Why Florida Is the Best Place to Spend Christmas?!

We'd happily trade snow and slush for sandy beaches.
Not everyone's ideal Christmas includes snow. Instead, many of us dream of sun, sand, and temperatures that would inspire, at most, a light sweater instead of a giant parka. For those people, there's at least one ideal place to spend Christmas: Florida. Don't believe us? Here are a few reasons why:

Palm trees look just as nice as pine trees.
And you can light them up with as many string lights as you want!

White sand is way better than snow and slush.
Yeah, freshly-fallen snow does look pretty magical ... and then you have to shovel it, or see it turn shades of gray with dirt as the days progress.

You can sculpt with it, too.
Kind of beats making a snowman.

You can take in the lights and decorations without freezing.
Need holiday cheer? Head to the nearest theme park, or one of the many beautifully lit and decorated outdoor spaces. You can linger way longer than you could up north.

There are all sorts of unique traditions, like boat parades.
This one's from a floating parade in Venice, Florida.

Wouldn't you rather have a tropical drink instead of egg nog?
It's no less festive when you think of it this way: Daiquiris and margaritas can come in the Christmas colors of green (lime) and red (strawberry, pomegranate, raspberry).

Just think of the decor possibilities of flamingoes.
Tiny hats!

Even the post offices get in on the holiday cheer.
Now this is one post office we'd love to spend time at during the holidays.

Santa doesn't seem to mind the warm weather at all.
And if he's happy, we're all happy.
