This Christmas, don't feel pressured to attend yet another holiday party. If you'd rather stay in and enjoy a relaxing day in front of the television, you do have options. For the Christmas-lover, ABC Family will be running a marathon of holiday films, from The Santa Clause to National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. But if you're not as excited about more holiday cheer, there are other options, such as a Doctor Who marathon or an evening spent with Duck Dynasty.
