Die Hard may always take all the action-movie attention around Christmas, but this year, Chuck Norris is stepping in to challenge John McClane’s holiday throne.

Encore has announced a marathon of classic Chuck Norris films, beginning at 1 a.m. on Dec. 24 and lasting into early Christmas morning, when Hero and Terror airs at 1:35 a.m. on Dec. 25.

The marathon will air on Encore Action and include four Norris films repeated three times each. So fear not—if you happen to flip into the last half-hour of Code of Silence, Norris as cop Eddie Cusack will return later in your Christmas Eve festivities.

Here’s the full schedule:

1:00 a.m. — Firewalker

2:50 a.m. — Forced Vengeance

4:30 a.m. — Invasion U.S.A.

6:25 a.m. — Code of Silence

8:10 a.m. — Hero and the Terror    

9:50 a.m. — Firewalker

11:40 a.m. — Forced Vengeance

1:15 p.m. — Invasion U.S.A.

3:05 p.m. — Code of Silence

4:50 p.m. — Hero and the Terror

6:30 p.m. — Firewalker

8:20 p.m. — Forced Vengeance

10:00 p.m. — Invasion U.S.A.

11:50 p.m. — Code of Silence

1:35 a.m. — Hero and the Terror

And if beloved ’80s television shows are more your Christmas Eve preference, Encore Classic will run a marathon of Murphy Brown, Night Court, and Magnum P.I. episodes beginning at 5 p.m.
