summer christmas.

Standard

is it one of the hottest days of summer?

is it time for our annual

christmas in july/august celebration?

absolutely.

with long-time friends

turkey dinner

wine

christmas cookies

 stories

and 

odds and ends re-gifts to each other

that we’re highly likely

to re-gift to someone else at a later date

no reason to keep the joy of giving all to ourselves.

     now you might reasonably say to me: “why put yourself through all this? why go up to the loft when you know the decorations won’t be there? why untangle the lights when you know they haven’t a chance of working?” and my answer to you is that this is part of the ritual. christmas wouldn’t be christmas without it.’  bill bryson – ‘notes from a big country’
