‘Indiana Jones,’ ‘The Office,’ ‘The Santa Clause’ & More Christmas Eve TV Marathons

Everett Collection/NBC

Whether you want to sit, relax, and binge some holiday entertainment or holiday content will be your background noise for your holiday plans, there is a slew of fun Christmas Eve TV marathons this year.

There’s an Indiana Jones marathon over on the Paramount Network. Hit episodes of The Office, including the comedy’s Christmas episodes, will be playing all day on Comedy Central. And as always, holiday programming will be running all day long on Freeform (its final days of 25 Days of Christmas), TBS, and TNT (as usual, 24-hours of A Christmas Story are coming our way on the last two).

As a special treat, Showtime is airing a showing of Oscar-contender Everything Everywhere All at Once. And Showtime 2 and USA have Twilight and Harry Potter marathons on the slate.

Below is a guide for the 2022 Christmas Eve TV marathons. Happy holidays!
