Christmas in July

We often see the saying Christmas in July and I wondered what it means to you. For many that sell items or own a retail store it's a way to promote a month for sales of a very popular selling time. We all know that everyone buys gifts for Christmas and July is often a slower selling time for retailers.

According to Wikipedia there are a few different ways this started. One is that winter falls in July in the southern hemisphere. Therefore in countries such as Australia, New Zealand and South Africa in order to have Christmas with a winter feel Christmas in July events are undertaken. However, Christmas in December, the usual month, is a far more common practice, despite it being summer.  

We decided to get together this month and have a big celebration of Christmas in July and also quite a few sales on our items. We all love Christmas items and many of us sell them and are always looking for unique Christmas gifts for the people we love. What better Month to look for sales and get a jump on our Christmas Shopping then July? 

So follow our blog this month as we share our items and sales for the month of July.

What fun! I'm going to do this. I have some very special Christmas items that I'm ready to list, but was waiting until I put on a sweater. I'll start with my vintage Old World St. Nicholas (Santa, before Conde Nast gave him a red suit and a big belly). Now, where is that Porcelain faced Saint?

Did you know back in the 1960's my mom had cologne called Christmas in July.
Wonder what happened to that?
