Christmas in July is a fun Christmas celebration in July that originated from the circumstance that in the southern hemisphere, Christmas is actually celebrated in the summer.  

So for the residents from that area, they began to have Christmas celebration in July so they could enjoy the holiday in the peak of their winter season.

So here in the United States, we began to embrace the concept.  Americans began capitalizing on the profits with sales and promotions. And then there is the early count down, six months, which has us all looking forward to all the Christmas fun.  

Hallmark definitely plays a big part in all the anticipation with all the Christmas movies playing on their channels.

I bought a large can of crushed pineapple by mistake for another recipe last week, but no worries. I knew just what I wanted to use it for, Pineapple Pudding.  Also, the grandsons were coming over with their friends, and I knew there would be plenty for everyone.

But in this case, I had a few packages of  Pepperidge Farm Chessmen Butter Cookies leftover from Christmas that I thought would be fun to use for Christmas in July.

I grew up with my Mother cooking the custard pudding on top of the stop.  Stirring and watching to make sure not to cook the custard to fast and continuously stirring, so it does not scorch on the bottom.

I still occasionally cook my custard pudding on top of the stove, but my favorite way to cook custard pudding today is in the microwave.

Place all the ingredients in a large batter bowl and whisk really good.  Cook the pudding for 2 minutes and whisk again.  It usually takes 6-8 minutes at 2-minute intervals whisking in between to smooth out the lumps.

When the custard pudding is thickened enough, add the crushed pineapple, butter, and vanilla, so easy and quick to make.
