There is tons of entertaining Christmas content to watch this holiday season, but none quite so fun as celebrity TV specials.
The classic tradition has been redone in years past with those like John Legend and Bill Murray; and now, Kacey Musgraves is the most recent to debut a star-studded episode. Celebrities like Kendall Jenner, Camila Cabello, and Dan Levy all make an appearance in the country singer's nostalgic TV special.
The recent debut isn't the only one to watch, though. Take a peek back at Judy Garland's original Christmas show from the '60s, Bill Murray's 2015 one, or Pee-Wee Hermann's from the '80s.
Pee-Wee's Playhouse: Christmas Special on Netflix
The wacky and zany playhouse gets the holiday treatment in this TV special from the '80s. There are also tons of celebrity appearances including ones from Cher, Whoopi Goldberg, and Grace Jones. Plus, Pee-Wee is his same hilarious self during the Christmas season, and gets plenty of presents and fruitcakes.
A Very Murray Christmas on Netflix
Bill Murray brought back the time-honored tradition of celebrity Christmas specials in 2015, and brought out pixie cut-era Miley Cyrus to sing a few carols. The entire special was somewhat self-deprecating and poked fun at the TV special genre, but was still a totally fun experience. It's also available to watch on Netflix.
A Legendary Christmas with John and Chrissy on NBC December 12 at 9 p.m.
NBC holds the rights to John Legend's fun Christmas special, so it's only available to catch one time this season. The hilarious celebrity couple host the affair and are joined by celebrities like Kim Kardashian West and Kris Jenner, Awkwafina, Darren Criss, and even Stevie Wonder. Of course, Legend had to serenade his lovely wife Teigen in this adorable number.
Mariah Carey's Merriest Christmas on Netflix
The cheesy holiday movie giant, Hallmark, has the best Mariah Carey concert available and it's on Netflix. Listen to the diva herself as she performs all of her holiday classics. It airs more on the side of TV musical as opposed to any sort of narrative, so it's better for a background entertainment rather than something to pay close attention to.
Jeff Dunham's Very Special Christmas Special on Netflix
To get a comedic moment this holiday season, check out Jeff Dunham and his cast of offensive puppets. Despite his questionable content, he's still one of the highest paid comedians in the industry, as of 2018. His 2008 Christmas special is definitely a testament of the times.
A Colbert Christmas: The Greatest Gift of All! on Amazon for $8
This Christmas special holds three Emmy nominations and one win. Stephen Colbert hosts a holiday get-together in a log cabin. There are celebrity appearances from Willie Nelson, Elvis Costello, John Legend, Jon Stewart, and Leslie Feist.
The Judy Garland Christmas Special on Amazon for $45
The classic is only available on Amazon to purchase the DVD, and not anywhere to stream. However, there are a few options on YouTube to watch the entire special, if you don't want to dish out that much cash to watch Garland sing "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" again. It's the original TV special, and inspired all of the rest of these holiday moments with everyone's favorite stars.
