Christmas In July

Posted by terrepruitt on December 29, 2021


I’ve heard it said that some people believe that Jesus was actually born in July. I have also hear of “Christmas in July” which I always thought was a marketing ploy. I have not looked up either idea, but at the beginning of the week I was taking a class and the instructor mentioned how winter is the time when our bodies need to slow down and relax. And it dawned on me how absurd it is that we have two major Holidays so close together and in winter. I wish the United States celebrated Thanksgiving in October as our neighbors do. And now I am wishing we had Christmas in July.

A busy, pressured filled Holiday in the middle of summer seems much more logical. The days are long, energy is up it seems right. People could gather outside for cookouts and there could be more gatherings because we wouldn’t be restricted to weekends.  In summer people are willing to do things after work because it is still light and warm. It would also be easier on the people who have a lot of people to buy for because there would be “more time” because it is easier to drive without the threat of bad weather and the days are longer. The more I think about it the more it just makes sense.

Then December could be for what it is actually for . . . it could be a time of rest and “hibernation” we could go into the new year fortified and refreshed.

🙂 I was just kinda thinking it made sense.  Just a thought. What do you think?
