Yesterday evening Spanish Trails Village in Zephyrhills, Florida held its annual golf cart parade. Many of the residents decorated their carts with flashing lights, tinsel, ornaments and even music to help usher in the holiday season. My mom and her little dog Daisy in her festive red coat rode along on a tour of all the streets. The people who did not have carts sat out to watch the parade go by. And those of us in the carts got to drive by all of the homes, many of which were elaborately decorated with lights.
After the parade, everyone retired to the clubhouse for hot chocolate and cookies. Even though there were a few drops of rain, when you are away from family and weather that is traditionally what we think of as Christmas weather, these activities mean a lot to our residents. On Christmas Day we will gather in the clubhouse for a dinner with everyone contributing something to share. Not a bad way to celebrate the holidays in the Sunshine State!
