Spend Christmas Eve with a Chuck Norris movie marathon
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

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.
