You’re on or about to be on winter break, it’s cold outside, and your usual shows are on their holiday break and aren’t airing new episodes. What do you do? Watch holiday TV specials, of course! Aside from all the great holiday movies you can catch this time of year, there are plenty of can’t-miss holiday TV specials. Here are seven recommendations: 1. A Charlie Brown Christmas This is a holiday classic. The holidays are all about traditions, and, for many of us, watching A Charlie Brown Christmas is one of them. Plus, if your dog or younger sibling had a tree “incident,” this will make you feel better about your tree. Tuesday, Dec. 16 at 8 PM on ABC 2. Elf: Buddy’s Musical Christmas In this stop-motion animated musical take on the familiar holiday movie, Santa narrates Buddy’s trip to New York. Tuesday, Dec. 16 at 8 PM on NBC 3.
