Decorating the tree, Christmas cookies, candy canes and big soft sweaters.  Just some of the reasons I love Christmastime, but probably my favorite is curling up on the couch with a fluffy blanket, cup of hot chocolate and a big bowl of popcorn and watching the Christmas specials and movies on TV that I grew up with.  I hate that I can’t ever seem to find a complete listing of Christmas TV specials and movies, so I’ve done a bunch of research and decided to share my findings with you.  Here’s when you’ll be able to watch your Christmas favorite this year:
