Are you looking for festive ways to enjoy the holidays at home? Once a season for parties and events, 2020 celebrations will be had in the comfort of our homes. My family is not letting the cancellation of past traditions dull our holiday spirit! With special holiday content from Xfinity X1, which brings the best of live, streaming and music apps together, we can find merriment right on our living room TV.
Xfinity Holiday Anytime
Where oh where to begin? As an Xfinity X1 family we have access to unlimited hours of holiday movie favorites, seasonal TV shows, The Yule Log, music, and more. There is something merry and bright for every age, young to old, at any time of day.
When I was a child I remember circling the Christmas specials I wanted to watch in the weekly newspaper TV guide.. It was exciting to count down the days until the premier of “Rudolph.” But there was always the disappointment when, and if, we missed a beloved classic. Long gone are the days of missing out on holiday favorites now that we have Xfinity On Demand.
There is also an option to rewatch new and classic seasonal specials from Xfinity On Demand. My husband and I enjoy watching Saturday Night Live holiday episodes while our daughters love to see their favorite characters celebrating the season.
Getting in the Holiday Spirit at Home
From countless holiday music stations to the iconic The Yule Log, we can add a bit of cheer to our home while decking the halls. With the Xfinity X1 Voice Remote we can say “Holiday Music” and soon hear Christmas classics throughout the room.
Another fun feature: Yule Kittens. My daughters discovered the kid-friendly variations to The Yule Log on Xfinity X1 with adorable puppies, kittens, and some other furry surprises playing by the fire. There is something soothing about kittens in the background while working on holiday crafts.
The Holiday Countdown
One of the most exciting holiday features from Xfinity X1 is the interactive Holiday Countdown app that is available through the holiday season right on your TV. The features of the Holiday Countdown include on-screen games, sing-alongs and read-alongs, as well as a countdown to Santa’s departure. Our family enjoys checking Santa’s schedule almost every day!
During the pandemic of 2020, circumstances require us to stay home safely with our families. We are thankful we can find joy, fun, and cheer in our living room with Xfinity’s holiday content and features.

Doing a countdown is such a great idea! I think we’ll all be enjoying it at home this year, and these are fun tips.

We love to make countdowns with the kids. We also watch A LOT of holiday movies and shows. Liam is super into Rudolph this year.
There is so much pleasure in counting down to something you are looking forward to. Children love v to do it!
I gotta admit, I’m pretty envious! Xfinity sounds amazing, especially during this time of the year. We’ve been using a lot of streaming platforms for our holiday movie watching sessions, but having access to all that Xfinity has to offer would be AMAZING. Maybe this will be something we invest in during the coming year!
We love doing a countdown as well! It’s always so exciting to see us get closer to Christmas. Watching holiday movies always puts me into a good spirit!

I love holiday movies – there’s just something about them that make the Christmas season FEEL like Christmas! Merry Christmas to you and yours!
The Yule Log is a must for Christmas! This sounds perfect for watching Christmas movies together with the family. Have a wonderful holiday season!
I love this! I really love the idea of a countdown – the anticipation is a lot more fun than the actual day in some ways!
