When to watch your favorite holiday specials on ABC this year

The holiday season is just around the corner, and ABC is preparing to deck the halls with a full slate of holiday shows, movies and specials.

This year's holiday lineup, announced Thursday, includes two new specials: "The Magic Maker" features magician Adam Trent as he puts magic in the hands of everyday people to help them with the biggest and most emotional moments of their lives, while "A Very Boy Band Holiday" features an all-star cast of boy band members singing holiday hits.

Also on the list this year are annual favorites like "The Sound of Music," "CMA Country Christmas," "Olaf's Frozen Adventure," "Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town," "The Great Christmas Light Fight" and two Disney Parks holiday specials. ABC will close out 2021 with previously announced "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2022."
