Family Holiday Movie Nights with ABC Family’s 25 Days of Christmas

19 11 2011

Each year I look forward to the special premieres of holiday movies and shows on the television!  Especially when it involves ABC Family’s 25 Days of Christmas.  Airing begins on November 20th through December 30th.  View the complete schedule here.

I can count on more than one hand why I love this television series!  Are you ready for the countdown?  Here goes:

  • Tradition.  Each year I look forward to ABC Family’s 25 Days of Christmas.  It has become a tradition in my household to watch the fun-filled shows.  The thing that makes these shows special is the fact that they are aired only once a year!  Some of my favorites include – Mickey’s Christmas Carol, National Lampoons Christmas Vacation, Holiday in Handcuffs and the list goes on and on.
  • Budget Conscious.  I am always looking for fun recreational ideas but sometimes they can be costly.  Recently I paid $12.75 for one movie ticket.  Viewing television shows is more cost efficient in my household (of course if you are not viewing a good number of movie/sports/etc. channels, you may want to consider lowering the price your cable package) versus frequenting the movie theater.
  • Togetherness.  The holiday season is a time to be around those you love.  I find the 25 Days of Christmas broadcast promotes holiday cheer for all ages.  And who doesn’t want to view fun-loving shows?  I do!
  • Family Fun.  Just as you would note an upcoming vacation on your calendar, pencil in the movie and time on the family calendar.  Label it as “family fun night”.  In preparing for the movie night, grab blankets and fun finger food (pizza, mozzarella sticks, popcorn).  Minutes before the movie starts grab the family, lie down the blankets and camp out in front of the television! 

Enjoy the shows!
