How Did Christmas In July Start & How Is It Celebrated In Australia?

Christmas in July is all about fun of course! It's a time to slow down, invite family and friends over, spend quality time together, indulge in gourmet goodness and delicious wine. July is known for being the coldest month of the year in Australia, and it's the perfect time to snuggle in with loved ones and imagine what Christmas in the Northern Hemisphere is like! This mid-year festive tradition is the perfect time for gifting loved one's something special or simply gifting time, to catch up and enjoy each other's company.

The origin stories of Christmas in July across the world are varied and there's no one story that has true claim to the tradition, but it's interesting to research where Christmas in July began, with theories such as an 1839 French opera, a girl's camp in the United States in the 1930's and even the Hollywood movie, 'Christmas in July' in the 1940's. If there's one thing for sure, it's that right across the world, people love the joy and celebration of Xmas so much that they love celebrating it twice, and we can't blame them!

When it comes to understanding how Christmas in July started in Australia, there's a fun theory that we absolutely love. The story goes that in July 1980 a group of Irish holidaymakers were staying in the Blue Mountains when snow began to fall. The soft snowfall outside led to sentimental reminiscing of the joy of a winter Christmas back home. The owner of the motel happened to have grown up listening to joyful stories of Christmas that his Irish father would recall and so he cooked up a feast for the senses including turkey and ham, and the tradition of Yuletide or Yulefest was born and is still celebrated in the Blue Mountains and Australia-wide to this day.

When choosing a Christmas gift hamper for your recipient, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed. Of course, our role here at The Hamper Emporium is to ensure that Christmas gift shopping overwhelm is a thing of the past for our customers.

Because we've done the hard work for you, and created Xmas gifts that are guaranteed to impress, while we know, no matter what hamper you choose to have delivered across Australia, that your recipient may have some favourite goodies they'd simply adore to be included. If you're looking for a gift for wine lovers, then we've created a range of Australia's best wine hamper. We've got options for red wine and white wine, or if you're not sure which they prefer, we've got gift boxes that include both! Savoury delights abound in a massive range of our hampers, but we've got the sweetest of sweet gifts too, if you're having trouble choosing or not quite sure what your gift recipient will prefer, then choose a Christmas gift option that is packed full of both sweet and savoury, and you'll be guaranteed to impress.
