There’s Dasher and Dancer, and Comet and Cupid. Buddy the elf, Frosty the Snowman, and the Grinch. But the most famous Christmas character of all, Santa Claus.

As a child, Christmas was the most important holiday. It means presents, no school, and watching movies, snuggled on the couch with hot chocolate. Now, teenagers are stressed from finals, applying to college, and picking the perfect present for family and friends. However, seeing their favorite childhood Christmas character on screen brings back the same childhood, Christmas feeling.

To help mark the beginning of the holidays, Freeform will be holding Freeform 25 Days of Christmas from Dec 1-25. Students can use this for a break from studying for finals and enjoy a little holiday spirit. Here is everything to know about when to tune in. 

The 25 Days of Christmas kicks off with Home Alone One and Two, classic movies that nobody should miss. They will be played again on Dec 5, Dec 9,Dec 13, Dec 16, Dec 21, and ending the 25 days, they will be shown on Christmas day. How the Grinch Stole Christmas, a classic, comedic, heartfelt movie, will make students’ hearts grow three sizes if they tune in each week to watch both the 2000 and 2018 versions. If anyone gets tired of Christmas movies and wants a bit of nostalgia, they can tune in to watch all the Toy Story movies on Dec 11. Childhood classics with catchy tunes, such as Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town, Frosty the Snowman, and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, will be playing on Dec 4, Dec 19, and Dec 24. All four The Santa Clause movies will be shown on Dec 3, Dec 6, and Dec 22. 

Christmas is the time for family, friends, and holiday cheer. Students can take a break from the stress of studying for finals and instead enjoy the Christmas classics of their childhood.
