This year sees the debut of two new family Christmas specials. First up is A Miser Brothers Christmas on ABC Family. This is a sequel to the beloved Christmas Special A Year Without Santa Claus. The constantly battling Miser Brothers, Heat Miser and Snow Miser must work together when their even more annoying brother North Wind takes out Santa so he himself can take the glory of delivering toys to the children of the world. This debuted on Saturday but will be repeated over the weekend. I watch the first 15 minutes and it looked funny. A Year Without Santa Claus was always the favorite in my house. My brother always called me Heat Miser since I have red hair. He was tall and skinny so he took the role of Snow Miser.
The on Wednesday is a brand new Muppet Christmas Special - A Muppet Christmas: Letters to Santa. When the Muppets mistakenly pick up a bag of letters bound for Santa, they head to the north pole to deliver them directly. This is the third Muppet Christmas special after the Muppet Christmas Carol and a Very Merry Muppet Christmas. Yay for Muppets!
