Friday Movie Review: Holiday Television

Yep, kitties! It's that most wonderful time of year again . . . which means holiday tv programming.

The ABC Family channel has their 25 Days of Christmas from December 1 through Christmas Day. However, the programming seems lighter on Rankin-Bass classics this year, and heavier on the family movies. You can click here to see the schedule. This weekend is "Harry Potter Weekend," starting at 7:30 est tonight with "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone."

The Lifetime channel is also showcasing a lot of romantic and heart-warming holiday movies this month as well. One of mommy's favorites is "Borrowed Hearts," which stars Roma Downey and Eric McCormick . . . in his pre "Will and Grace" years. It was on earlier this week and mommy stayed up way too late to watch it. You can see Lifetime's movie page here. According to their schedule, "Borrowed Hearts" will be on again on Sunday, December 14 at 3:00PM if anykitty or bean is interested.

AMC will be showing holiday movies starting the afternoon of Christmas Eve, beginning with George C. Scott in the 1984 version of "A Christmas Carol."

On Fridays and during the holidays of December, Turner Classic Movies is showcasing Yuletide movies, such as "Scrooge" and "Christmas in Connecticut." Tonight at 8:00 est TCM is showing "Meet Me in St. Louis" starring Judy Garland, and featuring her performance of the wonderful classic "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas."

Judy is right, everykitty . . . we should all have ourselves a wonderful holiday season! So curl up with your beans on the couch and watch some holiday cheer!
