Pumpkins to holly berries, jack-o-lanterns to gingerbread houses, trick-or-treaters to carolers. November is here, which means we're officially in the transitory month between the ookiest, spookiest time of the year and the most wonderful time of the year. Before I go any further, let me be the first to say I do not condone the popular urge to bypass Thanksgiving and jump straight to Christmas. In fact, I'll be brushing my teeth with mashed potatoes and drinking gravy from a S'well bottle for the next three weeks in preparation for Thanksgiving. Having established that, Freeform's 25 Days of Christmas countdown schedule was just released, and it's the perfect way to get excited for the biggest ho-ho-holiday of the year (as if we needed any help).

I'm a film writer, so, obviously, movies are my schtick, especially around this time of year. Don't get me wrong, I love Christmas music, egg nog, reindeers, and sitting my jolly ass on Santa's lap just as much as the next guy, but holiday movies are the best part of Christmas in my opinion and Freeform's 25 Days of Christmas schedule is LIT (no pun intended). I'm not sure where I'm eating Thanksgiving dinner yet, but I know what I'll be doing every night in December.

As in years past, Freeform's 25 Days of Christmas schedule is filled with festive staples like Elf, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, and Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas. In other words, it really is the most wonderful time of the year. The schedule begins on Dec. 1 and runs through Christmas day and, already, I can't wait.

I would like to point out that Home Alone (indisputably the best Christmas movie since Jesus invented the holiday in the '50s) is noticeably absent from the list, so, Freeform, if you're reading, please fix this.

Aside from that glaring mistake, it looks like it's almost time to grab some Christmas cookies and a big blanket to snuggle up by the fire as we count down to Dec. 25.
