The 89-year-old actress, from the TV Land comedy "Hot in Cleveland," will appear in a short sketch called "A White Christmas."
The cable channel was looking for a "warm grandmotherly type" and White fit the bill.
After the holidays, White will celebrate her 90th birthday and she will be feted by Hollywood stars in an NBC special to air January 16.
Her new reality series "Off Their Rockers," which is dubbed as a "Punk'd" for senior citizens, will also be premiering after her televised special.
