Have you ever wondered why some folks celebrate Christmas in July? According to a Google search, the tradition came about because for those who live in the southern hemisphere, Christmas is celebrated in their summer season. The month of July is actually the peak month in winter for these residents. That’s the reasoning behind it all. Interesting, isn’t it?
I suppose for those of us who can’t wait for Christmas to arrive, this unofficial holiday is a good thing. Doubly so for those of us who love reading Christmas books all year round.
I never was much of a Christmas in July person until more recently. A big part of this change was due to the Heroes of Freedom Ridge series, a multi-author venture I’m blessed to be a part of. We started this series last year with 6 heartwarming Christmas books set in the fictional town of Freedom, Colorado. We’re so excited to share that we have 6 new books set to release this fall and winter!
In the meantime, we’re throwing a grand ole Christmas in July party on Facebook all month long. We’re doing cover reveals, games, and giveaways, and also having guest author takeovers. We might be halfway through the month already, but there’s still plenty of time to join in on the fun! I invite you to check out the Freedom Ridge Readers Group HERE! You’ll also get to hang out with fellow InspyRomance authors Mandi Blake, Tara Grace Ericson, and Hannah Jo Abbott there!
