It's impressive just how many times words like "Christmas," "love," "marry," "merry," "mistletoe," "Santa," "family," "home"—even "'tis" and "yuletide"—have been strung together into holiday movie titles. It's like the Hollywood version of popcorn tinsel. Things get really crazy when you factor in the saccharine made-for-TV movies that dominate channels like Hallmark and Lifetime in November and December.

But everyone has a sweet tooth, especially this time of year, and especially when it comes to holiday films. Here's a long list of Christmas movies airing on TV this Thanksgiving weekend, starting Thursday morning at 6 a.m. and continuing through Sunday night (all times in ET, check your local listings for the most up-to-date information in your time zone).
