Upcoming Christmas Movies and TV Specials
A recent survey found that the way the average family spends their time together on Christmas is – watching TV. Almost EIGHT HOURS of TV. So if you want to cut back on arguments about what to watch, go over this list with your family and make a game plan for better viewing Merry Christmas.
Also, the times are CENTRAL TIME – so each show is an hour earlier than listed.
