Are you ready for Christmas?  Christmas in July that is because it has become a ratings bonanza for the Hallmark Channel and it debuts this Friday July 12th.

A Merry Christmas Match kicks off Hallmark Channel’s “Keepsake Christmas,” which runs from July 12 to July 27.

In recent years Hallmark has made it something of a tradition to debut one new Christmas movie per network during its halfway-to-Christmas events in the past. Hallmark will also offer up repeats of fan favorite Hallmark Christmas movies from recent years.

So get that souvenir fruitcake and eggnog out...might want to make that an eggnog shake, turn up the air conditioner and get your pre-holiday fix.

Here is the Christmas in July on Hallmark schedule.
