As I was driving home Sunday night, I saw my first house that lit up for the holidays. I think the "too soon" argument for me has mellowed in my old age. I even started listening to Christmas music the other day. And the timely tradition of TV Christmas specials is just around the corner. 

CBS, home of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and Frosty the Snowman has released their holiday special schedule.

First up, on Thanksgiving (11/28) the network airs their Thanksgiving Day Parade (7:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.)
