Christmas is coming early for One Direction fans — the band just announced that they'll have their own holiday special in the United States on Dec. 23.

Their first U.S. TV special is sure to have fans excited, and the fact that it may be holiday-themed (a.k.a. hopefully a throwback to classic cheesy Christmas specials) is even better. Not a lot of details were immediately available, but the announcement comes as part of a larger partnership between NBC and the band that will also include a Today show performance Nov. 17, the day of Four's release.
