Christmas in July first started at Keystone Camp in Brevard, NC in 1933, according to Country Living. The campers and guests gathered around a decorated stage with a Christmas Tree and carolers singing cheery Christmas songs. They even had Santa Claus and imitation snow to give it a more authentic holiday scene.
