Christmas in July is one of my best childhood memories. When I was about 10, my grandparents lived in Harrisville, Michigan. Christmas in July was a way we could all come up to their house in this sleepy Lake Huron town and have a great time as a family.
Our Christmas in July party consisted of all of us grandchildren going Christmas caroling on the lawns of our grandparents neighbors. Christmas in July also involved presents, but they were silly presents such as water guns and baby dolls.
A Christmas in July party is a great party that you can have for your family. If you are interested in a Christmas in July party, here are some Christmas in July Party activities for you.
Christmas in July Party Activities #1
A great Christmas in July activity is to go Christmas caroling. This could be as simple as singing for elderly neighbors or friends of the family who live near the festivities. If you would like to go caroling as one of your Christmas in July party activities you can also call a convalescent home in your area and sing for the residents. That way you can share the joy of your Christmas in July party with others.

A great Christmas in July activity would be having a water balloon fight. Buy white water balloons so they look similar to snow balls. This is a great way to enjoy a Christmas in July party while trying to be festive.

What Christmas in July party would be complete without Christmas Cookies? Have some sugar cookies pre-made before your Christmas in July party. Have a Christmas cookie decorating contest and have a small prize for the person who decorates the best cookies.
Christmas in July Party Activities #4
At your Christmas in July party you can play a game called “Bad Santa”. Everyone needs to bring a gift that cost around the same price, typically $10-$20. Wrap the presents and set them in a bag. Have everyone take a present out of the bag. One person opens their gift at a time. If they would rather have someone else’s gift, they go and take it and give that person the gift that they opened. This is a fun Christmas in July party that will cause a lot of laughs!

Christmas in July should also bear a certain Christmas spirit. Give back to your community by cleaning up trash on the side of the road or volunteering at your local Humane Society. Some other great Christmas in July activities that would give back to others would be to make Christmas cookies and take them to a nursing home or children’s hospital. If you live near a Children’s hospital, go buy some toys at the dollar store, wrap them up, and hand them out. There are so many Christmas in July activities that give back to the community. You will find these Christmas in July activities to be the most rewarding.
