Christmas in July


“Christmas in July” means an unexpected surprise has come our way.  Few people know how this term started — and it has nothing to do with the onslaught of holiday decorations now adorning the shelves of stores! Observing Christmas in July has roots in the Victorian Age, a time when families made most, if not all, their Christmas presents. Summer was, and is, the ideal time to get cracking on the holiday, especially if you embrace the DIY  mentality.  The Victorians would dry flowers for dried-flower bouquets and potpourris.  Excursions to the beach would allow the construction of seashell frames and decorated flowerpots.  Spiced tea bags, 9-bean-soup mixes, jams, jellies, and preserves were all packed up and set aside for Christmas gift giving.

Perhaps Christmas in July knitting and bottling of preserves is not in your plans, but if you are thinking of a Hawaiian Christmas (and more posts will follow on what to do here on island during the holidays) or winter vacation, you may wish to book your hotel, plane, and rental cars now (as posted earlier, Kaua’i is a small island with limited rental cars).  Our Kauai vacation rental condos have some openings for December.  Why not stay with us?  We would love to wish you Mele Kalikimaka!  Our units are featured at www.hulanow.com or  1 855 HULA NOW

Aloha!
