Christmas is everywhere in Winter Park. It doesn’t look like it does in other places.
We have snowmen made of oranges.
We have sunshine and palm trees.
We have lots and lots of tall oak trees. They are the pride of Winter Park. A few years ago some residents put their trees to good use. They hung large Christmas balls of light from their tall trees. It caused quite a sensation and now they are seen all over Winter Park. Our main street of shops and restaurants, Park Avenue, has red, green, blue, and white balls floating over the cars this year.
Some streets stick with classic white balls.
One house rebelled with purple.
No ornaments for this enormous lakefront house. Their spectacular palms steal the show during the day. With their Christmas lighting they are really incredible.
A fun event that takes place monthly in Winter Park is the Enzian sponsored Popcorn Flicks. (The Enzian is our treasured art house movie theatre.) The second Thursday of each month all are welcome to a free showing of a classic movie in Central Park. Families come with chairs, snacks, and blankets. Appropriately, this month’s film was “How The Grinch Stole Christmas”.
