Last year's Cowboy Christmas in July blog was about the history behind this event. Since it was a very popular post I have re-posted it so falls right below this one in our blog list. Or click here.
For this year's Christmas in July blog I offer up an assortment of holiday goodies. So hold tight to the reins cause - Yee Haw - It's Cowboy Christmas again!
How about a bit of Cowboy Christmas poetry to get us started.
One of the most beloved poems, A Cowboy's Christmas Prayer by S. Omar Baker has such a simple rhythmic beauty and profound message I'm thinkin' maybe we should be readin' it all year.
Another favorite is The Busted Cowboy's Christmas by D.J O'Malley
If poetry is not exactly your thing, then you can get your holiday jolly on by turning on the Hallmark Channel. They are running a the Christmas Keepsake series -a week long showing of their Holiday movies beginning July 14th. Check out the schedule here.
How about a little music to brighten things up? Michael Martin Murphy and Suzy Boggus are sure to get your elf shoes tapping with this Holiday classic.
Let's have a look at what's been going on in the world of Christmas this week.
UPS to Add Delivery Surcharges for Black Friday, Christmas Orders - (Gee is anyone surprised at UPS adding a surcharge, on top of their usual overcharge? We all pay dearly for Amazon "free shipping". Sorry, I had to grumble.)
Well Buckettes and Buckaroos that's the news.
Happy 4th of July
Happy Trails to Christmas
