Christmas in July

The origins of Christmas in July are not clear, however, it is generally believed that the practice started with a group of Irish tourists visiting the New South Wales Blue Mountains in July of 1980. As snow fell outside, it is alleged that the group managed to convince a local hotel owner to hold a party called ‘Yulefest.’

It was enjoyed so much that the group returned each year with more and more people and so Christmas in July was born. More here
