Every year, we like to bring you something special to watch over the holidays for when you're gathered together with your nearest and dearest.
This year, we're working on a truly excellent Christmas Eve special, with live performances from the Blue Rodeo, Chris Hadfield, Blind Boys of Alabama, Charles Bradley, Nikki Yanofsky, Young Galaxy and Daniel Clarke Bouchard. We'll also have special Christmas greetings from Canada's reigning crooner, Michael Bublé and twin singing sensations Tegan And Sara. Plus: we've brought together an international cast of top hip-hop stars to cover the classic Run–D.M.C. holiday jam, "Christmas in Hollis." The hour-long special starts at 11:30 p.m. on December 24 on CBC TV. And if you live in Toronto or Vancouver, we'll be on your TV on December 25 at 5 p.m. too.
