Christmas in July 2019 is coming!

What better time to return to blogging than Christmas in July!  If you're a Christmas lover, I hope you will enjoy the next 31 days with me as I discuss the Magical Holiday Home themes for this year:

Week One:  July 1-6 An Upcycle Christmas (upcycle is the concept of recycling or reusing things you already have)
Gift wrapping
Sheet music/Book pages

Week Two:  July 7-13 Advent
For Kids
For Adults
Alternative - Jesse Tree, etc.
Filling the Calendar - Food and non-food

Week Three:  July 14-20 Hygge Christmas Style (Hygge (pronounced Hoo-ga) loosely translates as a sense of comfort, togetherness and well-being)*
Categories similar to Upcycle Christmas

Week Four:  July 21-27 Christmas in the Kitchen
Christmas Menus
Baking tips
What freezes well
Family favorites/traditions

The final days will feature daily themes:
July 28 The ABCs of Christmas - can you come up with your family's version of A to Z?
July 29 Your favorite ornament
July 30 Memories of Christmases Past, A Walk Down Memory Lane
July 31 Wrap It All Up - How did you enjoy CIJ 2019?

There are lots of Hygge resources out there - I highly recommend The Little Book of Hygge, Danish Secrets to Happy Living by Meik Wiking.
