So what is Christmas in July? Well, the real Christmas, the December one, is slap bang in the middle of the Australian summer. So it’s hot here, very hot! Now imagine cooking a full roast turkey dinner, with all the trimmings and enjoying them in the Blue Mountains when there is possibly a bit of snow about in July.
Christmas in July imitates the festivities of the actual Christmas and signifies our yearning for the coolness of winter amid the scorching summer months. Share with all the spirit of this unique season. Jingle all the way again!
If you tend to skip the traditional Christmas meals from the northern hemisphere in December because of our summer heat, there is no need to miss out completely. Celebrate Christmas in July and indulge in roasts and puddings this month instead!
