It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Greetings from Beautiful Delray Beach Florida!

We won’t be having a “White Christmas” this year like many of you readers up north. Being a native New Englander, I do know that magical wondrous feeling of those first snowflakes.

While a ‘White Christmas’ gets a great deal of airtime right now, let me tell you that Christmas here in the Sunshine State is pretty festive and colorful.

Our beautiful 100 ft Christmas Tree in Downtown Delray! IMO it’s just magnificent! Businesses along  Atlantic Avenue are also looking festive!

Further up the coast it certainly feels like Christmas in Palm Beach.

During the holiday season, evening tours of Whitehall, are offered with caroling in the Flagler Kenan Pavillion.  Unlike the mansions in Newport RI, Whitehall was always decorated for Christmas by The Flaglers. It was their favorite time of year.

In West Palm Beach, The Kravis Center is decorated for the season and is offering holiday programs. The Poinsettia Tree lights up Okeechobee Blvd.

There is one very special tree on display this year I would like to share with you. It doesn’t get crowds but it seems to attract a couple of Scottish Folds!  It was actually made for me in Vermont!

It reminds me of Christmas many years ago and I am happy to have it in my Christmas present and future.

I will close today with a mention of a few friends going through challenging times right now. I am sending them prayers for recovery and resilience.

Today is Friday, December 22, 2017.

  1. Delray and environs look spectacular. My favorite for a smaller space is your Vermont made tree. We could have used something like that this year. Too much going on to buy our usual tree at Darts.
    Happy Holidays my Florida friend!
