Here are the newest Hallmark movies for this year mid-summer:
A Royal Christmas Crush

The Christmas Reboot
The Christmas Reboot starring Vanessa Lengies and Corey Sevier will air on July 15.
A Christmas wish gives Renee (Lengies) the successful life she’d always dreamed of. This new reality is perfect, except for one thing…she is no longer married to her husband Aaron (Sevier). Now, Renee must race against the clock to win him back before Christmas Eve.

CHRISTMAS KEEPSAKE WEEK
You might also hear Christmas in July on the Hallmark Channel be referred to as Christmas Keepsake Week. (It’s one and the same so don’t get confused.)
During their July Christmas celebration, Hallmark releases their keepsake ornament for the year so this just tends to tie it all nicely together.
Great American Family (GAC Family) Christmas in July
GAC Family (formerly Great American Country) launched September 2021 featuring family-friendly series, original holiday movies and seasonal romcoms that celebrate faith, family and country.
More to come in 2023: Great American Family is expanding its Christmas movie offerings with 21 new original titles. Called “Great American Christmas,” the network’s holiday fare will kick off in October with its largest lineup ever.
What is Christmas in July?
Many businesses offer Christmas in July specials (like QVC), so watch for holiday deals and promotions. It’s a great chance to be a frugal shopper or start your holiday shopping early. If you own a small business, consider hosting a Christmas in July sale for your customers.
HOW DID CHRISTMAS IN JULY BEGIN?
As with anything, there are a few variations to the story. The one that tends to be more popular is that this concept stemmed from a summer camp where they decided to make 2 days in July holiday-themed. They went all out with fake snow, a gift exchange, and even an appearance from the big guy (Santa) himself.
FUN WAYS TO CELEBRATE A JULY CHRISTMAS
Tuning in to the Hallmark channel and binge-watching the shows are great, but let’s not forget that you can have even more holiday fun at home during your Hallmark Christmas in July celebration.
We all know that exchanging gifts is all part of the holiday season. Gather family and friends and provide small inexpensive or white elephant gifts to keep guests laughing.
Once the gift exchange is done, it should come as no surprise that everyone is going to be hungry. Some of my favorite holiday recipes are:
- Adorable Red Truck Christmas Cookies
- Easy Christmas Grinch Bark Candy
- Homemade Christmas Chocolate Covered Cherries
Make certain that everyone gets matching pajamas, sings Christmas carols, and does whatever other holiday traditions that you normally do during the month of December.
If you’re going to go to all the trouble of recreating Christmas in July, go all out for the occasion by being as festive and fun as possible. And if you have some ugly sweaters, crank up the air conditioner put those on as well.
