Merry Xmas from Miami
Even though we have headed to the frigid north to be with family for the holidays, I’d like to share a look at how we celebrate in our tropical hometown. Miami is beautiful this time of year and there is a lot going on besides Art Basel in early December. Locals make sure to visit the Night Garden at Fairchild Botanical Gardens, hang out in Coconut Grove, grab a meal at a sidewalk cafe, tour historic homes with The Villagers, see Santa at Coral Gables Merrick House, or stop off for some Bayside refreshments. Holiday parties extend to balconies and backyards, and convertibles ferry local dignitaries through festive parades.
And, of course, spreading the joy – taking gifts to kids is an essential part of the holidays.
Miami is getting a bit of a chilly blast this year (the 50s), just in time for Christmas. In the meantime, we’ve had a burst of snow in the DC area and are ready for dropping temps and wind.
Whatever you celebrate – stay healthy, warm, and safe. Happy Holidays!
