Freeform’s (ABC Family) Countdown To The ’25 Days Of Christmas’ Starts In November — Here’s The Schedule

As sure as holiday ads appear on TV well before Thanksgiving, so too will Freeform (formerly ABC Family) release its annual “25 Days of Christmas” movie list. And we much prefer the Christmas movies.

This year, the network is starting its countdown-to-the-countdown movie programming well before Turkey Day. Between Nov. 18-30, you can get a jump on watching some of your Christmas favorites like “Home Alone,” “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation,” and “Elf.”

Mark your calendars now — and bookmark the  “25 Days of Christmas” movie calendar below.
