Hello everyone, thank you for stopping by for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. You all know that I am always thankful to each of you for joining us! Each and every Thursday we share the things for which we are most thankful and we always enjoy reading all of the things you are thankful for too. If you are new to our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop, thanks for hopping in, we really do get excited when new blogger pals join us!
Today I’m thankful for Christmas in July, yes, it’s really a thing and I’m thankful for it. We always celebrate Christmas in July here, although I can’t figure out why we didn’t put our tree up. Oh, wait a minute, our tree went to live at the county landfill, that’s why we didn’t put our tree up.
The Mom has been busy singing Christmas Carols and best of all in the evenings the Mom and Dad have been watching Christmas movies. I’m not gonna plug any particular channel, but you can probably guess which channel had that Christmas movies on. I, for the most part, enjoyed snuggling on the couch with the Mom while the Christmas movies were playing.
As you know, I was born on a Christmas Tree Farm not too far from here and I was adopted and came home just three days before Christmas, so I’m always ready to celebrate Christmas. An besides, look at my pillow, we could all sure use a little more joy in the world about now.
What about you, what are you thankful for today? Tell us in the comments and then join us for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!
We listen to Christmas music at work all through the year, it is so festive. Enjoy your Christmas in July!
We remember your awesome gptcha tale, Brian, and ow you were born on a Christmas tree farm. 🙂 Happy Christmas in July!
good grief Brian- can you delete all but one of my links- I do not know how this happened….sorry!
Great post Brian- Christmas and Joy to the World can be every day!
we love your christmas in july… and maybe we will watch da grinch today?
My human’s birthday is in July, and she says that is Christmas enough for her – to have it in July would mean she would have to deal with the same thing as those people born around the third week in December, with the combination birthday and Christmas gifts! MOL – so no Christmas in July for her. She wants TWO separate presents.
Love Christmas and nothing like celebrating it through the year. Wise decision indeed, Brian.
I’m going to listen to some Xmas music now with my 12 year old who is an X’mas fan too.
Joy to your family.
Love and gratitude for this blog hop.
Pawkisses to your fur balls.
Just thinking about Christmas makes it feel less HOT here! Thanks for hosting this Hop Brian – it’s good for us to think about our thankfuls!
I had no idea where you are Christmas cat and what a great idea to celebrate but the Christmas cat Christmas in July Joy day of the year and every day of the year
Granny sings Silent Night throughout the year, Brian, so we think Christmas in July is very appropriate…MOL..Pawkisses for a wonderful X-mas to all of you🐾😽💞
We could definitely use something joyful now.
Love your pillow! We don’t do Christmas in July, but you go ahead an have fun with it!
Your story was very deeply felt by my mom.
What a lovely tradition!
Tama and Genji
I love to celebrate Christmas in July. Thanks for hosting. Have a wonderful day! XO
You were adopted from a Christmas Tree Farm? I didn’t know that – well then, Merry Christmas and 1/2 year (almost) Gotcha Day Brian!
Brian, we hope that there will be a new Christmas Tree this year; I know you all enjoy having one, and don’t like when it is stored away again.
Here in Michigan, Winter lasts much too long for my taste, so every minute that we are away from it, is a good one!
We love the idea of Christmas in July. Mom is watching those movies too!!

Brian is worth celebrating any day of the year – enjoy your half birthday in July.
Catmas in July = EPIC!!! Catmas anytime of the year is pawesome! Happy Purrsday guys! XOX
The best thing would be to get pressies this time of year too!
I didn’t know you were a Christmas kitty, Brian. I do now. We love Christmas too and I’m all for celebrating in July. I think I’ll turn on some Christmas music today while we do our chores.
Thank you for hosting the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

What a lovely tradition. Definitely something to bring cheer especially in these times.
Oh thank goodness someone else is watching Christmas movies…I am thoroughly enjoying the snow on the tveeeees. my Bryan was watching an old ice hockey game recently very refreshing.
I didn’t realize you were born at a Christmas tree farm. That is awesome and I’m wondering why your name isn’t Kris, or Mistletoe, or Cocoa….or maybe, Buddy (Elf)! It’s good to always carry Christmas in our hearts all year. And, yes, we all need more joy in our lives. Celebrating in July is a great way to remind ourselves of that. Now, excuse me because I need to get started shopping………X
That sounds fun, Happy Christmas in July ! Purrs
Enjoy your Christmas in July celebration. All the fun and none of the shopping crazies.
Enjoy Christmas in July! I always start thinking about getting ready for Christmas this time of year . . . if we actually had a porch we’d probably keep a string of Christmas lights up year-round.
Oh my goodness I always love CHRISTmas music. I keep lots of tunes in my playlist. A favorite blog with favorite photos you share. Thank you HUGS across the miles
Happy Christmas in July Brian!!!
WE are celebrating(thankful) having mum home this week for holiday 🙂

Christmas in July sounds like fun! Like your “Joy to the world” pillow.
Have a wonderful Thankful Thursday!
My wife loves this because she gets to watch Christmas movies on the Hallmark channel again. Oh, boy!
Christmas in July sounds so cool! I might do that next year too.
That sounds like fun to have Christmas in July.
We are all for the joy of Christmas in July too, Brian – actually, why can’t we have that joy every day of the year???
Merry Christmas in July.

There’s sure nothing wrong with having some of that Christmas joy in July, especially if it means more togetherness time!
What a wonderful idea!! I think, especially this year, everyone should celebrate Christmas in July!! Enjoy your Mama snuggles!
Christmas in July is the only tolerable part of summer, IMO!
I watch those movies with Pop too! We put the Christmas lights on in the kitchen too. What would make you even happier would be if that pillow was filled with NIP!
Christmas in July makes our mommy not so sad. She’s not good in the hot so in the Summer she can’t do anything and right now it’s even more at home. So we are big big lovers of Christmas in July. We love your photo Brian
Thank you for sharing your sweet Christmas story with us! Did you know that Magellan was a Christmas gift to Mom? Of course, he would be happy to celebrate Christmas in July. Every day is Christmas as far as he is concerned! Happy Thankful Thursday, thanks for hosting!
It must be really fun around your house, Brian. Honestly, we love Christmas…but maybe not so much in July. 🙂
ha, our mom wasn’t making the connection as to why Christmas movies were showing up on “that” channel. we worry about her sometimes…
Brian, it is sort of your half birfday month. we hope y’all got some pressies…like toys, since you don’t have enough… 😉
minnie, hollie, sharpie, ditto, TL
We love Christmas! There are so many shiny, swingy things to play with. We didn’t know your Christmas story and thought it was pawsome From stray Christmas tree farm kitty to the pampured puss you are today. I love happy endings!
Purrs & Head Bonks,
That is so very cool. Merry July Christmas to you. Thanks for hosting and I hope that you have a wonderful weekend.
Christmas in July helps cool things off.
Cute cat! looks so lazy and peaceful.
Great. Sounds fun 😀
