It’s that time of year again! It’s time to wrap yourself in a blanket, with some hot cocoa, warm baked chocolate chip cookies, and maybe even decorate the house for the holidays. I’m not just talking about any holiday. I’m talking about Christmas! Holiday Christmas TV specials are always fun to watch during the holidays. Some of the holiday specials this year include “Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town,” “The Year Without a Santa Claus,” “It’s a Wonderful Life,” “Frosty Returns,” and so much more.
“Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town” is about mailman named “S.D.” Kluger, whose snowmobile suddenly breaks down. While his snow mobile is under construction, he tells the town children about the story of Santa Claus, and he answers all of the questions the children have about Santa.

“The Year Without a Santa Claus” is actually considered a sequel to the “Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town” TV movie special, and is about Santa waking up with a sudden cold and being told by doctors that he should take this year’s Christmas off. He decides to take off for that Christmas and Santa’s job is now left in the hands of his elves to get the job done so that the world can still have a successful Christmas.

“It’s a Wonderful Life” airs this Saturday, Dec. 14 on NBC at 8:00 pm. The TV movie is based on the short story, “The Greatest Gift,” and is about a man named George Bailey, who is suicidal and deeply troubled by things in life. Clarence Odbody, who is an angel from above, is on assignment to go down to Earth and save George from committing suicide, which will earn him his wings. Both Clarence and George review his life in a sequence of dreams.
“Frosty Returns” also airs this Saturday, Dec. 14 on CBS at 8:30 pm. This TV special is about, well you guessed it, Frosty the Snowman returning. A little girl named Holly, is playing outside in the snow, after school was cancelled for the day due to a seven-inch snow fall. While playing with one of her friends, Holly’s hat blows off from the wind and lands on an already-made snowman. The snowman then comes to life and Frosty the Snowman arises from the snow. Holly realizes that her hat was actually “the old silk hat” from the famous song.
