When we realized people were searching for Christmas socks in the middle of summer, we were a little confused. Then we remembered Christmas in July! It is a phrase everyone has heard, but it means something a little different to everyone. The term itself became popular in the 1940s when a movie called “Christmas in July” was released. In it, a man's friends trick him into thinking he wins a prize and a lot of money. He buys gifts for everyone he knows and proposes to his girlfriend — only to find out he wasn't really the winner after all!
These days, Christmas in July usually means throwing parties, playing Christmas movies and music, and giving gifts.
In the Southern Hemisphere where December 25th is the summertime, a July Christmas lets people celebrate during a chillier time of the year. For some of us in America, a second Christmas in the summer can be a chance to get together with family at a time when everyone can enjoy easier travel and good weather.
So if you are looking for Christmas socks this July, here are a few of our favorites! Or browse our complete Christmas socks collection and see all the fun holiday socks we have to offer.
