Surprising Santa Claus
Who Should Watch: Crafters, DIY’ers, holiday makers
Santa Claus is more than a mythical gift-giver; it’s also a small town in southwestern Indiana. Lara Spencer, host of Surprising Santa Claus, along with a team of construction workers, home renovators, designers and volunteers, will be giving the town of Santa Claus the biggest Christmas present it may have ever received. Two teams will race against time as they tackle two home renovations and a special bonus upgrade for the town square. Mark your calendars for Friday, December 25 at 9PM on HGTV Canada.
Who Should Watch: House hunters, people who visit open houses for fun
Nothing makes winter feel cozier than curling up with an old favourite. House Hunters has been airing since 1999 and has spawned numerous iterations including House Hunters International and House Hunters Renovation. You likely know the drill, but the show follows house shoppers as they learn what to look for when buying a new property, and the factors to consider to make sure the space is the right fit. From start to finish, it’s an emotional roller coaster that has captivated audiences for decades. Get a cup of eggnog or light the menorah and join the party.
