The Ultimate Guide to Christmas Specials

Christmas TV specials, limited series and movies are bigger than ever these days from now until the New Year, you’ll be able to find some festive yule-tide programming every night of the week. From the traditional viewing of It’s a Wonderful Life, the different versions of How the Grinch Stole Christmas, to baking shows and live music specials, we’ve got them all listed on the new Christmas TV Specials page. (Since not all of the networks list their specials early, this list will be updated throughout the coming weeks, so check back often for new additions!)

This Day in Pop Culture for March 13

The Encyclopedia Britannica was printed for the last time on March 13, 2010.

The Printed Encyclopedia Britannica is No More

The first printed edition of the Encyclopedia Britannica was published between 1768 and 1771 in Edinburgh as the “Encyclopedia Britannica, or, A Dictionary of Arts and Sciences compiled upon a New Plan.” On this day in 2012, Britannica's president, Jorge Cauz, announced that it would not produce any new print editions and that the 2010 15th edition would be the last. Today the company only focuses on the online edition and other educational tools.
