National Geographic Channel

Beginning at 9 a.m. ET/PT on Christmas Eve, catch a marathon of The Legend of Mick Dodge that may make you appreciate your fireplace a bit more. National Geographic Channel takes viewers back to our very first encounter with Mick living off the land in the rough-and-tumble rawness of the (Ho, Ho... ) Hoh Rainforest. Then, during the chaos of Christmas Day, put mind over holiday madness with a Brain Games marathon beginning at 9 a.m. ET/PT. Preparing for the most wonderful time of year may be tricky, but these Brain Games are even trickier.

It's a new year and a new you, but before turning a new leaf, make the resolution to reminisce with 18 straight hours of The '80s: The Decade That Made Us and The '90s: The Last Great Decade? beginning New Year's Eve at 9 a.m. ET/PT. Then, on New Year's Day, retreat into solitude with a Locked Up Abroad marathon starting at 9 a.m. ET/PT. Invite the new year - and former captives - into your home to hear the daunting details of days in captivity.

Nat Geo WILD

Holiday stress can make the claws come out. This year, leave the catfights to Nat Geo WILD's feisty felines with Big Cat specials beginning Wednesday, Dec. 24, at 12 p.m. ET/PT. From "Tiger Dynasty" to "Lion Gangland," escape the cold and get cuddly with some big cats. And while you're enjoying your delicious bites on Christmas Day, sink your teeth into a marathon of Shark specials beginning at 12 p.m. ET/PT.

Let your wild side out on New Year's Eve with five hours of Caught in the Act beginning Wednesday, Dec. 31, at 12 p.m. ET/PT. But the party doesn't stop there! Find your inner (party) animal with the best of Animals Gone Wild starting at 5 p.m. ET/PT. And finally, as we say goodbye to 2014, get ready to say farewell to Dr. Oakley with a New Year's Day marathon of Dr. Oakley, Yukon Vet beginning at 12 p.m. ET/PT, followed by the season one finale on Saturday, Jan. 3. It may be a new year, but Dr. Oakley is still the same ol' tough vet momma of the Yukon.
