A Christmas in July Celebration Might Just Be the Boost Your Summer Needs

Before we get into the meat and potatoes of this idea — yes, it does exist. Christmas in July is the midyear break between the holidays and summer vacation. Since the weather is a cool 100-plus degree in Vegas from here on out, this is the perfect reason to celebrate Christmas and break up the summer monotony. Get in the Christmas spirit with these fun facts and ideas to throw your own July event.

Why Did Christmas in July Start?

The first Christmas in July in the USA started at Keystone Camp in North Carolina, with one of the founders creating a holiday event to commemorate the end of summer. Ninety years later, the tradition continues in the USA with fun traditions and a widespread fire-catch of trendy party practices.

How is Christmas in July celebrated?

Expect all of the same chilly-weather perks as the traditional holiday, but with summer twists. Decorations and gifts can be part of the fun, and nobody ever looks bad in a bathing suit with a Santa hat.

Christmas in July Around The World

We know that Christmas in July is mostly a southern living holiday. This begs the question — how is Christmas in July celebrated in the United States? How is Christmas in July celebrated in Australia?

In Australia, this is an unofficial time to celebrate the holiday. Since it’s so hot in the winter, July is prime time for cooler temperatures and enjoying the Northern hemisphere weather perks like hot chocolate by the fire.

Other countries like South Africa, New Zealand, Canada and other southern hemisphere countries adopt this practice year after year.
