Steve and I have been traveling during the Christmas Holidays for many years. We began this tradition to spare our children the dilemna of deciding where to spend their Christmas. We spend our Thanksgiving holiday together and they spend their Christmas with the in-laws. So we travel and experience Christmas in other cultures. One thing I always try to find a place that is warm and a place where Christmas is celebrated.
I get a real kick out of taking photos of the decorations in other place. This is a Santa display in Punta Cana. He looked quite angry to me, glad he wasn't delivering my gifts!

You know, it has been a long time, just know I love the unusual, wow that photo is really fuzzy, musta been before digital was better. I don't recall where it came from, but it is a great "swing" jacket and the animals include a giraffe as well! I can tell you it is a travel staple as I have worn it all over the place!

Belize another Santa in the street! Now that is some information cafe. We stayed at Ramon's and although the beaches weren't the best, it was a fun holiday.

I love to see Christmas in different countries...always
unique to the area and very different from what I grew
up with. Broadens our horizons, eh?

I once saw Santa drop out of a helicopter on a beach the children were going crazy on the beach to get close to his bag of goodies. I love to look at the Christmas lights in other areas of the world, nothing like seeing a tiny thatched hut in a rural area with a light display of some sort.

Staying in the country this year. Just too expensive to travel outside the US this time around. Going out west to Scottsdale, Sedona and the canyon!
