Reliving childhood programming

I was never very good about watching holiday shows at the time they aired. Much as I enjoyed classics like Santa Claus is Coming to Town and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, it used to be harder to find out when they were scheduled, so I'd miss them more often than not.

Enter the DVR. It's been a wonderful means of wallowing in nostalgic holiday programming. Thanks to this nifty device, I've seen Santa Claus is Coming to Town, Rudolph's Shiny New Year, and A Christmas Story, with Frosty the Snowman pending. I only missed A Charlie Brown Christmas and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.

It hasn't improved my seasonal efficiency, but it has been fun. Despite the house hunt horrors, I'm still very much in the Christmas spirit this year.
