Merry Christmas…in JULY!
Tis’ the season to begin shopping for Christmas – in July that is! Traditionally, Holidays are enjoyed one at a time - first Halloween, then Thanksgiving, then Christmas. However, it has become a popular tradition of celebrating “Christmas in July”.
The origination of “Christmas in July” is not quite clear. The earliest known occurrence of the celebration was said to start in 1933 at an all-girls summer camp, Camp Keystone, in North Carolina. They celebrated with a Christmas tree, gifts and even a visit from “Santa” himself! The term and concept “Christmas in July” was given its national recognition in 1940 after the release of a movie titled “Christmas in July”. In the movie, a man is tricked into believing he has won $25,000 in an advertising slogan contest. With the new found fortune he buys presents for family, friends and neighbors, and proposes marriage to his girlfriend, only to find out it was a hoax.
Throughout the years “Christmas in July” has grown in popularity as a marketing tool for retailers to benefit from an otherwise dull shopping season. However, we here at Private Island Party use “Christmas in July” as an excuse to do what we do best…PARTY! Fourth of July is passed and Labor Day isn’t for another 2 months…so why not…right?
