25 days of tradition

Mason Rhoades, Writer

Every family has their own holiday traditions, whether that be making gingerbread houses, or baking festive cookies. Throughout the years, 25 Days of Christmas has gradually started its own holiday tradition, and the best part is, it is twenty five days long. The event was first held in 1996 and has been an annual fixture through its various incarnations, including The Family Channel, Fox Family, ABC Family, and Freeform. Many families have now made it a priority to catch their favorite movies, during the month of December, because of 25 Days of Christmas. The event has started it’s own Christmas tradition. 

25 Days of Christmas covers airings of classic holiday specials, as well as new Christmas themed movies. The holiday staple started this year on Saturday, Dec. 1 and will end on Tuesday, Dec. 25. The vast collection of movies shown during 25 Days of Christmas began with a showing of Santa Paws 2: The Santa Pups and will end with Disney’s Meet the Robinsons. Throughout the month classic movies such as Home Alone, The Santa Clause, and The Nightmare Before Christmas will be shown. Along with Holiday classics, Freeform will feature its own movies such as Life Size 2: A Christmas Eve.

Just when everyone thought they have had enough of holiday movies, Freeform is coming down the chimney with a plethora of fan favorite movies. Be sure to check the schedule to see when movies are playing. Happy Holidays!
