Christmas in July is a Christmas celebration during the last weekend in July. But you can celebrate on any day you want because Christmas in July isn’t an official holiday.

In the southern hemisphere, Christmas is actually celebrated in the summer. Residents from that area throw Christmas parties in July when it’s the peak month of their winter.

How to celebrate Christmas in July

Decorate a summer pineapple instead of a traditional Christmas tree. 

Or play a favorite midsummer game of tossing water balloons to cool off from the summer heat. But make sure you call it a “snowball fight” and use red and green water balloons filled with ice-cold water!

Here are more fun and festive ideas for decking the AC-chilled halls and celebrating Christmas in summer’s July.

Indulge in holiday dishes in July like you won’t eat ’em again until December (because you probably won’t)!

For breakfast, wake up to reindeer pancakes or strawberry banana Santa pancakes— duh! Out of respect for the reindeer, I often use turkey bacon!

Make Christmas in July strawberry Santas 

Ingredients

  • 16 oz. package fresh California strawberries, washed
  • 8 oz. low-fat cream cheese, softened at room temperature
  • 4 Tbsp. honey or powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • ½ cup mini chocolate chips

 

Best DIY Strawberry Santas Recipe

 

Directions

  • On a cutting board, slice the stem off a strawberry (try to cut it as “flat” as possible since the Santa-berries will use that as a base).
  • Cut the top third of the strawberry; this will be used as the “hat.”
  • In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, honey or powdered sugar, and vanilla. Mixture will be thick so it’s best that the cream cheese is at room temperature. I use whipped cream cheese.
  • Transfer the filling to a piping bag with a small closed star tip.
  • Pipe a 1-inch tall swirl of frosting for the head and pipe two little swooshes for the mustache on the front of that swirl.
  • Pipe the buttons on the front of the bottom strawberry and pipe the top of the hat.
  • Top with hat and add chocolate chip eyes.
