The Secret Life of the American Teenager is returning much earlier than our anticipated March premiere date. Brace yourself, y’all — it’s time for Christmas in November!

Tonight, ABC Family will kick off its annual “25 Days of Christmas” December programming with a special one-off holiday episode, “Hedy’s Happy Holiday House," tonight, Monday, Nov. 19 at 8 p.m. ET.

And if that doesn’t get you excited, there will also be an all-day marathon of our favorite show, starting at 11 a.m. ET today!

If this special sounds vaguely familiar, it’s because Francia Raisa teased us about it a few months ago.

“We just shot a Christmas special, [and] I was such a little kid walking in the room [with] all the toys laying everywhere,” Francia spilled. “My house started smelling like Christmas [and] I’m freaking out that I have to go Christmas shopping. It’s awesome!”

And if that’s not enough, there will also be a special guest coming up.

“We had so much fun filming — when they called cut, none of us stopped playing,” she exclaimed, before spilling the real scoop: “There’s a donkey.”
