What is "Christmas in July"? | Posh Pooch Designs


Where did it start? And By Whom? 
And Why?
I did some investigating and 
found several answers. 

Some say it was invented by retailers to
 get sales during a law sales time, and get rid of previous years Christmas Stock.

 Some say it was invented in Australia, and Southern hemisphere Countires, because the 

weather is reversed, So they will have cold 
weather and snow at Christmas.

Another post said that back before Air Travel, if you had relatives or missionaries in other countries, you wanted to send gifts to, you had to get them posted by the middle of July for them to get them by Christmas.

Another person said it was invented at summer camps,

 for fun gifts and celebrations.

This is my theory:
It was started by Crocheters, Knitters,
and Crafters to get a jump start 
on their Christmas presents.

That's my story and I am sticking to it.

"yes, The video started out side ways, But I got it fixed".
