Who wants 12 days when you can have a full 25 Days of Christmas? Cable channel Freeform has once again created a 25-day schedule of classic Christmas movies for the kids and family to watch this holiday season.

Freeform’s 25 Days of Christmas kicks off on Dec. 1 and continues all the way through Christmas Day, with Christmas movies and other holiday titles filling up most of its daily schedule. This year Freeform will be the place to watch favorites like Home Alone, The Santa Clause, Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Arthur Christmas and many of the classic clay-mation holiday classics featuring Rudolph, Frosty and more.

As a cable channel, consumers should double check or sign up for a traditional cable/satellite pay-TV service that carries the channel. The channel is also included in the lineup of some live TV streaming services, including FuboTV, Hulu with Live TV, Sling TV and YouTube TV.
