What Christmas Looks Like In Florida...

Who needs snowflakes when you have seashells and palm trees...

White Christmas?  You can forget all about that when you live in Florida.  Think more
like palm trees instead of Christmas trees. That is palm trees decorated as your Christmas tree. 
 May not be your typical white Christmas, but it sure has it's charm.  That's a Florida Christmas.

Every home you pass by has a palm tree on the outside and it is fully decorated.
This one is in the front of a condo building.  Beautiful always.

Here in our building we also have the palm trees decorated with lights.

A little look at how Christmas is in Florida.

Here in Florida winter for us is anything 70 degrees and colder.
People pull out their heavy sweaters, scarves, UGG boots and everything they can
 think of. The ones who want to be "cool" just hang out in flip flops and yes with socks.

No matter where you are, Christmas is magical and will always be.  Some like it
many don't, but there is no denying the spell it casts over us.  As someone said, I couldn't
give you a list of things I got as gifts when I was a child, but certain memories do stand out.
Most often they are togetherness moments, memories of fun shared and things done together.

Dear Santa, I have been very good for the last week or so.
Let's just focus on that....
