We love to give and to receive, because new stuff is always fun, isn’t it? This Christmas in July, why not make a gift of the ultimate cordless vacuum cleaner, and share the joys of a Gtech AirRam? There are, after all, many, many messes to be made in the summertime.
The kids may be back from school, the beach sand may follow your feet inside, and you’ll probably host a party or two. Christmas in July extends beyond the gift of giving, however, it’s a miniature culture. Have a party, bust out that Santa Claus suit and make those red pants into cutoffs!
Here’s our salute to the beloved pretend-real holiday, Christmas in July.
Christmas in July has multiple source points in history. The first documented use of the phrase was from Camp Keystone, an all-girls sleep-away camp in 1933, and the festivities included an actual tree, presents, and visit from Santa Claus, himself.
In 1942, the Calvary Baptist Church in D.C. found a humanitarian niche with Christmas in July, rounding up gifts to be eventually distributed among various missions worldwide, to the underprivileged. The U.S. Post Office teamed up with military official to launch their own Christmas in July in 1944; it was designed to set up early gift mailing to men and women overseas. Unfortunately for them, our cordless vacuum cleaner wasn’t invented just yet.
This Christmas in July, have a real celebration. Give the holiday more than just a name; live it! We recommend going all out, because if you’re going to do something, it’s worth doing right. Exchange gifts, have Santa pay a visit, decorate accordingly, and really try to feel it.
The reason: why not? There’s an indescribable something to Christmas, and who says you can’t reach that feeling in July? Best of luck, and Merry Christmas in July!
