Christmas in Florida

Coming from Minnesota I wasn’t sure what Christmas in sunny Florida would be like when I landed there last month. Certainly I knew not to expect snow, Christmas sweaters, Lutheran choirs, or even the rich meals that usually accompany our winter gatherings. But what would I find instead?

On Christmas Day, it was Thai and Turkish food (yum) and a mellow vibe. As I was introduced to the towns, lakes, and parks, my mental templates of Christmas melted away, and new images emerged—often more layered and subtle than those of the frozen north. Here in Winter Park I found my Christmas “evergreens.”
