It's Tradition

Good Morning Friends. December has truly just begun, but the holiday spirit is in full swing for this girl. I always have so many "to-do's" on my list, and I never seem to get around to doing all of them, no matter how good my intentions are.

Don't you have certain holiday events and traditions that you look forward to each year that no matter how many times you do them they instantly bring memories flooding back?

Here are a few of the top MUST DO's for me this year!
{Visiting the Henry Plant museum for the Victorian Christmas Stroll. Beneath towering silver minarets, an extravagantly adorned former Tampa Bay Hotel captures the spirit of the season – Victorian style.  There are 14 exhibit rooms; each dazzling with trimmed trees uniquely designed in 19th century themes and antique holiday accessories.  While strolling down the Grand Hallway, your spirits will soar as you become immersed in carolers singing, Charles Dickens, much loved toys and wrapped gifts, Christmas stockings and Old Saint Nick.}

{Symphony in Lights is a holiday light display at a local outdoor mall. The Shops at Wiregrass is trimmed top to bottom with over 250,000 lights, 47 miles of wire, 2,000 watts of sound, and 10 tons of holiday d├Ęcor all dancing in concert to the music of the Trans Siberian Orchestra. Center Court transforms into a Winter Wonderland of snow flurries as crowds are mesmerized by this incredible display of light, sound and snow.}

{I wonder which one of Santa's reindeer this is? Wild Wonderland lights up Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo with seasonal cheer and more than a million twinkling lights. Meet Santa, his reindeer and their feathered friends – the penguin colony.}

{Looking at Christmas lights, even on a palm tree instead of a pine tree just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.}

What is on your holiday "to-do" list this year?

  1. One of them I have checked off: see the lighting ceremony at the park downtown Omaha. It was magical!
