Weather wise we never know what we are going to get for Christmas – it could be 50 degrees or 80 degrees on Christmas morning. But the nice thing is that we usually get a few cool days leading up to Christmas that helps us all get into the mood, remembering Christmas’s from when we were kids with snow and ice. We Floridians love our warm weather, obviously that’s why most of us moved here. But most of us will agree that it’s a welcome change around the holidays to get some cooler weather. Waking up to 40 degrees this morning was hard but by noon it should get into the 70s.
I remember my first Christmas in Florida. I went to the beach. Why? Because I thought it was a novel idea. I remember laying in the warm sun and beaming inside. I HATE the cold, I moved here for two reasons: a new life and a warm climate. And, lying on that beach on December 25th made me feel like I had really achieved them. That was almost 30 years ago and I have to admit I have never gone to the beach again on Christmas day but I still feel the same as I did all those years ago. I love living in Florida. I love the warm weather; I love the warm water in the Tampa Bay and everything Florida has become for me.
