Woohoo! I had originally scheduled a different article for today and on Friday I was going to tell you about fun Christmas and Holiday TV shows  for enjoyable couch potato activities for grandparents and their grandchildren. BUT when I started researching it, I discovered there are many specials planned THIS WEEK! And since many of our grandchildren are out of school part or all of this week and many of us granny nannies and pappies will be doing extra babysitting, I thought this might prove useful sooner. So I did a bit of a switcheroo, JUST FOR YOU! 🙂 Fun news for boomers, seniors AND grandkids, that’s for sure!

One of my favorite holiday resources is the 25 Days til Christmas Countdown by the ABC Family Channel. Since they’ve already started, it’s obvious we’ll get bonus days full of fun choices to carefully pick and choose from for our grandkids nearby. Just some of the choices include Cheaper By The Dozen, Ratatouille, Santa Clause 1,2,3 with Tim Allen (a fave of mine), and a baby boomer generation favorite – Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. No, I still don’t do much with Santa Claus (I love Saint Nicholas though), but they know it’s pretend and they’re just plain fun for us. 🙂 Be sure to download the PDF file of the December shows. Then you can print them and keep them handy. A great time saver for all of us busy with the Sandwich Generation issues of caring for elderly parents and grandkids.

If you get the Hallmark Channel, they’ve got some great choices as well starting with Thanksgiving specials like An Old-Fashioned Thanksgiving and The Town That Christmas Forgot. For Christmas there’s a wide variety including The Most Wonderful Time of the Year, Our First Christmas, Kelsey Grammar’s version of A Christmas Carol, plenty of fun ideas from Martha Stewart, and so much more. I’m looking forward to Doris Roberts in Call Me Mrs. Miracle on November 27. 🙂 Here’s their Countdown to Christmas schedule. has a schedule of holiday shows from several channels, from ABC Family to TNT.

Last year, TV Guide Channel had a nice calendar with a lot of the shows (though not all). Might keep your eye on them as it gets closer to the holidays.

Holiday time is full of fun activities for grandparents and their grandchildren. It’s also a time when grandkids (and grandparents) are more susceptible to colds and flu, plus all those activities can wear us out fast. Having a nice selection of fun holiday shows can be a big help for a tired or sick granny nanny or pappy – or just plain fun as a quiet change of pace. If you hear of any other Thanksgiving, Christmas, or other holiday TV schedules, do let us know in the comments and I’ll update this post to reflect any I find as well. 🙂  Happy Holidays! 😉
