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 October 1

Walt Disney World Resort Opens
The Walt Disney World Resort is most visited vacation resort in the world boasting of an annual attendance of 52.5 million. Originally designed as a sister theme park to Disneyland, WDW opened its gates on this day in Bay Lake, Florida. Part of the plans called for an "Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow," (EPCOT) a planned city that would serve as a test bed for new innovations for city living. Though the end result was quite a bit different from the original plans, EPCOT also opened on this day in 1982. Later, the Disney/MGM Studios (now called Disney’s Hollywood Studios) opened in 1989 and Disney’s Animal Kingdom opened in 1999.
