Along with holly and mistletoe, another great Christmas tradition includes families gathered around the warm glow of a TV to watch much beloved Christmas movies and TV specials.

This year, watch for a select group of U.S. stations specializing in everybody's favorite Christmas gems - such as CBS for animated specials, TMC for movies, or Freeform (formerly known as ABC Family) for the big mix of movies, specials and animated tales.

It's a Wonderful Life on NBC Christmas Eve? The 24-hour A Christmas Story marathon on TBS? We've got it covered.

It's nice to know that some things never change, especially around the holidays. But what else is happening around TV land this Christmas?
