It's a goal of mine every single Christmas to make sure I get my "Christmas requirements" checked off.

Whether it's something I like to do, or specific songs I need to hear, it's important for my personal holiday tradition maintenance.

A huge part of that "maintenance" is a trifecta of animated Christmas specials that are older than or AS old as I am.

But in recent years, I haven't caught all three -- Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, How the Grinch Stole Christmas (no, not the 2000 movie with Jim Carrey; GOT to have Boris Karloff), and A Charlie Brown Christmas.

I've either missed one or two and that hasn't been acceptable.

This year, I went out of my way to make sure my butt was planted in front of the TV when they came on.

If these holiday specials are important to your Christmas celebration and you've missed any or all of the airings, well, there's good news.

Two of the them are re-airing and one can be found on On Demand.

Freeform will re-air Rudolph on Christmas Eve at 7:50PM and on Christmas Day at 2:40PM. Both central time. Both very ODD times, granted.

As for the Grinch, NBC will "re-stream" his invasion of Whoville Christmas evening at 7PM Central.

As for the Peanuts gang, they're resting comfortably on On Demand. I haven't found a network that's re-airing A Charlie Brown Christmas between now and Christmas night.

There you go. I hate missing these specials and I'd hate for anyone who makes them a part of their traditions to miss them, too.
