How Christmas in July Started
The very first celebration of this summertime holiday was in North Carolina at a girl’s summer camp. Not a BAND CAMP (you have such a filthy mind.)
The staff at the Keystone Camp decided to throw a Christmas celebration in July of 1933. The event garnered national attention (at least in recreational magazines). It was such a hit, that the holiday became an annual occurrence. Now across both sides of the globe we use it is an excuse to have a party. Here in Australia we like the fact that is is finally cold enough to feel like a northern winter Christmas. In the UK by contrast they love the fact that they can finally have a pool party and a "sand snowman".
Here is our Inappropriate mums guide to throwing a Christmas in July party.
