When Do Christmas Shows Air on TV? Your 2013 Holiday TV Guide

If you’re like me, holiday TV shows are just as much a Christmas tradition as is opening presents on Christmas morning. If you want to find out when Rudolph, Grinch and all of your other favorite shows come on TV, here’s your TV guide to holiday and Christmas shows.

This isn’t a complete list, but more some of the classics that most people will be wanting to watch like Charlie Brown Christmas, Polar Express and, one of my favorites, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. Most play multiple times so I included as many as I could find. I wouldn’t be surprised if most of these play more than is listed below.

Most of these are on ABCFamily so you may want to set that channel up as your default channel during the holidays.
