http://www.treugroup.com-Your Palm Beach County Real Estate Team shares thoughts about the Holiday Season in Florida.
Are you having a hard time getting in the Holiday Spirit? It often is hard to get in the spirit of the holidays in Florida as it doesn't feel like it did when we were kids with beach weather instead of hoping for snow. It really is a mental change to embrace the sand instead of the snow as our Holiday normal. So what do we do in South Florida to make it special. Other than not needing a coat, there are actually similarities if you look for them. Here are a few of the special ways we celebrate.
1. This Thursday we will have the lighting of the Christmas Tree in Delray Beach. Each year, the workers build this 100 foot tree at Old School Square and it is amazing. Atlantic Avenue will be full of little and big kids all excited for that moment when the tree is lit. It is something that makes me smile just thinking about it. We even have ice skating and a merry go round. Ok so it is not real ice however the kids love it just the same.
2. In downtown West Palm Beach at City Place, we can expect snow. Each year this a hi-light. There are concerts and special events there through the season.
3. Great restaurants are decorated.
4. One of my favorites are the boat parades and downtown parades.
No matter where you spend your Holiday Season, we hope that you spend it with loved ones and enjoy this time of year.
