Friday 12/7: ABC Family’s 25 Days of Christmas – Daily Schedule

ABC Family's 25 Days of Christmas

Let’s look at what movie goodies ABC Family has for us tonight, December 7th, on its 25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS schedule.

(7:00 – 8:00 PM ET/PT) SANTA CLAUS IS COMIN’ TO TOWN
Fred Astaire narrates this tale of Kris Kringle (Mickey Rooney), a young boy with an immense desire to do good things for others. In his home village of Sombertown, Kris has started a gift factory where he builds toys and gives them to all the local children. But when the evil ruler, Burgermeister (Paul Frees), bans toys from the land, Kris is forced to go directly to Mother Nature and ask her for assistance. With the help of magical elves and several special reindeer, Kris overcomes the Burgermeister and delivers toys to children all over the world, earning him the name Santa Claus. (Rankin Bass)

(8:00 – 10:30 PM ET/PT) THE POLAR EXPRESS
For one doubting boy (voice of Daryl Sabara and Tom Hanks), an astonishing event occurs. Late on Christmas Eve night, he lies in bed hoping to hear the sound of reindeer bells from Santa’s sleigh. When to his surprise, a steam engine’s roar and whistle can be heard outside his window. The conductor (voice of Tom Hanks) invites him on board to take an extraordinary journey to the North Pole with many other pajama-clad children. There, he receives an extraordinary gift only those who still believe in Santa can experience. (Animated)

(10:30 PM – 1:00 AM ET/PT) THE POLAR EXPRESS – Encore Presentation
