A round-up of holiday programming to take you through the New Year

Maybe you’re feeling the holiday spirit, or maybe you just want to avoid looking at carolers and Santa Claus when you remote-surf, but television programmers have embraced all things holiday-themed (especially and specifically Christmas themed, more on that below) this year. Here’s a list that, hopefully, tells you where to find all things holiday on your television this year. 
What you will likely notice is the dearth of Hanukkah-themed programming this year. This isn’t for lack of effort, mind you — I simply have come up empty-handed. If you’ve managed to find “Eight Crazy Nights” (note: it is available on DVD), “The Hebrew Hammer” (not for children, mind you), “The Rugrats Hanukkah Special,” or anything else that fits the bill (or covers Kwanzaa, which is Dec. 26 – Jan. 1), please feel free to comment below.
