‘Tis the season for holiday television specials, from favorite holiday movies to special TV events featuring our favorite stars. I love this time of year and have been known to max out my DVR, forcing my children to sit through hour after hour of tear-jerking holiday moments.
While I enjoy the holiday line-up this year like most, I can’t help but wonder about the holiday specials that might have been. What would happen if Miley came back as Hannah Montana just one more time? What crazy holiday hijinks might ensue if Stan the dog blogged for the holidays? Check out the 10 Disney Channel holiday specials I wish they had made.
