Christmas in July!
It takes a vivid imagination to envision snow falling in July, especially deep in the heart of Texas where we usually hit 100 degree days throughout the summer.
There are many ways to celebrate Christmas. I grew up spending Christmas on the beach of a small deserted island. True it was December 25 instead of mid-July, but in a way they are the same. We’d take a picnic, snorkels, masks, and fins, and explore for exotic underwater treasures.
Instead of snowmen, we had sandmen. Instead of a sled, we zipped around on water skis. Instead of Santa’s sled being pulled by reindeer, it was pulled by a speed boat.
When I spent my first Christmas in cold weather I fell in love with Christmas Irish style. Like the one at Winterthorne Castle in my novella Christmas Spirits where love and family reunions make the holidays special. It’s part of my Sheikhs of the Golden Triangle Series.
What does Christmas in July mean to you? Christmas trees, a white landscape, ice skating, prettily wrapped gifts, turkey dinners and snowmen? Or can you adapt Christmas to true July weather in the Northern Hemisphere. See yourself lounging on the beach with a Candycane Daiquiri and a hunk massaging coconut oil – or is that peppermint oil – into your shoulders? Hmmmm… Merry Christmas, anytime!
