Celebrate Christmas in July

We don't think that Christmas should be once a year,  lets celebrate Christmas in July.  We are not talking the whole hog, but what a great excuse to get your friends and family together for a mid-year celebration

Here are some ideas to kickstart your July Yuletide festivities: 

Christmas Movie Marathon: There is nothing quite like a cheesy Christmas movie marathon to get the festive juices flowing: Light the fire, grab your favourite blanket, make some popcorn and indulge in watching your favourite flicks – National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, Love Actually, A Christmas Story and Elf are some of our favourites.

Ugly Jumper Competition: With a traditional Aussie Christmas being too warm to don an ugly Christmas jumper, celebrating in July provides the chance to find out which of your family and friends can come up with the most cringe-worthy attire!

Christmas Karaoke: The magic of Christmas music shouldn’t have to wait! Bust out the karaoke machine and sing some Jingle Bells or Christmas tunes!

Christmas Trivia: Create a list of Christmas-themed trivia questions and play in teams to have a fun competition and keep the whole family entertained.

Enjoy a Traditional Christmas Feast: Many families choose to have a cold Christmas meal in the December heat, which makes Christmas in July the perfect opportunity to get the carving board out and start roasting those duck-fat potatoes.

These are a few suggestions on how to celebrate Christmas in July that will help lift spirits at the coldest time of the year. It's the perfect opportunity to catch up with family and friends, enjoy each other’s company, have fun and indulge in hot roast meals and steamed plum puddings.
