Yours *TrulyJuly*

I do everything content.

 

I love the idea to move Christmas to winter on the southern hemisphere like it’s supposed to:

The pagan origin of Christmas was celebrating the winter solstice.

This is now becoming a thing with concepts such as Christmas in July.

Just as well, because any celebration to emerge out of hibernation for is worth it.

 

However: Christmas in July is not the correct half year mark. That would be June, as in the 6th month of the year.

I encounter this mistake often, as shown in the screenshot:

From Christmas in July to Christmas in December is 5 months.

From Christmas in July to Christmas in December is 5 months.

 

You can count it on one hand: Because July is the 7th month of the year, it takes 5 months to December.

So the correct date to celebrate Christmas in winter on the southern hemisphere would be in June.

 

But since it doesn’t match the winter solstice in any case, I think we can simply celebrate both:

21st June: Winter Solstice

25th July: Christmas in July

 

When it comes to winter, I say to any added festivity: The more the merrier!
Let’s bring light and warmth into the cold months of the year.
