Ready for a mental escape from the summertime heat? It's time to celebrate Christmas in July!

While only the most zealous shoppers have started preparing for the 2012 holiday season, Christmas in July provides the rest of us with a simple excuse to celebrate, without the typical pricey strings attached.

So, today, go ahead & let out your fanatical holiday spirit for just 1 day. Play your Christmas Pandora station; sing along to Mariah Carey's “All I Want For Christmas” at the top of your lungs; watch your favorite holiday movie; or celebrate with one of the fun events below.

– Enter the Byers Choice “A Christmas Carol” Facebook Contest.  Byers Choice will be randomly picking one winner from our Facebook page to win the complete 12-piece signed set of “A Christmas Carol.” To Enter, like them on Facebook and wish Charles Dickens a “Happy Birthday” on their wall. Contest ends Sept. 20, 2012. Winner will be announced on Facebook by Oct. 1, 2012. Good luck!

– Run or watch The Christmas in July Mary Kate Legacy 5K run at The Green Parrot. Find more information here.

– Visit a winter wonderland from Habitat for Humanity of Bucks County at 31 Oak Ave., Chalfont, PA. They're featuring beautiful Christmas decorations at very low prices and some are even on sale. All proceeds help us to build homes in Bucks County. Find more information here.

– Jump in the car and head to the Christmas Past Village in New Hope, where you will feel like you've skipped ahead 5 months into December…that is, until you open the front door and feel the 90 degree heat!

And if that just doesn't fill your holiday cravings, get an extra dose with a look back at the Holidays on Bucks Happening in 2011:
