For devout lovers of all things Christmas, once a year isn’t nearly often enough!
Thus was born Christmas in July, a chance to enjoy the spirit of walking through a winter wonderland even when the weather outside is anything but.
Wondering how to take part in this mid-year celebration? Take a look below as we share some of our favorite ideas.
Throw a party
One of the best ways to celebrate the holidays is with a party—and Christmas in July could be your perfect excuse to throw one now… not that you needed one!
To really make the most of the “in July” aspect of this halfway holiday, host your party in the pool for an easy way to cool off. Don’t feel the need to prepare a Christmas ham with all the fixings, however—we’ve got you covered in that department, with Peach Valley catering that makes poolside enjoyment easy.
Looking for a simple décor idea? Find a couple of red pool noodles, then bend them into candy cane shapes. Secure the shape with fishing line and wrap the noodle with white masking tape. Voila! You’ve got a few floating decorations perfect for your party—and of course, come December, you can toss them back in for a fun holiday flourish.
Indulge in rich treats
The holidays center around food, so Christmas in July should be no different. Don’t be afraid to indulge! Peach Valley picks like our Buttermilk Drop Biscuits & Sausage Gravy or Pecan Pancakes will take you back to Christmas morning, where rich, comforting flavors are king.
Build a sandman at the beach
Florida’s beautiful beaches are accessible all year-round, but we think now is an especially opportune time to head to yours and build a sandman! Top yours off with a Santa hat and snap a photo for your family holiday card.
If nothing else, Christmas in July is a great reminder of the meaning of giving, all year long. You can help with your favorite charity, volunteer your time for a community project, or simply donate your nonperishables to a local food pantry.
We hope that these ideas help you satisfy your Christmas cravings until December! And besides… there’s never a “wrong” time for family fun, delicious treats, and the joy of giving.
