July Rudolph Day is Coming!

Tomorrow is July Rudolph Day!  I missed May and June so I'm not going to miss another month.

If you want to join in the fun, the July Rudolph Day movie is Christmas Vacation.  Time to break out those moose mugs.

Vic took a set as his White Elephant Gift Exchange item at the office and they were a huge hit.  Look for them at Bed Bath and Beyond in the after-Christmas sale for next year.

What's Rudolph Day? Here is the definition according to Organized Christmas:
A few years ago, members of our Christmas community began to observe "Rudolph Day" on the 25th of each month.
On that day, we take a few moments to plan some simple tasks for the month ahead, in order to get ready for Christmas Day with plenty of time to spare. By starting early--and working a bit at a time on each month's Rudolph Day--it's easy to prepare for Christmas, save money on gifts, and cut holiday stress.
Here's the annual line-up with the sub-theme (if there is one) in parentheses:

January - Tie Up Loose Ends (gather ideas and organize your Christmas notebook)
February - Begin a Holiday Letter
March - Birthday Gift-Buying Strategy (party planning for the holiday season)
April - Plan Holiday Crafts
May - Catalog Shopping Tips
June - Recipe Round Up
July - Choose a Holiday Plan (Christmas in July celebration)
August - Craft Control (thinking ahead to Elf on the Shelf)
September - Prepare for Holiday Gifts and Giving
October - Plan Holiday Meals
November - Write Holiday Letter

The bottom line is...prepare for Christmas by doing something every month and make the 25th of each month a Rudolph Day by doing something Christmasy!

I hope you've been enjoying my Christmas in July posts - with the help of my co-Christmas lovers over at the Magical Holiday Home Forums, I think we came up with some great themes.

Check back on the evening of July 25th to see how I celebrated Rudolph Day.
