Are you in full-on holiday mode yet? Like listening to Christmas songs non-stop and watching all your favorite Christmas movies and Hallmark Christmas movies? Don't forget about one of our favorite holiday traditions though: watching Christmas TV specials. You'll want to watch as many as you can fit into your schedule, trust us. There are so many good ones airing this year.
With so many holiday specials to be watched, we have to make sure we keep track of everything, especially the slew of TV programs. We already have a master list of every best TV Christmas movie that’s airing, so we thought we’d be as helpful as Santa’s elves and make one for the rest of the television shows you’ll want to know about too. This year’s batch stars Dolly Parton, the coaches of The Voice, and so many more magical hosts.
Behold the master list of every 2020 Christmas TV special happening this December. No need to thank us—just get us a really great Christmas gift instead (psst, like these ceramic Christmas trees, for example)
