If you’re a fan of Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas” who can’t get enough of it, you’re in for a holiday treat. Freeform has announced its 2022 “25 Days of Christmas” programming lineup, and peppered among the multiple viewings of holiday staples like “The Santa Clause” and “Home Alone” is Tim Burton’s stop-motion animated classic, proving that even Disney can’t decide if “The Nightmare Before Christmas is a Halloween movie or a Christmas movie.

“The Nightmare Before Christmas” will air three times during the “25 Days of Christmas,” with the first airing scheduled for Sunday, December 4, at 2:20 PM. Subsequent viewings will be available on Saturday, December 17, at 5:15 PM and Friday, December 23, at 3:20 PM. Unfortunately, all three airings appear to be the standard version of the film and not the Pop N’ Knowledge version, which premiered during this year’s “31 Nights of Halloween” and featured trivia about the film, which popped up on the screen throughout its showing.

Freeform’s “25 Days of Christmas” is a month-long programming event, which will return on Thursday, December 1. Freeform will be showing all of your Christmas favorites, including “Home Alone,” “The Santa Clause” trilogy, “Disney’s A Christmas Carol,” as well as beloved classics like “Frosty the Snowman,” “Miracle on 34th Street” (1994), and more!
