25 Days Of Xmas

Freeform's 25 Days of Christmas starts on Dec. 1 and is looked forward to by many people as a holiday tradition.

Dec. 1 is something that gets students excited, for many reasons. Not only is it the official start of festive activities, it also means the beginning of Freeform’s 25 Days of Christmas, previously known as ABC Family’s 25 Days of Christmas.

During the month of December, it is expected to only see Christmas movies playing on Freeform, and for some, this is a dream come true.

Freeform releases the schedule for the month of November, so students have a lot of time to get excited.

The first ever 25 Days of Christmas was in 1996 and there has been one every year ever since. This means that hundreds of Christmas movies have been cycled through the 25 days.

However, while many people enjoy the 25-day celebration, some students can see it as overrated. Sophomore recreational management major Serena Tyler does not usually watch 25 Days of Christmas.

“They replay the movies too much,” Tyler said. “There isn’t a lot of old classics either.”

After looking at the schedule, many of the movies do repeat themselves, playing Christmas movies all day for 25 days can definitely take a toll on the variety of movies shown.

Each night, Freeform has one main movie that starts at 7 p.m. The movie is played at that time in the hope that families can watch together and get into the Christmas spirit.

While some of the movies may seem repetitive, some students do not care because they love Christmas so much. Freshman history education major Olivia Hartshorn lives and breathes Christmas.

“On a scale of one to ten of loving Christmas, I am definitely a ten,” Hartshorn said. “It’s the best day of the year.”

Hartshorn’s favorite movie is “Elf,” and during 25 Days of Christmas that is what she is always looking forward to; she even has an “Elf” Christmas sweater.

Overall, it will for sure be an exciting 25 days to say the least. All genres of Christmas movies will be shown and chances are there will be at least one movie that everyone loves.
