“We don’t have ABC Family?!?!?”
That is a typical exclamation heard on campus around Christmastime. Students are obviously frustrated by the fact that BC’s cable package will not be able to provide them with their daily dose of Christmas movies in December, but fear not! Your lack of access to ABC Family’s "25 Days of Christmas" will not ruin your Christmas this year.
Gavel Media is here to save the day with our own "25 Days of Christmas," your guide to the 25 best Christmas movies ever made. They’re in no particular order, so feel free to pick and choose!
We all have that favorite Christmas movie that we watch at least five times within the month of December (*cough* Charlie Brown *cough*). And if you’re wondering where to find all of these deliciously festive movies, check out the media center on the 2nd floor of O’Neill.
