REVERSE CHRISTMAS IN JULY

 

Christmas in July is a time-honored mid-summer party favorite. In the summer’s hottest month, people pretend it’s Christmas—complete with a tree, gift exchange, and hearty meal. Well, turn the tables on this tradition with a beach-themed romp in the dead of winter. Beach balls, mojitos, everyone’s favorite Christmas with the Beach Boys album, and ample sunscreen are a must.

HOLIDAY MOVIE MARATHON

 

Because TBH you would have been searching for holiday movies on Netflix anyways, so why not have a holiday film fest? Just keep it to less than five to avoid merry movie fatigue. And if just watching hours of movies isn’t exciting enough for you or your couch guests, add some action with a drinking game. Take a shot whenever someone says “Christmas spirit” or whenever anyone in Santa garb is on screen.

MARSHMALLOW ROAST

 

Roasting marshmallows around a campfire (or a crackling fireplace) is the best. Just stock up on chocolate bars and graham crackers for s’mores…and some peppermint schnapps to wash ’em down. Spend the night getting roasted and toasted.

PET HOLIDAY PARTY

 

Because cats and dogs like nothing more than to be dressed up (as you can clearly see from how happy this cat looks), why not throw a party just for them and their adorable outfits? Imagine: a gathering with multiple puppies dressed in Santa hats. If that’s not Christmas joy, we don’t know what is. Bonus points if you can construct a makeshift photo area complete with an instant camera so that you and your friends can take holiday-themed, squee-worthy photos with fluffy. They can always use the photos for next year’s Xmas card.
