Read up on TV Christmas specials with A Very Merry MeTV Blogathon

The Classic TV Blog Association is writing fan essays about several Christmas episodes.

The holiday season is upon us. That means longer lines at the cash registers, twinkling lights around the neighborhood, peppermint flavored everything… and a several servings of classic holiday episodes on MeTV! Tonight, MeTV kicks off A Very Merry MeTV, six weeks seasonal episodes from the vault of television history. Each weeknight at 9PM | 8C, tune in for a slice of good cheer from Christmas past (and some Thanksgiving outings, too). Take a look at the full schedule for more info.

To help us celebrate, the Classic TV Blog Association is writing recaps, break-downs and thinkpieces about many of the episodes you'll see on A Very Merry MeTV — and some beyond. These are websites written by fans for fans, by the community of viewers like you. So take some time before or after you watch these memorable episodes to read what others think.
