ABC Family's '25 Days Of Christmas' Schedule Deserves 25 Days Of Snacks To Go With It

Some people are annoyed by how we drag out holidays here in the good ol' U.S. of A., but I have to say, I like it. Perhaps it's because I have a hard time letting things go? Whatever. All I know is that there are a slew of other overly festive people who feel similarly to me. And, I am sure they're rejoicing over the fact that, according to Entertainment Weekly, ABC Family's 25 Days of Christmas schedule has been released. So, grinches, please take a seat from high atop your cavernous mountain home. Fellow Whos down in Whoville, this one is for you.

What better way to celebrate 25 Days of Christmas than with a viewing party for you and your friends? Right, there isn't. This is, without a doubt, the best way. A viewing party is simple to put together, too. I mean, ABC Family has already got you covered on the entertainment front, so all you really need to do is provide the refreshments. Holiday themed ones, of course. Considering 25 days is a fairly long time to try and put together a menu off the top of your head, I, out of the kindness of my holiday-loving heart, have provided one for you.

Here are the food and/or drinks you should pair with each day of the 25 Days of Christmas schedule, per the site, for your viewing party needs.

A plethora of Santa-themed movies calls for cookies that'd be typically designated to the big guy for all his hard work on Christmas Eve. I say go traditional with homemade chocolate chip. Yum.
