Have you ever done Christmas in the summer?

My husbands family can not get together in the winter, so someone suggested to do it at the beach in the summer. Any one done this? I don't think I will be that into it.

  • No way I could get into that. It wouldn't be Christmas so don't call it that. It would be a beach family summer reunion. With gifts I assume.

  • On DH's dad's side of the family, we did a Christmas party with Bingo a few days after Christmas every year. The only gifts we exchange are the ones we win playing Bingo. There are too many ppl to buy for everyone, so I guess they have done it this way for years now. Well, last Christmas, there were 3 families that couldn't come, and then one of DH's cousin's DH was going to Iraq at the beginning of Summer and she was coming home while he was gone, so we decided to wait til everyone could be there, so we did "Christmas in June" and it was alot more fun. We did the traditional stuff we always do, but at a park instead of his Grandma's house, and we all went swimming afterwards. We had such a blast, we have decided to do this every year. Also, do you realize that in Australia, Christmas is in the summer?

  • Not in the summer. I remember celebrating it about two weeks earlier than normal because my step-dad was deploying just before Christmas.
