ABC Releases Schedule for 2015 Holiday Programming
As much as we don't want the cold weather to be here, it does mean the Holiday season is coming and that means our favorite Holiday television specials. ABC recently released their schedule for the 2015 season and as always, includes some of those classic family favorites.
Here are Five of the best Holiday Specials and when they will air according to MovieFone:
1. "Santa Claus is Comin' to Town"

2. "A Charlie Brown Christmas"
For each holiday Charles Schultz characters have brought great lessons and entertainment to millions of families. This year the special will celebrate it's 50th anniversary and before the airing of the classic, Kristen Bell will host a "holiday retrospective" on the season favorite. That special will air on Monday, November 30th at 8 p.m. with the actual special to air at 9 p.m.
