Christmas in July

It’s that whacky, fun, and festive time of year again!

It’s the time for seashell evergreen replicas, decorated cacti, and lawn flamingos donning Santa hats. It’s the time of year where if you didn’t quite get enough of your Christmas spirit out during the winter it’s still somewhat socially acceptable to express your love for the Holiday season (even though you may still get some weird looks).

Don’t let people who say, “It’s too early for Christmas,” get you down! It’s never too early for hot cocoa, and sugar cookies are never a bad idea! Warm Beach Camp and Conference Center (home of The Lights of Christmas) will jump at any excuse to be a little more festive than normal. It’s Christmas in July people! Let’s break out the sparkling cider and open some presents!

The Lights of Christmas has something extra special to giveaway this pseudo-holiday season! Check out The Lights of Christmas on Facebook to enter in a giveway for a chance to win $100 off an overnight stay at the event! Second place will receive three vouchers for the famous hot-fresh mini donuts!

Who says it’s too early for Christmas!? Who says it’s too early to start writing letters to Santa and hanging Christmas lights!? Not Warm Beach, that’s for sure! It’s Christmas time all year-round here!

From light hanging, to event planning, to designing new displays, staff members here are always thinking about Christmas and how to provide you with the best Christmas festival experience possible. Opening night is earlier this year too! Hope to see you on November 29, the day after Thanksgiving, for the first night of the festival!

Christmas in July isn’t an officially recognized holiday, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be celebrated!
