Merry Christmas everyone!!! It’s that special time of year when everything seems happy and bright and the spirit of giving is in the air. It’s that time when movies about love, peace, and Santa Claus come out in the theaters. And who doesn’t love Christmas movies? They’re cheerful, they get you in the holiday spirit, and they remind you that very soon you will be receiving free stuff! What could be better than that? And what else comes out at this time of year? Well, while the big screen is parading around the jolly fat man in a red suit in front of you, the small screen is making its own contribution through the ever beloved TV Christmas special.
Once a year we get treated to a special holiday episode of our favorite shows. Most of you will be familiar with the Christmas specials from sitcoms. However, this wouldn’t be the Silver Petticoat Review if I didn’t include a little bit of genre, Doctor Who, and some classics in there too. Oh, and of course I must make mention of the spectacular British Christmas specials. The Brits really know what they’re doing when they put together a Christmas special. They’ve got some of the best out there in my opinion. Now, I haven’t put this list in any particular order. I just couldn’t decide. So, it’s more of a mish-mash of all my favorites. I hope you enjoy them and that you are inspired to watch or re-watch a few.
