What Christmas television viewing means to us

There is nothing I enjoy more than spending time with my family over Christmas.  It’s a time to relax, eat chocolate, play board games and watch some Christmas TV.  This year there has been a great selection of programmes on offer including some of my favourite programmes.  For many year one of my Christmas traditions if you like has been to buy a copy of the Christmas television guide as soon as it’s available.  It gives us all the chance to have a look through and see if there is anything in particular we would like to watch.  Like a lot of families Christmas day television is part of the day. 

One of the programmes that I really wanted to see was the final episode of Downtown Abbey.  It’s a programme I have watched since it started and their Christmas episodes quickly became one that I looked forward too each year.  I think the fact that it was the final episode made it even more anticipated.  Also watching Eastenders is a must for me and something I have done for many years.  This year we were also keen to watch Lego at Christmas which was being shown on Boxing Day and then I also wanted to watch Mrs Brown’s Boys.  Christmas tv watching is made even more enjoyable with a Panasonic tv due to the picture and sound quality.  For us these factors help bring to life the programmes we are watching.

Our christmas tv viewing does not solely consist of watching new episodes of our favourite shows but also watching films and repeats of programmes we have grown to love over the years.  We always watch The Snowman and The Santa Clause movies.  There are of course programmes that the children would like to watch over the Christmas holidays although these tend to be episodes of their favourite cartoons or for Erin, a Disney movie.  This is the first Christmas that she has really understood what is going on and she has certainly been very vocal about what she want’s to watch.  So far Tinkerbell and The Pirate Fairy has been a favourite for her and we have watched it over five times already!  The older two boys have stared showing an interest in documentaries lately and have enjoyed watching them with their dad over the last week.  

Finding something to watch on tv that everyone agrees on is not always easy and there is usually a lot of compromise involved to ensure everyone is happy.  Thankfully so far this Christmas we have managed to avoid any major arguments, although the tv remote has gone missing a few times!    Do you have a favourite programme that you like to watch over Christmas?  What ever you have been watching I hope you’ve enjoyed your Christmas viewing so far.
