Holidays In Florida

What better place to celebrate the holidays than in Florida! With year-round warm, sunny weather, a happy holiday is almost guaranteed. If you’re looking for a white Christmas, Florida probably isn’t the place for you. But if you want to take a dip in the pool or hit up the beach after the presents are opened, you may be a Floridian at heart. Florida’s holidays (especially Christmas) are huge affairs. There’s even a town here called Christmas, and they prepare for it all year. Walt Disney World, Universal, and Busch Gardens have special holiday events for Christmas as well as other holidays like Halloween. Whether you’re looking for something small and low-key, or a celebration at the most magical place on Earth, there is something for everyone.

There are also parades year round for all kinds of holidays, fairs, and other celebrations. Besides the usual national holidays, there are many unique Florida traditions and events celebrated throughout the year.
