Ways to Remind Yourself of Christmas in July
I love Christmas. Anticipation for the holiday brightens up the cold dark winter months and then can be held like a small warm light through March/ Maybe April (In Chicago, winters last a long time). Having a little reminder in Summer isn’t a bad thing either
1. Start planning for presents (Knitting or looking for gifts)
2. Plan your decorations
There is an advent knitting project you can buy yarn for
3. Knit last year’s Box of Light
Every Christmas season, a local yarn shop sells an advent calendar box where you can go through the months opening up small skeins of yarn, soap, knitting accessories or stitch markers and a project (usually a cowl) that can be worked on during the winter. I tend to lag on my knitting projects - so I’m working on last year’s box of light right now.
