How Christmas in July Started?
The National Recreation Association's journal Recreation published in 1935 described Christmas in July celebration in girl's summer camp in Brevard, North Carolina with events hold on July 24 and July 25. That phrase is not popular until the release of Hollywood movie Christmas in July in 1940 talked about a man thought won prize $25K and bought presents for family, friends and finally proposed to his loved one.
In 1944, during World War II, the US Post office and U.S. Army and Navy officials work with advertising and greeting card industries to threw a luncheon called Christmas in July to promote early Christmas mailing campaign for men service overseas and they did luncheon again in 1945.
By 1950, American advertisers starts using Christmas in July themes for summertime sales and many retail stores learned to threw Christmas in July sales events around July in order to promote Christmas products just in stocked and create an holiday like atmosphere while most people having party and outdoor activities in summer instead of shopping in stores.

What changed this year's Christmas in July?
I am not sure how many people do thinking of preparing Christmas gifts for family, friends and loved one under hot, long sunny days. We usually go swimming, hiking, running or do other outdoor activities like having BBQ party at park, beach or someone else's backyard.
But, with threat of invisible virus, our life in year 2020 becomes so much different now. We shall not hold party with best friends or cheering with our lovely relatives.

That feeling is about sharing our Passion and Love to our loved ones.
