CBS Is Airing All Kinds of Christmas Specials This Year—Here’s the Lineup

It's time to cuddle up on the couch and enjoy a classic Christmas experience, courtesy of CBS.

It’s only the beginning of November, but we’d be lying if we said we weren’t already 100% into the Christmas vibes. It’s not like the Christmas music is just going to play itself, you know?

Whenever this time of year rolls around, I can’t help but fall face-first into nostalgia. Going to Grandma’s house, helping her in the kitchen with the ham and eventually gathering around the Christmas tree with everyone in my family are some of my favorite holiday memories. Sometimes we’d have a quiet, traditional Christmas Eve with one another, and sometimes we’d indulge in festive Christmas movies (hello, Hallmark!) and games to pass the time. But as with every year, we’re looking forward to the CBS Chrismas specials that air around the holidays—with festive movies, exclusive concerts and more!
