What’s Your Favorite Holiday Special?

We want to know what Christmas program gets you to turn on and tune in Tampa Bay!

Just turn on a television and it is quite clear the holidays are almost here. Christmas specials top the programming lineup on many stations, and for good reason: people tune in to watch them.

After all, why would ABC Family dedicate 25 days to Christmas if folks like us didn’t flip the switch to watch? Many of us even have a secret favorite that we can’t wait to watch each year. Seeing it makes the season just a little merrier. (For me, it’s “A Charlie Brown Christmas.”)

And that’s what we want to talk to you about today, Tampa Bay! We want to know which holiday special is your must-watch of the season.

  • Is it “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” you can’t live without?
  • Maybe it’s the “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” that makes your holidays complete?
  • Perhaps you prefer rockin’ it old school with “Miracle on 34th Street” or “A Christmas Story?”

Whatever the case, Tampa Bay, we to hear your thoughts!

What’s your absolute favorite, must-watch TV special at the holidays? Why do you love it so much? Share your opinions in the comments section.

Scrooge 1951 version the best but watch them all. Also, The Little Drummer Boy animation. Brings me to tears every time.
