Merry Christmas in July!

Merry Christmas in July! Even The Salvation Army recognizes our celebration (smile!). During the week, when I was walking along Chestnut street in busy Center City Philadelphia, The Salvation Army had Christmas Elves with kettles and bells on several corners.

The last of our awesome Christmas books today! I'm sure you have your own to share. We'd love to hear what's on your list...

Have a great week...and, Merry Christmas!

History of Christmas Past by Suzi Love

History of Christmases Past is Book 1 in the Historical Events Collection by Australian romance author Suzi Love.

The book is an historical and pictorial collection of information about the traditions of Christmas through the centuries, including the religious aspects, decorations, games, food and plays. The large collection of historical images ranges from paintings to etchings and postcards. The book covers the eras of history since the beginning of Christmas celebrations and through to the Victorian era. It demonstrates the different ways Christmas is celebrated in countries around the world and looks at things like Yule logs, Christmas Carols and decorations, and the exchanging of cards and gifts.

  1. Many people celebrate Christmas in July as well as people who have birthdays around Christmas. I remember times when children I knew had birthdays around or on December 25th and had their parties in the summer. Recently the Hallmark channel had a series of Christmas stories celebrating Christmas in July. I don’t have any special books that I like about Christmas but the first short story I sold was a Christmas story.

    1. Thanks for visiting, Marion. Any chance we'll see your Christmas story published again?
