For most people, the month of July brings about memories of the beach, Independence Day, hot weather, and time spent with family, but for many others this month is also home to another pivotal time of year: Christmas in July! Here at Beach House Designs, we love getting in the holiday spirit and stocking up for our favorite holiday early in the year. Plus we are heading to market the middle of this month and need space for all of our new merchandise. This month, we will be having our own Christmas in July celebration by offering all Christmas merchandise at 40% off!
The tradition of Christmas in July is an important one for American culture that offers a great way to beat the rush of the holiday season early on by stalking up on supplies. The earliest known celebration of Christmas in July was during the summer of 1933 at a summer camp in North Carolina where they decided to start an annual tradition of setting up a tree and getting a visit from Santa Claus on the first day of July each year. The term was popularized in 1943 with the release of the movie comedy Christmas in July. The U.S. Army and Navy also helped popularize the phrase by starting an early Christmas mailing program called Christmas in July for families with loved ones stationed overseas. Since then, many churches sing Christmas carols in July as a reminder of the important holiday. The Christmas in July party has become a common American staple to contrast the summer heat.
