Your One Stop Halloween TV Special Shop!

The evenings are getting cooler, and the winds of Fall are beginning to blow. (I would know...that darn wind is blowing my porch decorations everywhere!) It's the time of year that many of us begin to retreat into the warmth of our homes, cuddle up on the couch, and settle in for an evening of TV or movie entertainment.

If you're anything like me, then you love the holiday season for the special television shows that only come around once a year! I don't really consider myself a TV junkie, but my heart skips a little faster when I start to see advertisements for those cute, traditional, and sometimes cheesy holiday specials that air on all of the popular family networks. From classic Disney, to a how-to special with Miss Martha Stewart herself, I've compiled a list of shows for your family to enjoy together as we round the corner of this Halloween season.

Whew! So that's a start for you, haha. I will be adding more shows as they become available, and please make sure to let me know if there's one you know of that I've missed! To the best of my knowledge all of the times listed are Central, but make sure to check your local TV listings for those specials that you really don't want to miss. Better safe than sorry! Feel free to bookmark this page and check back often...especially on those October nights when you're bored and have nothing better to do, anyway. :) 

Here are a few of the network websites that you can check out for yourself for even more specials and information. In some cases I left out a few shows that were airing because they were either unfamiliar (and I'm not sure if they're kid-friendly), or they're not Halloweenish enough for me. But you may enjoy them!

So grab a bowl of popcorn and your favorite Halloween candies! Brew up some hot chocolate or some spicy cider, and get ready to retreat onto your cozy couch for a season of Halloween TV that the entire family can enjoy!

I hope you have time to do this for Christmas shows!

Haha, Litney. I was thinking about that...I'll probably do it, but I'm already dreading how LONG that's going to take! :)
