This might sound a little...ok a LOT weird. But many moons ago, about the only time cable would show the Outlaw Josey Wales was starting Thanksgiving weekend and several times up until Christmas. This happened for a good number of years.
Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more. ---Theodor Seuss Geisel a.k.a. Dr. Seuss
