Rudolph Day for July

 Yes, today is July 25 -- Rudolph Day for July!  For today, I thought I would share a quote.  This idea comes from Jennifer Acuff and was quoted in the "Country Woman Almanac" pages in the June/July 2009 issue of Country Woman magazine.  Here it is:

"Our family beats the summer heat by celebrating Christmas in July.  We stay inside all day watching our favorite holiday movies, making stocking stuffers, decking the halls and eating a Christmas dinner.  The festivities end with reading the Nativity story and munching homemade cookies."
-- Jennifer Acuff, Monterey, TN

Isn't that a neat idea?

My own Rudolph Day is going to include some errands and busyness, but I also hope to take some time to look over my Christmas notebook and do some planning and tweaking of my Christmas lists, simplifying them a bit.  Maybe I'll do a little online shopping for some necessary materials for handmade gifts.  We will see!


  1. HELLO!!!!

    Happy Rudolph Day to you!! I have been so busy lately that I have , unfortunately , not kept up with my Christmas Blog but hope to start to post on it more often......
    Hope all is well with you!!


  2. Rudolph Day greetings to you, Debbie!

    I hear you about being busy!!! My life has gotten very busy this summer with added care for my elderly dad. The only way I managed Christmas in July this year was to keep the posts very simple and to schedule them all ahead of time. Otherwise I could never have done it.

    Sadly, I've been too busy to read others' Christmas blogs very much ... but hopefully I can catch up before long!

    God bless,
    Mrs. T
