One of the things I look forward to during the holiday's is watching all my favorite holiday specials and movies! My dad and I used to get up early to watch the parades! I still love watching them. I own the Peanuts DVD collection and now, I have them in the library on our "smart TV" and yet, I want to see Charlie Brown Christmas and Rudolph live on TV with commercials. Why? Because it brings back happy emotions and makes me feel like a kid again. So bring on the holiday specials

There are plenty of new specials this year. The holiday's kick off this week with a celebration of Dolly Parton’s 50 years as a member of the Grand Ole Opry (Wednesday night).
