Countdown to 25 Days of Christmas on ABC Family Schedule

Friends, friends, friends, I'm as excited as a kid at Christmas....wait....it's about Christmas..NO WONDER! As I was reading my Christmas Newspaper this morning, I looked and one of the sections was "ABC FAMILY PRESENTS "COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS" STARTING NOVEMBER 18!" I dang near spit my coffee out! So, let me shut up and show it to you! By the way...I didn't write this....


IT’S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR, AS ABC FAMILY PRESENTS

“COUNTDOWN TO 25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS” STARTING SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 18

Burbank, CA (October 5, 2012) — ABC Family gives thanks with new holiday programming during the “Countdown to 25 Days of Christmas” from November 18 - 30, 2012. The annual event will include the world premiere of “Home Alone: The Holiday Heist” on Sunday, November 25 (8:00 – 10:00 PM ET/PT). ABC Family will also air an all-new holiday episode of the hit drama “The Secret Life of the American Teenager” on Monday, November 19 (8:00 PM – 9:00 PM ET/PT), plus the basic cable premiere of “Nanny McPhee Returns” on Friday, November 23 (8:30 – 11:00 PM ET/PT), and a special airing of “The Blind Side” on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 22 (8:00 PM – 11:00 PM ET/PT).



On Monday, November 19, an all day marathon of “The Secret Life of the American Teenager” airs from 11:00 AM – 8:00 PM ET/PT, leading into the premiere of a new holiday episode starting at 8:00 PM ET/PT. In “Hedy’s Happy Holiday House,” the gang find themselves celebrating the holidays at an abandoned toy warehouse when Kathy suddenly goes into labor. Meanwhile, Grace wishes for a Christmas miracle with Jack.



On Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 22 at 8:00 PM ET/PT, ABC Family will air “The Blind Side,” the true story of football star Michael Oher (Quinton Aaron), a homeless teen who's taken in by a compassionate woman (Sandra Bullock) and her family (Tim McGraw).



On Friday, November 23 at 8:30 PM ET/PT, it’s the basic cable premiere of “Nanny McPhee Returns.” A young mother (Maggie Gyllenhaal) is in desperate need of Nanny McPhee’s (Emma Thompson) magical help as she tries to raise her five children, a niece and a nephew while running the family farm. Be sure to catch the original “Nanny McPhee” at 6:30 PM ET/PT.



And on Sunday, November 25 at 8:00 PM ET/PT, it’s the world premiere of “Home Alone: The Holiday Heist.” Eight-year-old Finn (Christian Martyn) is terrified to learn his family is relocating from sunny California to Maine, and the scariest house he has ever seen! Convinced that his new house is haunted, Finn sets up a series of elaborate traps to catch the “ghost” in action. Left home alone with his sister while their parents are stranded across town, Finn’s traps catch a new target – a group of thieves (Malcolm McDowell, Debi Mazar and Eddie Steeples) who have targeted Finn’s house. Ed Asner co-stars. See how the “Home Alone” hijinks began with the original “Home Alone” airing on Saturday, November 24 at 8:00 PM ET/PT.

It has a Thanksgiving scene, and a Christmas card scene. Doesn't that count?

True at least gives it some merit but still no hope for charlie and chocolate factory which will be played over and over again.

Ok, so let me explain my "Christmas Newspaper".

On my ipad, I have a reader that allows you to design your own newpaper called Zite. This program will look for articles related to your key search words that you program in. There will usually be 3 or 4 articles, but in July I start getting about 15 a day and then around October it gets up to 30 or so and will only get better from here on out!
