Christmas is not just about getting presents -- especially when this may be the year you get head-to-toe pink bunny pajamas. It's also about watching holiday programming on TV. And it's about other things. This year, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day fall conveniently on the weekend, and TV Guide rounded up a handy list of holiday-related programming on various channels. "A Christmas Story" is running in a 24-hour marathon from 8 p.m. Saturday until 8 p.m. Sunday, which would be too much for any other movie but not "A Christmas Story." It never gets old.
