Oh, what fun it is to celebrate Christmas six months early! Although an unofficial holiday, Christmas in July is the perfect excuse for a celebration and a little holiday cheer. There’s no denying that summer is wonderful, but at times it can feel suffocating. It seems like you’re constantly sweating and enveloped in humidity. Traveling to somewhere covered in snow (real or fake) can allow you to feel re-energized.

However, there are so many events going on, it can be hard to decide where to spend your time. Treetopia has created a map of the top ten places to celebrate this impromptu holiday. From Alaska to New York, there is sure to be an event that fits your preferences.


Phoenix Zoo ships in over 41 tons of snow every year- talk about an escape from the heat. On top of that, over 300 Christmas trees are put on sale at the world’s largest Christmas store in Frankenmuth. The Bishop Arts District in Texas also has a 100 percent chance of snow in July. The event also includes carols with live bands.

No matter your budget and no matter your age, Christmas in July can be the perfect holiday for you. After all, what is left to celebrate after the Fourth of July is over? Grab your family, or grab some friends and get in the holiday spirit.
