July 26. Day 207. Anyone for seconds?

You might have to be as mad as a hatter to think that everyone should be entitled to 364 unbirthday celebrations. An unbirthday then becomes an everyday occurrence and nothing special to celebrate at all. But twice a year? Well, who could argue with that? For many years, my family has joined with the families of two of my besties for a Christmas in July celebration. For many Christmas in July is an Australian's way to be able to eat "traditional" Christmas food at a time when turning on the oven to roast will cook more than your goose. I've never let the summer heat stop the baking of a turkey with all the trimmings. The way I see it, spreading a little joy of Christmas to the middle of the year can't be a bad thing even though a good many people think that Christmas in July is somewhere sacrilegious and blasphemy. But I love Christmas and a second opportunity to give presents, eat good food and relax and enjoy the company of family and friends is something to be grabbed with both hands.
