The Garden Christmas Light Display At Florida Botanical Gardens Is Pure Holiday Magic
For the best Christmas light display in Florida, head to the Florida Botanical Gardens. Every year, there is a tradition in Pinellas County that gathers Floridians from around the state to revel in the beauty of nature and Christmas. The Holiday Lights in the Garden is a one-of-a-kind spectacular that takes place at The Florida Botanical Gardens from the day after Thanksgiving to the last day of the year. Sparkling with over a million lights, come with me to see why this botanical garden Christmas light display is one of the best.

What are the best Christmas towns in Florida?
Christmas lovers rejoice. There are some truly magical Christmas towns in Florida. St. Augustine is not only the nation’s oldest city, but it has one of the best holiday displays in the country. The holiday illumination is spectacular, but the city also hosts a number of wonderful events. In the little place called Captiva Island, Christmas comes alive! This tropical southwest Florida island hosts a luminary, boat parade, holiday sing-along, and even a golf cart parade. There is something for everyone to enjoy. Don’t forget to check out the Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park in Homosassa. Each year, they have a celebration of lights with a synchronized light and sound show. It’s spectacular, so put it on your Christmas town list!
Where can you enjoy Christmas year-round in Florida?
Do you know where it is Christmas year-round in Florida? In a teeny town hidden in Central Florida named Christmas, of course! With less than 1,200 people, this town may be a little sleepy during most of the year, but when Christmastime rolls around, watch out! Every year Christmas lovers flock to the town’s post office. Why? Well, they want their Christmas cards postmarked with the word “Christmas,” which is super cool! The tradition goes way back, at least since the 1930s. While the town settles down after the holiday ends, they do keep some Christmas decorations up year-round, such as a beautifully decorated Christmas tree and a nativity scene. Will you head to Christmas this year to mail your Christmas cards?
