christmas in july




I listen to Christmas carols year round. It's my dirty secret. Bing Crosby, Mariah Carey - I love them all. So you can imagine my sheer delight at discovering the Australian tradition of Christmas in July, when the weather is cold and perfect. It was my chance to eat, drink, dress like an elf and listen to Christmas carols in a socially acceptable environment - what could be better?  

So this past weekend we gathered for a a true feast worthy of Christmas complete with a gathering of friends, roaring fire, spiced wine and turducken. Now, if you've never experienced turducken (it was my first time) you're missing out. Essentially its a chicken stuffed within a duck, stuffed within a turkey and it's delicious. The weather was perfect, food was amazing, atmosphere festive and thankfully I was allowed to listen to my carol playlist on repeat for most of the night...a Christmas wish come true.

Yay, I think I will join that next July.
For me Christmas has to happen in winter.
