2013 ABC Family 25 Days of Christmas Schedule; 25th Anniversary Roseanne Stunt on WE tv Tomorrow

ABC Family 25 Days of Christmas

As promised, we have the 2013 ABC Family 25 Days of Christmas schedule for you. A few days ago we gave you the Countdown to 25 Days of Christmas schedule (Nov. 20-30), but we're already in the holiday spirit and want to give you the 25 days line-up, too! From December 1-25, viewers can ring in the holidays with original movies, holiday specials and returning favorites. This year, "25 Days of Christmas" will feature the world premiere of the ABC Family original movie, Holidaze, starring Jennie Garth (Beverly Hills, 90210; What I Like About You) and Cameron Mathison (Dancing with the Stars, All My Children). Premiering Sunday, December 8 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), Holidaze follows Mel (Garth), a high-powered executive who is sent back to her hometown to convince its residents to allow her company to build a new discount store. The townspeople - led by Mel's former fiancé Carter (Mathison) - are vehemently opposed to it. Desperate to get out of town and back to her "real" life, Mel takes a spill and wakes up in an alternate universe where she never left home and is married to Carter. Once determined to leave her small town life behind, Melody must make sense of her new life and decide if you truly can go home again.

The celebrations continue with the holiday-themed episode premieres of ABC Family's hit comedies, Melissa & Joey and Baby Daddy, airing Wednesday, December 11 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). The two sitcoms will return with more episodes in 2014, but you can watch all-new Christmas episodes first! Making their ABC Family debuts this month are Deck the Halls on Wednesday, December 4 (10:00 PM-12:00 AM ET/PT), Winnie the Pooh on Saturday, December 14 (8:00-9:30 AM ET/PT) and Disney's The Little Mermaid on Saturday, December 14 (8:00-9:45 PM ET/PT; Encore Presentation 9:45-11:30 PM ET/PT). A new generation of viewers can enjoy the Rankin Bass holiday classics, such as Rudolph's Shiny New Year Thursday, December 5 (6:00-7:00 PM ET/PT), Frosty's Winter Wonderland Friday, December 6 (6:00-6:30 PM ET/PT) and The Year Without a Santa Claus Tuesday, December 10 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).
