Last year's announcement of the History Channel program

But this airing of the Halloween special also means that the Christmas special will be re-airing in about a month!  I'm looking forward to that--and I hope you are too.  For those of you that missed it last year, this December will be another opportunity to catch it.  Of course, I'll let you know when it will be airing.  And, if you didn't already know:  I post daily Christmas TV listings on Twitter (@TistheSeasonTV) and on Facebook, on the page 'Tis the Season TV.'  So if you haven't already done it, you can follow those sites and receive updates on Christmas TV broadcasts.

Hallmark Channel's Countdown to Christmas movie schedule

If you're eager to watch those favorite Christmas specials and TV movies, you may already know that on-line schedules are beginning to go up.  The Hallmark Channel is beginning to broadcast their TV movies the first weekend after Halloween (starting Nov. 4th) in what they call the Countdown to Christmas.  And ABC Family is beginning to release details about the eventual line up for the 25 days of Christmas marathon.  (Click here for ABC Family's posting).

It's that exciting time of year when the holiday TV programming is beginning to look alot like Christmas!


  1. Set it to record, thanks for the heads up! I am excited for the next few days of Halloween programming and then the 2 months of Christmastime greatness! Woohoo!

  3. From the scary ensembles to uproarious cosmetics and from the spooky ambiances to the astonishing pumpkins, every single component is obligatory on the glad day of Halloween. On this party individuals are exceptionally sharp in harvesting their pumpkins into their patios so when the frightful celebration arrives, they can draw an assortment of countenances on their cut pumpkins and put these pumpkins in the background by including diverse neon lights inside them. Here look at some unnerving and simple Halloween pumpkin cutting layouts.
