When you think of the winter holiday season, you probably do not think of The CW. This December, the network wants to change that. They are airing special holiday-themed episodes of several of their series -- Gossip Girl, 90210, Hart of Dixie, Arrow and The Vampire Diaries -- early in the month.

Looks like Christmas is going to be hot this year!
