Christmas in July

It’s 150 days until Christmas, but campers in the province of Québec, Canada, celebrate Christmas in July.  It’s called Nöel du Campeur — Camper’s Christmas.  The tradition has been around for over forty years and is celebrated in campgrounds all over Québec.

Folks decorate their campers, trailers, and campsites with trees, decorations, and lights. Père Nöel, (literally Father Christmas  — the French name for Santa Claus), visits and distributes candy.  Sometimes there is a parade of floats made by the campers.

Have you ever been camping?
