Christmas in July 2018 day 1 / Noël en juillet 2018 jour 1

CIJ day 1 / jour 1

What does it mean to have the Holiday Spirit?

The first thing that comes to my mind to represent this is this quote “I wish I could put some of the Christmas spirit in jars and open a jar of it every month “ by Harlan Miller

To me, the Christmas Spirit is a feeling – a feeling of warmth, love, coziness, peacefulness, generosity, joyfulness and kindness.

How to attain the Christmas spirit:
·        Giving heart-felt gifts
·         Soft Christmas lights, music, candles
·         Christmas music
·         Taking time to reflect on the meaning of Christmas


  1. The Christmas spirit is an open heart for others to enjoy. Thanks for your CIJ posting.

  2. I think you got it absolutely correct - it's a feeling and you've summed it up beautifully - warmth, love, coziness, peacefulness, generosity, joyfulness, and kindness. Giving not receiving, bringing joy to others, a softness to the season rather than all the glitz and excess that we often see. A time for family and friends and togetherness.

  3. Beautiful, Lucie! Love your suggestions for attaining the Christmas spirit.

  4. Great post to start off Christmas in July!

  5. Christmas spirit all year long would be nice.
