Behold: Freeform's 25 Days Of Christmas Schedule Has Arrived

I can already hear the sleigh bells.

Walt Disney Pictures

There are many ways networks and streaming services go ham for the holidays. There are those like Netflix and Hallmark, where the focus is on all the new offerings for the year, sometimes starting before Halloween. Then there are those like Disney+ and Lifetime, who aren’t going to mess around with skipping spooky season, but are all in on the holiday spirit come the first of November. Then there’s Freeform, whose 25 Days Of Christmas 2022 schedule may have been released on the heels of Halloween, but will politely wait until December, when everyone is good and ready, to start in earnest.

Freeform is one of those networks that knows how to get the full value of a holiday, whether the ones it made up, like its old Harry Potter Weekend or an official one, like Halloween. For example, Freeform celebrates spooky season all through October, refusing even to announce its Christmas lineup until November has officially arrived. The network then runs Thanksgiving TV marathons of holiday-centric episodes in November, refusing to dive into the red and green holiday spirit until the calendars have moved to December.

For some, waiting that long isn’t an option. However, it’s nice to see some restraint for those who tire quickly of the jolly holidays. If you feel a bah humbug when someone plays Mariah Carey when the leaves haven’t even fallen off the trees yet, then Freeform’s schedule is for you.
