This week begins ABC Family’s all day long 25 Days of Christmas programming. “That 70′s Show” had many holiday themed episodes that you can catch today. Then “Winnie the Pooh and Christmas Too” shares what the season is all about, and Phineas and Ferb get into the action with some holiday cheer of their own making. Rounding off the evening is the ABC Family premiere special, “Santa Buddies”.
(7:00 – 9:00 AM ET/PT) CHRISTMAS DO-OVER
This holiday movie, starring Jay Mohr (“Jerry Maguire”) and Daphne Zuniga (“Beautiful People”), tells the story of Kevin (Mohr), who unwittingly gets a chance to go back and do things differently when he is forced to relive one terrible Christmas over and over again. Kevin slowly realizes this might be his last chance to get Christmas right and get back what he lost – and what he most needed all along – his family. (Live Action)

Phineas and Ferb want to show Santa how grateful they are for the work that he does every year at Christmas time by transforming the city of Danville into a giant shimmering thank you card and building a rest stop for Santa to relax in between delivering presents. However, when Dr. Doofenshmirtz develops a Naughty-inator that coats the entire Tri-state area in a cloud of naughtiness, Christmas is threatened to be cancelled, so it’s up to Phineas and Ferb to convince Santa’s elves that they really have been nice and save Christmas.
