With Christmas 2020 looking different for many, Freeform’s Christmas Day schedule is full of lighthearted content to lift you up.
Start the day laughing with The Simpsons before working your way through The Santa Clause series.

Finally, you'll get to close out Dec. 25 with more giggles from The Simpsons after a day full of nostalgic classics and good laughs.
