Trust us, you’ll want to set your DVR for these holiday classics.

It’s that time of year again. We haven't even said goodbye to Halloween yet, much less Thanksgiving. But we're already counting down the days until the Christmas season officially begins. Beyond decking the halls, decorating our homes, and loudly singing festive songs around the house, we can’t wait to curl up on the couch to watch classic Christmas films as the end of the year draws near. Since there are so many spirited movies to choose from during the holiday season, we’ve done the hard work for you in sifting through the TV guide and networks to find all your joyous, winter-filled favorites.

Of course, the mainstays for around-the-clock Yuletide cheer are Hallmark’s annual "Countdown to Christmas extravaganza" and Freeform network’s 25 Days of Christmas event. But you’ll find a few oldies but goodies here, such as Home Alone, Elf, Christmas Vacation, It’s a Wonderful Life, and A Charlie Brown Christmas.

So prepare to wrap yourself in a warm blanket, light a holiday-scented candle, and grab a big mug of hot cocoa. Here’s a comprehensive list, courtesy of Christmas TV schedule and Mostly Christmas, on when and where to find all of your favorite holiday films— from now through Christmas:
