Here Are the Best Christmas TV Marathons to Watch

Television

There’s going to be a whole lot of holiday content hitting the airwaves on Santa’s big day. Freeform will cap off its annual 25 Days of Christmas celebration with a bunch of festive films, and TNT/TBS will continue its time-honored tradition of replaying A Christmas Story for 24 hours straight between Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

It’s not just tinsel-themed TV that’ll be available on air during the break, either. There are also a sleighful of other marathons hitting the small screen this year, like FXX’s massive marathon of The Simpsons, which kicks off on Tuesday, Dec. 17 at 8 p.m. ET and runs until Tuesday, Dec. 31 at 4:30 p.m. ET, with 661 episodes from the first 30 seasons and The Simpsons Movie airing throughout the marathon. There are also tons of other movies, TV series, and specials which will be running alongside all those reindeer, so, even if you’re feeling a little bah humbug about all the merriment afoot outside, you can enjoy a little staycation with your TV screen all the same.

Check out all of the best TV marathons which will air on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day below (all times eastern).
