I couldn't possibly include all of the wonderful Christmas movies that we have in this blog. There are over 400 selections to choose from in our catalog....more than enough for a countdown to Christmas Holiday movie marathon!  But no list would be complete without the Christmas variety show specials! Sometimes cheesy, sometimes sweet, and often times, a guilty pleasure during the Holiday season. Whether it's "the Man in Black" Johnny Cash circa 1977 or John Denver and the Muppets or a concert done by accomplished Classical musicians and Opera stars...these shows are sure to put a smile on your face and a song in your heart.
