There’s a new tradition going on and it’s Christmas in July. I know it’s not exactly unheard of but millennials are really taking it to the next level. They are actually celebrating Christmas in July.
When I first heard the term I thought it meant basically a gathering of whoever could make the event and gifts were exchanged as a joke but normally it was just another BBQ get together. That was a few years ago and boy has it made a drastic change.
Millennials are now actually celebrating Christmas in July. It’s not because of an anti-this or anything else it’s simply because of convenience. It’s warmer during those months and a lot less chaotic with kids and school. Christmas doesn’t seem to sneak up on them as much and travel is safer, cheaper and more of a pleasure than during a short window of canceled flights mixed with a million anxious people and their baggage.
Christmas in July seems to be catching on and it’s for all the right reasons. I know it’s something that I will one day consider.
