Why You Should Celebrate Christmas in July

Hey everybody, happy July! We are really getting into the ‘heat’ of summer (pun intended) which is usually around the time that I personally start to long for the holiday season.

Even though July will never be as big a celebration as December (nor should it be), it’s nice to have a little excuse to be festive and have some fun! As I write this I’m listening to some Christmas music and it’s making me feel a little bit more positive which I imagine could be true for lots of people.

2. Summer can get boring

I love summer, don’t get me wrong but it can get a LITTLE boring. There are summer holidays
