    Christmas in July, Open Media ATCs – Due July 21, 2022

    ATC Swap Due Date: July 21, 2022

    It’s getting close to that time of year… Christmas in July! Let’s come together to create ATC’s that blend our favorite Christmas characters/activities with a 4th of July summer celebration. Show off your love for Christmas and pride for red, white & blue.

    Possible ideas:
    Mrs. Clause sporting her favorite red and blue holiday swimsuit, while serving pina coladas with a side of cookies.

    Two Christmas deer on a beach playing a game of volleyball with fireworks in the background.

    Santa grilling up hotdogs while wearing his traditional hat, and red, white & blue swim trunks.

    Elves having the best summer day with sparklers.

    Gingerbread people camping under the summer stars.

    Christmas tree with patriotic flags as dιcor.

    Get creative! Simply merge the two holidays together.

    The inspiration for this swap comes from my mother. We used to begin creating Christmas crafts in July for fall/winter bazaars, and to give as holiday gifts to family & friends. This gave us a good 4 – 5 months to create and not feel rushed as we approached the holidays. Now she is no longer with us, but I try to carry on this tradition with my niece, sister and husband.
