Christmas in July

What could be better than a traditional English Christmas with all the trimmings; roast turkey and pork, cold ham, hot vegetables swimming in a sea of gravy. Eating way to much at lunch. Too full to tea anything for dinner, well maybe a few leftovers...and my mums trifle....yum.

There is a growing tradition to celebrate Christmas in July in Australia when the weather is cooler, though we don't , we always have our traditional hot English Xmas Lunch in December, smack-bang in the middle of Summer.

Can't believe July is nearly over and Christmas is just around the corner...Blimey Charlie!

Do you have a special dinner or traditional lunch with all the trimmings too?
Or do you prefer the more modern approach with seafood and a good cold beer?

Hope you have a great start to the week, bye, T

@Tamarah Tamarah, I just love xmas stuff too. I don't have a huge collection, but what I do have, I really love. My fave things are the Chenille Santas and last year at Trash and Treasure I found an old goose feather tree for $10!!! Yippee
