While I was out and about over the weekend I noticed the Christmas decor popping up. And soon to follow are the Christmas lights, parades, performances and TV shows. Major networks have posted their TV show and movie schedules throughout December. Whether it’s “A Christmas Story” or “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” it’s good to settle in and watch a special as a family, or have a few in the queue when your kids plus cousins need a wind-down moment after family get togethers. Following are dates and times for some of the upcoming specials.
