Christmas in July functions and events are becoming more and more popular in Australia, especially for pubs, clubs and restaurants. Christmas is traditionally held in December in accordance with religious beliefs and in the Northern hemisphere this occurs during Winter. Big hot meals and winter themed decorations form a big part of Christmas celebrations for many people in the Northern hemisphere, however here in Australia Christmas is one of the hottest times for us. Big roast dinners and snowflake decorations are a big contradiction to the typical Christmas for many Aussies, who tend to head to the beach or have a BBQ to celebrate the special occasion.
Christmas in July therefore provides us with a wonderful opportunity to experience the festivities in the colder months. It is a time for businesses to theme their half-yearly sales and for restaurants and pubs to host a themed event. Some individuals and families also celebrate Christmas in July with a themed meal with loved ones. Bon bons or Christmas crackers are very popular at this time of year as well as Winter themed decorations. Santa hats, elf hats and other types of Christmas themed costume items are also very popular at this time of year. A lot of decorations centre around the winter theme specifically with snowflakes, fake snow and snowmen, however red,green and gold and Merry Christmas designs can be used to help themed your celebration.
