UnPopular Opinion: Freeform’s 25 Days of Christmas Lacks Content.

So, one of the things that many individuals get excited about during the holidays are the Christmas lineups presented by the networks that cater to individuals like me. Those of us who need Christmas injected in our veins and would snort snow as if they are a member of the Trump family. Of course, there are the staples such as Hallmark and Lifetime. TBS will show A Christmas Story for 24 hours straight, which still may not be enough time. That movie is a classic, damn it. AMC is now entering the game by showing the movies that put some holly jolly in your heart or nethers. We will not judge. But there is one network, I have a beef with. One network, that needs to be called out. And that is Freeform.

First, the back story. Freeform fka ABC Family FKA Fox Family FKA The Family Channel, and soon will possibly be just a symbol, has made it their mission to put family Christmas cheer as a viable source of entertainment. And since the inception in 1996, their 25 Days of Christmas is a staple in many homes across the world. It has become tradition to grab a hot chocolate and sit down to watch this network for the entirety of a day.

But today, we learned of the schedule for this year’s incarnation of the 25-day celebration and quite honestly, it is kind of pathetic. Of course, while I do love first two Home Alone movies and the Santa Clause series, I beg to ask the question, how many times can one network show the same movie in 25 days? Well….

During the 25 Days, the network drops the Santa Clause Series a whopping 12 times. And while may not seem like a lot, think about this way,

3*12= 36

Each movie is two hours


For 72 hours you will see Tim Allen as Santa Claus. That is three solid days of Tim Allen. And no one wants that.

72 Hours of this. 72 Freaking Hours. Not worth it.

And they do the same thing with Home Alone and Toy Story, which all 6 of these movies are on Disney+ and can be watched without commercials when the person wants to see it.

So, that leads me to this, Freeform 25 Days of Christmas needs some new material. While we may bash on the fact that every Hallmark movie is virtually the same story, at least they have new content for the Christmas junkies out there. And it is not like Disney does not have the content to fill extra time with shows from Christmas pasts sitting in their vaults.

At the end of the day, I am saying it and I saying it for the person in the back, Freeform’s 25 Days of Christmas lacks.

I am Richard and I have a problem. A problem with entertaining people. I have been in the comedy world for over 10 years. I started out as an improv actor making fun and light of everything. Doing that felt rewarding, but I have to admit, I wanted more. I couldn’t get the taste of performing out of my mouth. Does that not sound a little creepy? I decided to start doing my own stand up show. I love to make fun of my family and anything that will make a normal person say what the fuck. The journey still continues, in 2009, I had a dream to create my own online magazine. This is the beautiful corner of craziness in front of you. I have been through hell in my life but being stopped is something that I will not let happen. I am a fighter and hope to make people realize it is ok to smile and think from time to time. It also helps being a nerd.
