NEW YORK, NY - December 6, 2013 - The holiday season is in full swing, and top morning talk show "LIVE with Kelly and Michael" is getting into the spirit with three weeks of programming filled with festive theme weeks, top celebrities and the show's annual Christmas Eve special.

And, "LIVE with Kelly and Michael Cozy Christmas" wouldn't be complete without an appearance from the jolly old elf himself, Santa Claus, before his busy night begins.

Throughout December, "LIVE" will continue to feature interviews with top Hollywood celebrities, including two-time Academy Award(R) winner EMMA THOMPSON, four-time Oscar(R)-nominated actress AMY ADAMS, "The Wolf of Wall Street" star JONAH HILL, and Golden Globe winner JOHN GOODMAN.
