TCM Classic Christmas 2013

Turner Classic Movies will once again bring a different take on the holiday season to TV.

Of course there will be the classics – “A Christmas Carol”, “Scrooge” and “The Bishop’s Wife” to name a few.  However, once again TCM will concentrate on movies that aren’t necessarily considered Christmas movies but have Christmas as an integral part of the movie.

Many of these have become holiday favorites the last few years with repeated airings on TCM during the Christmas season.  This year TCM will have theme nights several times throughout the month of December with blocks of Christmas-themed movies.

Here is TCM’s December calendar of Christmas programming:
