Most of it is okay and I love tuning in, but the Harry Potter showings got a tad old last year. Looking forward to more Christmassy things.

It makes me happy to know that wheels are turning to bring us Christmas 2008 shows. Plus - what was that I read about the "Countdown to 25 Days of Christmas"? Does that mean that the 15 days before December 1st, 2008, will have Christmas programs? Or Thanksgiving AND Christmas programs? So I guess that will be from November 15, 2008 on... Good!

How cool is this??? Even though some of the shows aren't really Christmas related, it's still good to see a "25 Days Of Christmas" schedule being planned in MAY!!!!! Something to look forward too!

If you nget it in your area, I've found The Hallmark Channel to be far superior to ABC Family in new Christmas content... yeh, some of it is a tad "low budget" for my tastes, but it's ALL Christmas in December and my wife and I can usually find at least ONE "Hallmark original movie" a week to watch... usually when ABC is running Harry Potter or Polar Express for the umpteenth time ...

But you still need ABC Family for all the Rankin/Bass stuff...

I agree with George, that the holiday movies on the Hallmark channel are great! I have recorded a number of these to DVDs over the last couple of years.
That being said, the ABC movie Snow 2 brain freeze sounds interesting. (as I thought Snow was a somewhat different and enjoyable holiday movie!)

I can't wait, and it's hard to believe I am saying this I don't have to wait much longer, we are close to 6 months away.



I now I am only 10 days from starting the planning of Christmas 2008 for my family.
