Christmas in August | Stocking Fillers

Christmas in August, what's all that about?

Stocking Fillers is calling on you, humble lovers of Christmas, to help support our latest campaign to bring Christmas in August to UK shores.

A summertime yuletide is widely celebrated in the southern hemisphere, so why can't we? It’s far too long to wait before the season of goodwill is upon us and, as the country with the lowest number of bank holidays in Europe, we think we deserve an extra treat, don't you?

We’ve got loads going on in honour of August 25th too, so get involved today!

Eat, drink and be merry!

From turkey burgers to cranberry cocktails, our hand-picked selection of bloggers have put together their summer-inspired Christmas recipes. Each day, we’ll unlock a new window in our advent calendar to reveal a new recipe.

The great gift giveaway

What would Christmas in August be without presents? To truly get into the spirit of things, we’re launching our 12-day gift giveaway.

From August 13th-24th, we’re giving away a bundle of great prizes each day to one of our lucky social media followers.

To be in with a chance of winning, simply share or retweet our daily giveaway posts on Facebook or Twitter. Make sure you like and follow us too!

One winner from all entrants will be selected at random each day — good luck!
