It isn't uncommon for viewers in [[ChristmasInAmerica the USA]] and [[AVeryBritishChristmas the UK]] to find Christmas specials and Christmas movies dominating certain TV Channels for part of the week in the height of midsummer.



** All of the "Shop at Home" channels in the US (QVC, Home Shopping Network) air Christmas in July specials each year. It used to serve a more pragmatic purpose though. Many companies had long processing and delivery times ("Please allow six to eight weeks for delivery" was their mantra.)

* British TV tends not to take note of when the Christmas episodes fall in imported American series. So you end up with little inconsistences like the Christmas episode of ''Series/{{Frasier}}'' airing in April, or the Barone family in ''Series/EverybodyLovesRaymond'' celebrating their Christmas in July.
