I’m Dreaming of a …Tropical Christmas?

While those living in northern latitudes celebrated Christmas in the cold (and in the snow, ideally), some Naples residents and visitors opted to embrace a style more in tune with our climate. The “Tropical Christmas” service, held in Lowdermilk Beach Park on Christmas Eve, attracted about 3,000 people.

Christmas just not the same without snow and cold temperatures? We understand, but “traditionalists” take heart: Jesus probably wasn’t born in the cold, anyway (or with snow outside, either – Israel hardly gets any!). So embrace the warmth and try out a tropical Naples Christmas for yourself!

Oh, and Israel does get a fair amount of cold rain and temperatures between 30 and 60 degrees. As an alternative, may I suggest Naples, Florida?
