I got tired of trying to find a simple list of Christmas TV specials for the kids this year, so I went ahead and compiled my own.

santatvAll times are Eastern Standard Time.  You should probably check your local listings to be sure regional events and sports broadcasts are not preempting some of these specials.  Run through the list, set your DVR and give your kids something to watch while you’re frantically taking care of last minute holiday tasks.  The list is designed to be somewhat readable on mobile devices as well.

Feel free to share, bookmark and leave comments about any other specials you’d like to see listed.

Enjoy!
