All of the family-friendly holiday shows you and your family can watch in December

Dec 6, 2019

‘Tis the season to watch all of the holiday shows.

Everywhere you look, on every streaming service and almost every channel, it’s HOLIDAY. So we’ve gathered a list of the best holiday programming on CBC for families, for you to pin on your fridge next to the letter to Santa.

The Classics

Download the CBC Holiday schedule here.

If you have strong memories of growing up watching Rudolph and Frosty the Snowman on CBC, the tradition continues!

The CBC Holiday broadcast schedule is a handy printable you can plan your evenings by. You'll see some of your favourite classics there!

Over the years, newer programs have been added to the roster — shows I like to call the “new classics,” like The Magic Hockey Skates and The Curse of Clara. They are both available for streaming on CBC Gem.

A Very Merry Morning

Watch on CBC TV, December 24 starting at 7:00 a.m..

Unwrap a present early with A Very Merry Morning on CBC Kids! Tune in on December 24th and hang out with your Studio K pals for a full morning of festive fun, including episodes of Becca's Bunch, Rusty Rivets, Beat Bugs, and more! Plus, check out a mini marathon of the new CBC Kids show Kingdom Force, and a Studio K Christmas Carol. It's going to be better than a stocking full of eggnog!
