Military families celebrate Christmas in July

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Saturday, the Armed Services YMCA celebrated those that sacrifice so much by bringing some holiday cheer to San Diego.

It's called "Christmas You Missed" and local military families came out to the Murphy Canyon youth center in Tierrasanta to celebrate Christmas in July.

Deployments are never easy especially during the holidays, so Saturday's winter wonderland was a great opportunity for many families.

"It's a holiday that they love and they were saying that they wished their daddy was here on Christmas and I promised them that we would celebrate it... So this is it," Mercedes Sotomayor said.

Festivities included a holiday breakfast, cookie decorating, kids crafts and holiday photos with Santa.
