Reminder: Christmas In July!

Yep. We celebrate this one too. We celebrate Christmas in July for one reason...it's fun. I started this simple, fun tradition years ago when I had three littles under the age of 5. It was an easy way to add some holiday magic to our lives in the middle of summer. Friday is July 25...Christmas in July! If you want to start your own tradition this year, here are a few simple ways you can add the magic of the holidays to your summer. : )


Grab your favorite Christmas candle and light it for the day...
 
 
Whip up some simple cupcakes with holiday sprinkles...and yes. Boxed is fine. As long as it is Duncan Hines. Simply the best.
 
 
These were ours last year...
 
 
We even wrapped some up for our friends. : )
 
 
 
Wrap up a few small gifts...I shop all year and whenever I find something for one of the kids, I get it and tuck it away. In a super secret spot. That is so secret, even I forget sometimes where it is.
 
 
And pop in some of your favorite Christmas movies!
 
 
There. A super simple fun way to hold you over until the holiday season returns.
Happy Christmas in July!

  13. Billie Jo, Ho Ho Ho(w) sweet! I can imagine that one might forget about the heat of summer with a touch of Christmas. Our next door neighbors were (the boys are now grown) visited by the "summer" Santa each year. :-)
