This year, I take no prisoners! This Year I’m going through the following 24 movies/specials on every night leading up to Christmas.

The Rankatron Holiday Special

Christmas Rank Up

24 Movies in 24 Days!

The Holiday Season is a time for family, friends, cookies, gifts, and (sometimes) copious amounts of spiked nutmeg.

It is ALSO a time for Christmas Holiday Specials!

The time frame after Remembrance Day (or around American Thanksgiving) until Boxing Day is always one of my favourite times of year when it comes to television or movies. It’s rife with incredible, fun, and cheesy Holiday movies that dictate this time of year. Each one harps (an angle pun!) about the benefits/challenges of being around loved ones during this time of year and the magic of Christmas and the Holidays.

During this time frame comfortably wedged between the freaky horror season of Halloween and the over-hyped Oscar season of January and February, I absolutely go gaga over Holiday Specials…but by December 25th, I’m typically tired of.

In the meantime, I’ve decided to embark on a mission to watch 24 straight Christmas/Holiday Specials for 24 straight days and do a mini review of each one. So between December 1st to Christmas Eve, yours truly will be doing his own Christmas Holiday Special of Rankatron awesomeness.

Are you ready of 24 days straight of Holiday Cheer? Me neither but lets all just pretend to get along for the Holidays, shall we? That’s what the spiked egg nog is for! 😉

Stay tuned right here for an updated list coming this week!
