There is something very festive about palm trees decorated for Christmas. Aside from the one Christmas we spent in Egypt, every year I'm in Wisconsin or Illinois (except for the time the blizzard kept me here in Colorado) and the weather never includes sunny, warm weather. It seems especially desirable considering it's 15 degrees outside. Who knows if I'd like a tropical Christmas? Maybe I'm destined to stay in snowy climates. But I'll never know if I don't try. Maybe next year it will be mahi mahi and pina coladas (and a real good tan).
