Christmas Viewing Traditions


Around this time every year holiday specials are broadcast on various television channels.  Some cartoons are televised more than once on different channels.  I've heard that one channel plays "A Christmas Story" over and over again on Christmas day. I can't say for sure if this the case as that's one holiday program I try to avoid along with the various Home Alone movies. 

My family members each have their favorite Christmas movies that they make sure to watch every year.  My mother's must watch program is "White Christmas" with Danny Kaye and Bing Crosby. One sister's must watch program is the original "Miracle on 34th Street," another sister's is "Eloise at Christmastime," another sister's is "Elf" with Will Ferrell.  My oldest sister's must watch program is "It's a Wonderful Life." (Yes, I have a lot of sisters.)  I've never seen the entire movie of "It's a Wonderful Life" even though it's broadcast so often during this time of the year.  I'm going to try to watch the whole thing this year.



For me, my favorite, must watch program is "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer."  It just doesn't seem like Christmas if I don't watch it. 

How about you?  Do you have a particular must watch program that you watch every year?

    1. I don't think I'm familiar with Christmas in Connecticut. I'll have to try and find it so I can check it out. Hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday season.

  2. I can't seem to help myself from watching A Christmas Story multiple times every year. :)
