Merry Christmas...In July!!

Posted by Ann Eckhart | E-Mail The Author

No one is sure how or why "Christmas In July" celebrations came about. Some speculate that an Irish group who enjoyed the winter snow in Sydney, Australia's Blue Mountains during the summer decided to throw a party....and who can resist a good party?!

Whatever the origin, now millions of people worldwide like to have a festive holiday celebration in the hot and humid month of July....and retailers are using this as a way to draw in customers during a normally slow sales period. July is the perfect time to hit the clearance racks or start shopping for the actual Christmas holiday. This is especially true if you shop online (and we hope you are shopping on eBay!); buying now ensures your packages will arrive in plenty of time, and you can avoid the rush of crowds at the stores in November and December.

To celebrate "Christmas In July", Annabella's Gift Shop is giving away one FREE premium Christmas gift bag (value $1.99-$2.99) with every item purchased now through July 31, 2006. Win one auction, get one bag; buy two store items, get two bags; win two auctions and buy one store item, get three bags...there is no limit and no special code to enter as the bag(s) will automatically be added to your order! However, this offer is only available while supplies last, so shop early. In the meantime, have a very Merry July!!
