Christmas in June, July, August, and September – Really?
Traditionally Christmas is celebrated in the winter months, December 25th. In July, the heat of the summer in the Northern Hemisphere is staggering, and some people throw parties during the heat that mimic Christmas. Ice cream, cold foods, and gifts bring joy to many people. Movie channels may run blocks of Christmas stories typically played in December. Christmas in July brings sales, 24-hour shopping blocks, and other events.
There is also Christmas in June. In Western countries, June has a limited number of holidays to promote sales and merchandise. Before the back-to-school excitement, things were relatively neutral in June, July, and August. The idea is there is no need to wait to celebrate love, friendship, and peace.
Christmas in July started in Italy and Europe. It is a yearly tradition that is now spreading worldwide.
Yellowstone National Park celebrates Christmas in August. Employees were known to participate in large employee parties in July/August with skits, dances, floats, and good food. Some say that the festivities were a way to incorporate the performance of Handel’s Messiah by a student ministry working in the park.

Whether you celebrate Christmas in June, July, August, or December, planning for gift giving and exchanges takes time and money. Some pawn shops like Parker Pawn and Jewelry offer layaway programs.
The layaway programs allow you to shop early and find the perfect gifts of gold, silver, jewelry, diamonds, designer handbags, luxury watches, tools, and electronics at the right price before the crowds of people pick over the available selection.
Finding an item on a prime deal is a great time to purchase. A layaway program offers you the opportunity to deposit the sale price items you chose and then make regular installment payments until the items are paid off. The store holds the merchandise in reserve.
You pick out the items; you place a down payment; you pay regularly until paid in full and pick up your items. It is simple and easy.
There is no credit check to establish layaway, and you can pick the amount you can afford so you make payments on time. Typically there is a convenience fee or maybe a cancellation fee associated with your layaway program. The cancellation fee is a restocking fee if you can’t make all the payments by the due date.
The small payments associated with a layaway program make it easy to pay and not miss a payment.
