Christmas In July - Good Tidings of Comfort And Joy

Who's up for some holiday cheer? I mean with this crazy year we've been having, we could all use some good tidings of comfort and joy, am I right? Christmas seems a long way away and if you're like me and live in a cold climate, the thought of anything related to snow during the month of July is somewhat nauseating. HOWEVER, it's never too early to get a jump start on some inspiring ideas for the holidays, am I right again? Especially if you plan your gift-giving ahead and DIY your holiday decor.

Even the biggest anti-Christmas In July critic should find some inspiration with these thirty-plus festive Christmas in July ideas from the four week Holiday Ideas Blog Hop event.
