Christmas in July Themes


I was so busy helping to plan the Christmas in July themes over at the Magical Holiday Forums from all of the great ideas that were posted, I completely forgot to post them here.

Week One (July 1-9)
AROUND THE CHRISTMAS TABLE/IN YOUR CHRISTMAS KITCHEN
Holiday foods, traditional foods in your family/from your culture or country of origin, gingerbread, cookies, menus, fancy drink recipes, table d├ęcor and kitchen decorating...anything and everything to do with food and how to prepare it and serve it.

Week Two (July 10-16)
ALL WRAPPED UP
Gifts (homemade, age appropriate), gift lists, gift exchanges, stocking stuffers, wrapping styles, gifts from the heart (charitable giving, blessing bags/kits, Angel Trees, Operation Shoebox).

Week Three (July 17-23)
DECKING THE HALLS
Trees, lighting, indoor/outdoor ideas, nativities, personal style, ornaments (homemade, purchased, hand-me-downs, vintage finds, collectibles), Winter Wonderland, Snowmen, Christmas cottages/villages/trains, penguins.

Week Four (July 24-31)
HOLIDAY FUN/ENTERTAINMENT
Christmas movies, music, theater, books, church and school events, special activities and events in your area, games, holiday books, Christmas travel, Christmas markets, parties and party themes, Advent calendars, Elf on the Shelf, Christmas countdowns.
