Christmas in July – Really!

I’ve celebrated Christmas in July a number of times and in different ways through my life.

One of my favorites was in Wildwood NJ when we rented a house for a week in July. Most/all of the residents/owners had lived in a neighborhood/area in South Philly and had retired/moved down the shore, so they decided to celebrate Christmas together in the summer. And it was a huge block party with food (mostly Italian!), music, games for young and old and Santa arrived on the firetruck, too. So much fun and it was great that they included visitors and friends – making us part of their families.

It’s been years since my family did that but I’m not above looking for ways to celebrate and this year, I’m doing it with. . . BOOKS! (I told you all it was BOOKS BOOKS BOOKS week!). As the holiday weekend continues and the summer kicks into gear, you might be looking for some books to read on the beach or at the pool or while traveling? Well, it just so happens, here’s a way to win some – and an ereader, too! Just sign up for this Christmas in July Booksweeps for your chance!

And Happy Christmas in July! (Giveaway ends July 12 so enter soon!)
