Oh, what would I do without DVR? My husband and I use this all the time for our favorite shows, football games and more. It’s so nice to sit down after the kids are in bed and watch our recorded shows from the last week. So CSP thought you all would enjoy a list of the holiday shows to dvr so you don’t have to keep the kids up late or in case you weren’t home at just the right time. We did this last year and it had a great response. You will find many of the classics listed below and a couple for adults. I listed what I could find for the ratings (G, PG).There are so many more holiday shows on various networks so always do a search at home if you don’t see your favorite listed here.
