But to be honest, we are not entire sure how or when exactly this beautiful celebration began. It is a common belief that the tradition started in Europe, although nowadays it is more popular in the U.S. At first, people were throwing parties that reminded them of the actual Christmas festivities in December. They decorated their homes, served cold drinks and foods, such as ice-cream, and exchanged gifts. People often thought that celebrating Christmas in the warm summer month would ensure happy winter holiday season. Besides, who doesn’t like holidays and getting gifts, right?\r\n The Holiday Spot Website shares the following story:\r\n\r\nThis untimely Christmas festival is also often ascribed to a group of Irish tourists who went for a vacation in Sydney's Blue Mountains in the summer months of July in 1980. Away from the summer temperatures in their country, they were overjoyed at the sight of snow there. It is believed that they convinced the proprietor of a local hotel in the Blue Mountains in New South Wales to hold a party called "Yulefest". \r\n\r\nAs with any other holiday, it’s up to you to decide whether you want to acknowledge Christmas in July or not. We here at the Crystal Wonderland see it as a great opportunity for people to gather together and spend some quality time with their loved once. The weather can’t be more perfect, it is easier to travel, and most people are in laid-back vacation mood, which can only contribute to a great family celebration. \r\nHowever, there are others that may say that such holiday is inappropriate or unnecessary. We want to assure you that we do not intent to make anyone feel uncomfortable or pressured to do something against their believes. We are not trying to mock the actual festival held in December or to reduce the significance of the holiday.We are simply trying to bring part of the joy of Christmas into your house in July.
