Most of us celebrate Christmas in December. 

If Christmas is ever any other time of year, it’s usually Christmas in July, a retailers gimmick to clear out summer inventory before Back To School. In 2015, the City of West Hollywood celebrated Christmas in July with pole banners and holiday treats. 

But on September 19th, The Abbey is hosting it’s 12th annual Christmas in September party. Why is that?

The Abbey explains it on Instagram…

12 years ago, David Cooley (Founder & CEO of The Abbey), started a conversation with a guest sitting at the bar. He worked for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and explained they were in need of toys. By September, the toy inventory is at its lowest point and the hospital would run out of toys until Christmas when people would donate again. David offered to give CHLA a Christmas in September and host a toy-drive at The Abbey.

Now in its 12th year, Christmas in September is a West Hollywood tradition that has provided tens of thousands of toys for children and families in need. Please join David, The Abbey Family and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles on September 19th and bring a toy for a teen or infant. If you can’t attend the event, just drop off a toy at The Abbey. Together we can bring joy and happiness to these amazing children. 

So get ready to celebrate Christmas in September on Tuesday the 19th and bring a toy for a teen or infant!

(We’re pretty sure you should leave any infants at home and bring toys for infants)
