An Old Fashioned Florida Christmas


One day a year, mid-December, it snows on Main Street in Dunedin, FL.  It’s not real snow, but the spirit of Christmas always shows up at Dunedin’s Old Fashioned Christmas.  There are decorated lamp posts, photographs with Santa, s’mores, Christmas trees, and Christmas tunes played by a live band (this year it was Late Night Brass of Tampa Bay).  And in Florida, you can enjoy all of these things outdoors in December while wearing shorts and eating ice cream.
