Honey Boo Boo holiday specials get premiere dates

We heard they were in the works a few months back, and now TLC’s Here Comes Honey Boo Boo “holladay” specials have finally gotten premiere dates — after all their respective holidays. Oh, well. Maybe they will give you something to look forward to during that post-Christmas/New Year’s lull and help entertain you enough to fight off the after-the-holidays blues.

The Honey Boo Boo “holladay” specials will all be pretty much be airing over the course of a month in January and February, as follows, on TLC:

Halloween special — Jan. 6, 9pm ET/PT

Thanksgiving special — Jan. 13, 9pm ET/PT

Never-before-seen clip show — Feb. 10, 8pm ET/PT

Christmas special — Feb. 17, 8pm ET/PT

Clips and photos from the specials won’t be available for another couple of weeks, but in the meantime, here are some thoughts on Christmas from June (“Mamma”) and Alana (“Honey Boo Boo”). Oh, and here’s a link to where you can find your Honey Boo Boo HOLLAday Nicknamer to help you red (and green)neckognize this holiday season.
