Set your stopwatch for the Christmas Calendar marathon: Who needs daycare from Wednesday?

It’s TV2’s turn to present a brand new Christmas calendar to the nation – the annual festive TV program that from 1.-24. December, kitchens and play areas across the country close, while mothers and children gather for their full blob of Danish ditzi.

Not every Christmas calendar toes the preferred formula for fantasy meets family fun, but this year’s edition, ‘Comet Christmas’, looks like a sure bet.

Two children participating in a two-week astrophysics camp (it sounded possible on the page) are accidentally teleported away to the distant Planet 9 (someone warns Ed Woods property; Ed: it was Plan 9).

It’s a race against time – they will, after all, miss Christmas Eve on a distant side of the universe – to reunite them with their families.

Not as sacred as yesterday
Shown at 8pm every night, a significant portion of the nation will tune in – and it used to be written into the notebooks of all burglars as a good time to steal garden tools.

But now with streaming, families are choosing their own time to settle down (working late is no longer an excuse, Dad!), Even though the late release time is forcing their arms somewhat.

It will not bother most children as children aged 5-12 tend to commit to one TV marathon every night to also consume a whole load of Christmas calendar from before.

Five at night seems to be possible
TV2 Charlie broadcasts ‘The Christmas Calendar’ (20:30), the inspiring named classic from 1991; DR1 shows its 2014 edition ‘Time Travel’ (19:30), a show so popular that it spawned its own Christmas market; and DR Ramasjang 1989 family pleaser ‘Nissebanden i Grønland’ (17:00, streamed from 18:00).

Note that none of them collide with this year’s TV2 main offer. The domain of the Christmas calendar is a battle zone without ratings.

TV2 Play also streams the 1995 edition ‘Alletiders Nisse’ – elf fun with the immortal Pyrus – while TV2 Zulu has this year’s adult Christmas calendar: ‘Natholdets Julekalender 4’.
