‘Tis the season to be spooky! Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has a holiday special hitting Netflix on December 14th. The series took to Twitter today to share an official announcement and a nice gif of Salem with a sweet ‘lil elf hat.



In addition to that gif, the show’s twitter bio has been updated to read, “There’s no sledding in my life without you. A Midwinter’s Take coming December 14.” That’s just over a month from now! I do wonder if there’s a typo there, because A Midwinter’s Tale seems like it makes a little more sense as a title. Either way, I cant wait to see this!


If the special turns out to just be fifty minutes of Salem wearing an elf hat, I’m on board for that. If it’s ninety minutes of that, well, I’ll have to update my list of favorite holiday specials.

Have you already requested off from work for December 14th? You should! Then you could watch the special over and over and over again until your eyes bleed red and green! Isn’t that what this time of year is all about? A word of caution, though: if you plan to watch a Netflix release as soon as it drops, check your time zones. Almost every time, Netflix releases hit at midnight in the Pacific time zone. This is how I ended up watching the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina premiere at 2 in the morning. It was worth it, obviously, but I didn’t realize that at first.

Are you ready for some Season’s Bleatings? Because, like, bleating is what a goat does? And there’s a goat in Sabrina? Puns aren’t my strong suit. For more information on Chilling Adventures, check out this review of the series, this article about the real-life legal battle between Netflix and, uh, Satan, some on-the-ground reporting from ace reporter Grant DeArmitt, and you can stare into the inky abyss by clicking on my name at the top of this article and reading anything about the show from the past year. A lot of my speculation turned out to be wrong! Ha! Oh what a year!
