We haven’t even made it through Thanksgiving yet, but classic Christmas programming is already underway with the first showing of 'Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer' earlier this week on CBS. (7 PM).

If you’re like me and refuse to watch Christmas shows until AFTER Thanksgiving, you’ll be able to catch Rudolph's six other airings as part of the Freeform Network’s "25 Days of Christmas" schedule.

'How the Grinch Stole Christmas'

This is the schedule for the 1966 animated special --- not the 2000 Jim Carrey version or the 2018 movie.

This Friday, November 26th, at 7 PM on NBC and again on Christmas Night at 7 PM. It also is available for streaming at Peacock's premium level.

'Frosty the Snowman'

The 1969 animated classic will also air for the first time this season on Black Friday --- at the same time as ‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas’ – 7 PM, but Frosty can be seen on CBS. (followed by "Frosty Returns" at 7:30 p.m.) It will also air numerous times on Freeform’s  "25 Days of Christmas" schedule.
