Embracing Christmas in July: A Festive Tradition Down Under

The month of July is associated with summertime, outdoor activities, and vacations in many parts of the world, however in Australia, there is a unique and growing trend of celebrating Christmas in July. While December is traditionally associated with Christmas festivities, Australians have embraced the idea of a mid-year celebration, bringing joy and merriment to the winter months.


In this blog post, we’ll explore why Australians celebrate Christmas in July and the reasons behind its increasing popularity.

One of the main reasons Australians celebrate Christmas in July is to bring a touch of winter cheer during the colder months. Unlike the rest of the world, where Christmas falls during winter, Australia experiences its summer season in December. Celebrating Christmas in July allows Australians to experience the joy of a winter wonderland, complete with festive decorations, warm food, and cosy gatherings.

At The Lighthouse Restaurant we are embracing the traditions and nostalgia associated with a traditional Christmas. Indulge in a banquet menu specially designed by our Head Chef, as well as your choice of Homemade Eggnog or Mulled wine on arrival.

The Lighthouse Restaurant will be decked out with holiday decor, twinkling lights, & a Christmas tree to create a cosy, magical atmosphere. You’ll feel like you’re in a winter wonderland, even though you’re Down Under.

So come and celebrate Christmas in July with us at The Lighthouse Restaurant! It’s the perfect way to embrace the holiday season and create some wonderful memories with your loved ones along the bay overlooking Moreton and surrounding islands.
