The holidays are almost here, which means it’s time to dive into holiday movies (if you haven’t started already).

During the winter festivus, nearly every channel will be dipping its toes into the best movies to get you in the spirit. You couldn’t ask for a better-curated set of yuletide movies at your fingertips. The holiday season may be the one time of the year when the selection on TV is better than Netflix.

We compiled a schedule of when the best movies are airing from Dec. 15 to Jan. 2. Game the system to tune in to a holiday classic you’ve never seen before, or watch A Christmas Story for the 20th time. Convince a friend who’s never seen The Nightmare Before Christmas that they must watch it with you, or take a break from the hustle and bustle for some solo TV watching, just you and a tray of Christmas cookies. Time to get pumped for the carols, eggnog, and holiday magic that lies before you.
