MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY HOLIDAYS & NEW YEAR

EVERY DAY IS CHRISTMAS IN THIS SMALL FLORIDA TOWN

It's Christmas every day in the small town of Christmas, Florida. The town was named after Fort Christmas, a U.S. Army fort during the Second Seminole War.

Construction on the fort started on December 25, 1837, and the name seemed appropriate then and now.

Thousands of visitors come to Christmas every year to mail their holiday cards and packages and receive the official postmark of Christmas, Florida.

Sometimes Santa is even there with his rubber stamp.

January is a good month with some cold weather. We even turn our heaters on now and then. Most of our snowbirds are back so the lines are longer at the restaurants. It's also cool enough on many days to sit outside - sometimes too cool.

HERE ARE SOME INTERESTING FLORIDA EVENTS FOR JANUARY:

ALL REGIONS

FLORIDA WINERIES. Check the Florida winery nearest you. Many of them have wonderful weekend events that include music and wine tastings. Our site has information on 27 wineries scattered across the state. We plan to add even more when we have time to visit them.

FLORIDA TOURIST ATTRACTIONS. We have an extensive list of Florida Tourist Attractions. Some of them are well known; other are a wonderful step back into Old Florida.

FLORIDA FESTIVALS. There are several outside events this time of year. Among these are outdoor art festivals and folk and bluegrass music festivals.

BEST BEACHES IN FLORIDA. Almost anything you decide to do in Florida can be enhanced by spending some quality time at a great beach, and best beaches in Florida will guide you in the right direction.

Information on the towns and places hosting these events, or near them, including lodging, can be found at Florida Towns.

A few events are cancelled on very short notice. I do my best to ensure that our information is correct and current, but I recommend you call before leaving for the event to make sure it's still on.
