2011 Christmas TV Guide

Welcome, friends! One of my absolute favorite things to do around Christmas time is to pop some popcorn or grab a plate of cookies and some cocoa and sit back for an evening of holiday classics on TV. There's nothing quite like feel good movies that warm you from the inside out when it's freezing cold outside! So I've compiled a list of some of the best in holiday viewing this Christmas season, starting on Thanksgiving Day. I hope you'll find it helpful when deciding which shows to watch over the next month!
