Usually in North America Christmas is centered around scenes of snow and sitting around the fire. But what if you happen to be spending Christmas in say, Tasmania, or the Everglades, how might you celebrate there? Yesterday evening I was to find out. In the Everglades, as well as other parts of South Florida, a balmy Christmas of 78F comes with a boat parade. Boats duly decorated with Christmas lights met at the mouth of the Barren River and moved along the river into Everglades City where people gathered on the docks to watch the parade drift by. Here are just a couple images of the parade and a few of the individual boats. Wherever this may find you, may your Christmas be bright, even if not snowy and white.
What unique celebrations do you find where you live?
