Everything is better during the most wonderful time of the year, especially on your television.

Each year, Christmas specials are scattered across different channels, but one station is known for playing back-to-back Christmas classics.

Freeform TV (formerly ABC Family) has been airing their 25 Days of Christmas Special since 1996 and despite a few name changes, most of it’s programming has remained the same.

From December 1 through Christmas Day, Freeform airs a variety of Christmas movies and a few non-holiday films like Disney•Pixar’s The Incredibles. Some changes for this year will include newly produced Christmas films and a variety of Disney Channel programming, as Disney is Freeform’s parent company.

However, Elf, Polar Express and National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation will be missing from this year’s lineup, as those rights were transferred to AMC.
