In Australia Christmas falls in the hot summer months. So many people like to experience the traditional Christmas food in winter – also known as Yulefest.

In the southern hemisphere, winter falls in July. Therefore in countries such as Australia, New Zealand and South Africa in order to have Christmas with a winter feel, Christmas in July events are undertaken. However Christmas in December, the usual month, is a far more common practice, despite it being summer.

Christmas in July is a great excuse to cook up a mid-winter feast for family and friends where you can enjoy winter produce in a Christmas atmosphere.

Here are some Christmas in July recipe ideas.
