Freezing French Bread?

Hi all i am new to the forum and looking for some advice on bread. It might sound like a strange question but will fresh French bread be ok to freeze? Only reason i ask is that we want fresh bread on Christmas Day, therefore i was going to get some French sticks and Pain de Campagne Longue or Batards, etc... Will it be fairly fresh if i were to put it in the freezer as soon as i got back from the shop, and then used on Christmas Day? I would buy part baked ones, however, Ive never seen part baked French Sticks or the Pain de Campagne Longue or Batards, etc... I have only seen part baked baguettes and ciabattas, which i dont really want. Any help or advice is great. Thanks all.
