Christmas in Daytona is not snowy, and is highly unlikely to ever be snowy. Our white sand is a substitute for snow, and that’s what we have.
Anyway, this doesn’t affect our Holiday spirit. Not a bit. The feel of the Holiday is in the air, which is 81F. It is in the waters of the Atlantic, which are much cooler now at 67F, freezing cold for the locals, but wonderful for vacationers, who do not know that it is cold and enjoy the extended vacation season this year.
We went for a walk on the beach earlier than we usually do. Usually we walk later in the day. No because we like to walk when it is dark, it is simply difficult to do when the days are short, but the workload is the same, and you don't even notice that it is getting late, and you walk half of the way in the fading light, and then come back in the darkness.
There were plenty of people on the beach on Christmas day. Swimming, sun-tanning, walking, fishing, playing… enjoying the warm day. And on our way we met Santa. There was a line of people, who wanted to take pictures with Santa, so we did the same thing. And here is this photo.
