Christmas in July?

After doing some homework about how the tradition of Christmas in July started I found that Wikipedia had this written:

"In the northern hemisphere during the summer months the weather becomes increasingly warm and many people crave the atmosphere of cooler temperatures, gift giving and holiday spirit. To satisfy this, some people throw parties during the month of July that mimic the holiday of Christmas. The features of Christmas in July include Santa Claus, ice cream and other cold foods and gifts. Nightclubs often host parties open to the public."

It is HOT in July and I think I can understand that craving :)

In the spirit of things I created a Christmas layout of my own. Since it seems to be the time I take the most photographs this seemed the perfect time to have a 2 pager to add to my Christmas albums. I took my little one out last December to the local Toys R Us and let her show me everything she wanted. These are some of the things she chose. What a fun trip it was too! She is forever watching TV and saying "I want that Santa Claus" like she thinks he is listening, and "he" is ;) so I thought that would be a great title for this.



Guess how many days it is to Christmas???

  2. What a COOL idea! I should do a Christmas in July, especially since it hit 116 degrees today! I bet Santa would be in a Speedo and needing lots of sun screen! I may have to look into doing this sort of a thing, as everybody in my family knows I march to my own beat!
