    Christmas in July will be SO HUGE this year...we have to begin announcing some of it in the month of June!

    Why? Because we have several new events planned for Christmas in July and some of them may require some prep time so that all can participate in what they want.

    Tonight we launched our Christmas in July page....and it gives you a peek at a few details:

    Guest Bloggers on My Merry Christmas
    Show Us Your Santa
    The Christmas Meme Contest

    Details on these...AND...so many events for July are coming soon.

    So keep your eye on this thread and watch for the announcements. Most will be held back for July -- but some will have to announced, linked and planned for in June.

    My parents never did put the Christmas movies back into storage after December ended last year, because they've been busy rearranging things in the house. I've got my fingers crossed that the movies will still be sitting in the TV room once July comes, and I'll have an excuse to watch them in front of the family.

    Are you witty? Sarcastic? Are you an observer of the modern condition? A commentator on our twisted world? A die-hard Christmas fanatic who sees Christmas in everything?

    This contest is for you!

    We're looking for a few good memes. Let's get our heads together and give the world 12 Christmas memes this year they won't forget.

    What's a meme, you ask? Click here to read about it and to participate. We have all month of July to knock this out!

    As part of day one of Christmas in July we kicked it all off with highlights from Tracking Santa on Christmas Eve. This great tradition is unique to My Merry Christmas and much of it comes from within our own ranks here. Can you recognize all the voices...or guess who they are?

    It is fun and funny -- and a great way to kick off the season!

    Come one, come all to the annual MMC Christmas in July E-Card Exchange (pretty much annual anyway - life happened last year and I dropped the snowball o_O) !!!!! So.....
    How it works is you PM me your email address (PM is very important as that way you aren't sharing your private details on a public forum!) On July 23rd, I shall email everybody who has signed up a list of the email addresses of the others who have signed up (with me so far?!). You then send Christmas e-cards to all on your list. Simple!!!
    All cards must be received on July 25th. There are loads of sites out there that do free e-cards so have fun in choosing.
    You know that feeling at Christmas when you find all the cards in your mailbox??? You get exactly the same feeling when you open your inbox (check your junk folder too in case you don't see the cards in your inbox)!!!!!
    It's really fun and kickstarts your Christmas creep (although if you're reading this, you really don't need a kickstart, do you?!!)

    Where do you find Christmas online? (Besides at My Merry Christmas). We're looking to know of new places, new websites, new apps, new social media channels where Christmas is celebrated. We want to connect with new folks we can interview for our features, newsletters and podcasts.

    We're all about bringing the world together for Christmas. Can you think of a better activity for Christmas in July?

    You don't have to wait until December to give. And you just might get something out of this deal as well. Be Santa in July!
