Ahh Christmas. The tree, the stockings, the mistletoe and - of course - the holiday Televisione programming.

Some of my fondest Natale memories were spent in front a of Televisione watching such classics as the animated Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer o one of the myriad versions of Dickens' 'A Natale Carol'.

So without further ado, I am presenting te with my big, big lista of holiday specials. I've tried to categorize the lista into subsections to make it a little più bearable and consumable. The lista is in no particular order, though the first section, 'essentials', are (in my humble opinion) the cream of the crop. I should also note that I've only included programs for which I was able to find online video so you'll notice some glaring omissions (like 'A Natale Story' and 'Miracle on 34th Street).

In any event, here's wishing te a great Christmas. Now sit back and dig into some of the best Natale content on the web...

The Essentials
If te can only watch a couple of holiday specials, these are the ones to watch. This is the proverbial 'hall of fame' of Natale programming.

Cartoons
The cartoon seems to be perfectly suited to Christmas. How better to present that perfect blanket of Natale snow o a whimsically decorated Natale tree?

Stop-Motion animazione (Claymation)
There aren't too many specials in this category, but the legendary Rudolph the Red Nosed Reinder (listed as entry #3 in the "Essentials" section) make it necessary to call out other specials in this genre. There's something about claymation and Natale that seem to go hand-in-hand.

Versions of 'A Natale Carol'
There have been so many versions of this Charles Dickens classic that it warrants its own section in this article. Here are just a few of the adaptations (all animated, I might add):

Sitcoms
The sitcom is another mainstay of Christmas. anno after anno Televisione sitcoms revel in the same, recyled holiday plots. Of course there are some original bright spots (like 'The Office' and Seinfeld's classic 'Festivus' episode).

Music Videos
Natale Musica is an integral part of Christmas. Sure some of it is cheesy and way too corny, but I generally enjoy Natale Musica in reasonable doses. Here are some of my favorites. My all-time preferito clip is probalby the improbable duet between David Bowie and Bing Crosby from a 1977 Natale Special.

Miscellaneous Specials & Documentaries
This is a mish-mash of some different Natale programming that I didn't know how to categorize otherwise. Still, you'll find some interesting (non-animated) stuff.

The Commercials
Of course, with all that Natale Televisione programming there's bound to be an equal amount of holiday-themed advertising. Here are some of my favorites. I'm partial to the Hershey's Kisses commercial.

The Parodies, Sketches & Spoofs

The Abominations
Of course, not all holiday specials are created equal. Folks have create a lot of horrible Natale programming over the years. I'm not about to subject myself to watching o cataloging all of them, but here are a few to get te started. But note that te have been warned - these will have te crying out: "oh the humanity" before too long.
