Christmas in July seems to have entrenched itself as a tradition in itself. July in Australia is definitely the right season to be enjoying all of the traditional Christmas fare such as hot roasts and plum pudding that doesn’t seem to be appropriate for a sweltering hot Australian Summer. It can also be a nostalgic time for those who hanker after a snow filled, cool Christmas, and a reason to celebrate in the midst of colder, darker days.
The common view of the history of Christmas in July in Australia is that it was started by a group of Irish tourists who holidayed in Sydney's Blue Mountains in the Summer months of July in the 80s. Away from the Summer temperatures in their country, they were overjoyed at the sight of snow there. It is believed that they convinced a local hotel in the Blue Mountains in New South Wales to hold a party called "Yulefest". The idea was an instant hit and caught on the imagination of everyone present there.Many restaurants, clubs and dining halls create special events and a menu for Christmas in July. In the corporate world Christmas in July is always a great excuse for work teams to get together and party, and a great time to celebrate without restaurants being booked out or charging a significant premium. Fundraising also takes advantage of this quieter social season to ensure they can attract numbers to their events with the popular Christmas in July theme.
In Australian snowfields the Christmas in July traditions really come into their own – the snow being the obvious advantage!
