I would like to pre-apologize to any of my family and friends that will likely get annoyed with how early I am getting into the Christmas mood.

However, I am also not too sorry, because once I find out when I'll be able to watch my favorite holiday special on TV, I can't help it!

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Frosty the Snowman, and plenty of other holiday specials air on CBS each year to get everyone (like me) into the holiday spirit.

We now know when some of those beloved classics will hit the airwaves and, good news, we don't even need to wait until November is done!
