NATIONAL LEON DAY | JUNE 25
National Leon Day marks June 25th as six months away from Christmas day. Leon is Noel spelled backward and is a day some crafters begin planning their homemade gifts and decorations. It can also be a day for those who miss the winter holidays to have a mini-winter celebration in June.
Homemade projects take planning and time. Craftspersons put effort into their designs creating customized gifts for their loved ones. These one-of-a-kind items are often appreciated for their thoughtfulness and ingenuity. The day may also serve as a reminder to get your holiday shopping started. It’s never too soon to start!
Speaking of holiday shopping, June 25th marks an ideal time for winter holiday celebrations. Summer vacation frees family to travel and visit relatives. And lack of snow makes traveling by car safer, reducing the chance of being stranded by snowstorms.
HOW TO OBSERVE NATIONAL LEON DAY
Crafters, get your hot glue guns ready! Start planning your ugly sweaters now to beat the crowds.
You can also celebrate by hosting a winter in June holiday party. Include all the trimmings such as turkey, stuffing, and cranberry sauce, too. Give your cold-loving friends something to look forward to. Use #NationalLeonDay to share on social media.
