Based on the film Rompecabezas, Puzzle is one of those little-known independent films that sneaks into theaters with little to no fanfare, although the fact that it is being promoted “from the producer of Little Miss Sunshine” should help it get noticed somewhat.

If you are a fan of MercyMe (and how could you not?) you’ll want to take time out in the next two days to see them performing live and sharing music from their new Christmas album release, MercyMe It’s Christmas!
 

First up, they will be on FOX & Friends Wednesday, November 25. Here’s the catch though: they will be performing sometime between 6:00-9:00 a.m. (EST). No word on the exact time or how many songs they will sing, but regardless, it is sure to be a good time.
 

The group will be giving a performance of their song, “Christmastime Again” (by far the best song on the album) during the 89th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade which will air on NBC from 9:00 a.m.-12:0o noon.  Again, you’ll need to be nearby to catch them, as the actual time that they will perform has not been announced. But hey, you were going to watch anyway, right?
 

You can catch the group in person at one of their holiday tour concerts which kicking off Saturday, November 28th. For more information, visit mercyme.org/tour.

Finally, the quintet will headline the 2015 Todd Starnes Fox News Radio All-American Christmas special which will air Fox News radio stations across the country as well as FoxNews.com and FoxNation.com. It will be airing the week of Christmas.
