U.S. stations  specializing in everybody's favorite Christmas gems - such as CBS for animated specials, TMC for movies, or Freeform (formerly known as ABC Family) for the big mix of movies, specials and animated tales.

It's a Wonderful Life on NBC Christmas Eve?  The 24-hour A Christmas Story marathon on TBS? We've got it covered. 

It's nice to know that some things never change, especially around the holidays. But what else is happening around TV land  this Christmas?

As always, NBC will  herald the arrival of the holidays at the 86th  lighting of the world's most famous Christmas tree. Stay tuned for the "Christmas in Rockefeller Center" 2018 telecast on Wednesday, November 28, 2018 with live performances by top musical talent from 8–9PM ET.              

And speaking of beloved holiday traditions, watch for the movie classic "It's a Wonderful Life" to air on NBC on Christmas Eve, December 24, 2018 at 8PM ET. Meanwhile, the annual kickoff of the 24-hour "A Christmas Story" marathon on TBS begins at 8PM ET as well, with continuous showings through Christmas day.              

In the further race for holiday ratings,  the Hallmark Channel  once again promises hours of programming devoted to Christmas movies and specials in 2018.          

 And,  for more holiday  viewing the whole family can look forward to Freeform's "25 Days of Christmas", beginning December 1.
