Freeform has unveiled its ’25 Days of Christmas’ lineup and it’s going to fill some people with a lot of holiday cheer.
Love the movie, “Elf?” You have 20 chances to watch it. You have 21 opportunities to catch “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.” “Frozen” is being shown twice, each during prime viewing hours.
Both Willy Wonka shows made the list, the one with Gene Wilder and Johnny Depp.
The network also has a “Toy Story” marathon on Dec. 8 and a “Santa Clause” double feature, starring Tim Allen, on Dec. 22.
Still, it’s impossible to get everything on everyone’s holiday wish list and the network did make some curious choices that people took issue with, such as:
- Why include Santa Clause one and “The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause,” but not the second movie, “The Santa Clause 2” — especially when touting the shows?
- Why include “Home Alone: The Holiday Heist” but not the best regarded first two “Home Alone” movies?
- People lamented that more animated classics weren’t included. And they often missed the ones that were, such as, “Rudolph & Frosty’s Christmas in July,” “Frosty’s Winter Wonderland,” and “Twas the Night Before Christmas” because they weren’t being shown during prime-time hours.
