No Such Thing as Too Much TV...

...when it comes to Christmas Shows, that is!

We try and limit the amount of tv Iz watches. In reality she still watches too much but, in our defense, 90% is educational and she's learned languages, shapes, colors, sharing, imagination, dance and a million other things from her *buddies* on PBS, Nick Jr., and the Disney channel. The amount of television we watch is directly affected by the weather. When the weather is bad, the tv is on...and vice versa.

However, the Christmas season has begun (well, to me it doesn't officially begin until December 1st, but we won't get into that right now) and all tv rules go out the window when it comes to Christmas specials. ABC Family is beginning it's 25 Days of Christmas on Wednesday and all the networks have various Christmas shows scheduled to air throughout the month. Me? I plan on watching them ALL with Iz right by my side!!! :)

I read an article in the paper yesterday where the author listed his holiday specials to warm the heart. It was HIS ten favorite Christmas shows. You can find the article HERE.

Here's his list:

1.) A Charlie Brown Christmas
2.) Miracle on 34th Street
3.) A Christmas Story
4.) How the Grinch Stole Christmas
5.) Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
6.) It's a Wonderful Life
7.) It's a Wonderful Life
8.) Frosty the Snowman
9.) Saturday Night Live Christmas
10.) Scrooged

There are 3 shows on the list I have not seen (pathetic, I know, but I've never watched #2, 6 & 9 ....probably because my holiday viewing focuses mainly on cartoons!) but, I must say, it's a good list. However...there are a few shows missing. I'm not sure why - maybe the author was limited to 10 or limited himself to 10. Either way...tomorrow I'm posting MY list of must-see holiday specials and then I'm going to make a point of watching the above list AND my list in the next 26 days (um, 26...that's how many days 'til Christmas y'all!!!!).

Bring on the Fa-la-la-la-la, Ho Ho Ho and You'll Shoot Your Eye Out!!!! I'm ready :)
