How to Celebrate Christmas in July

Looking for ideas for how to celebrate Christmas in July?

Whether you are planning to celebrate a little all throughout the month or just on July 25th, it's so much fun to get a taste of the holidays smack dab in the middle of the summer!

In this post, I'm including some of our favorite ideas for adding a little holiday spirit to the month of July! We usually celebrate on July 25th, and these are a few of the things we like to do:

On the night of July 24th, our kiddos wear their Christmas PJs to bed.
(Psst...Last year's set will do!)

All day long - on the 25th - we play our favorite Christmas Music.
Around here, we are big fans of Christmas music - actually listening to it throughout the year.

We set up a few simple holiday decorations - a small Christmas tree, a light-up snowman, a reindeer cookie jar - whatever we're in the mood to do! Some years I've gone hog-wild with this and other years, I've kept it pretty simple.

Mealtimes include festive Christmas dishes. Last year, this was snowman-themed paper plates, and the kids loved it!

I like to get everyone a small gift/treat - an ornament (to use in December) or a Christmas movie download/Christmas album are usually my go-to ideas on this.

For our special Christmas in July celebration, it's fun to enjoy holiday-themed crafts/activities...and treats.

When it comes to celebrating Christmas in July, the sky is the limit! You can do as little or as much as will fit your family - making loads of fun memories in the process!
