Christmas in July...in August

My bestie & I love Christmas, like LOVE LOVE LOVE it!  If it were Christmas all year long we would be happy campers.  Last year we had our first Christmas in July" party.  We had a blast last year & knew that we wanted to make this an annual thing.  This summer was cra-zy packed so we were really looking forward to this celebration.  We decided that to a certain extent Christmas in July is much more enjoyable than Christmas: it's relaxing & not rushed.  Also, when you live in the south & summers are brutally hot so you're stuck inside trying not to burn up, this is a fun way to have fun inside.  This is what our party includes:
Wore our jammies
Had quiche & coffee for breakfast
Listened to Christmas music
Read Christmas books
Decorated (and of course ate) Christmas cookies
Did a Christmas craft; built a nativity scene
Exchanged Christmas gifts (everyone gets 1 small gift)
Had a visit from Sheldon (our Elf on the Shelf)
Drank hot cocoa
And just played!!!DSC_0287DSC_0289DSC_0293DSC_0299DSC_0320DSC_0322DSC_0325DSC_0327DSC_0336DSC_0342DSC_0345
So after our Christmas party, it's officially Christmas time... at least in my mind ;-) 
Have you ever had a Christmas in July party? What do you do at yours?
