Holiday Season at Willard Beach.

I’m always kind of amazed at how my little neighborhood embraces Christmas.  It’s not with huge lavish parties, but more with little impromptu events that will mark my children’s memories full of friends and food that people haven’t fussed over.  And I’m so glad about that.

Our local bookstore is bustling with people shopping local, buying loads of books to put under the tree.  Which is obviously the best present ever.  Our local bakery is full of tasty treats that are way better than your own home cooking, or mine at least.  You can’t go to these spots without seeing somebody you know and that adds to the fun.

At Willard Beach, there always seems to be somebody dressed up like Santa wandering around.  You’ll find him on a street corner waving at cars passing by, or simply walking down the road with a sack, or if you are lucky paddle boarding out in the bay.  I love this and am considering buying a suit of my own.  That’s free magic right there, Christmas magic.

I’m hoping that your holiday is full of books, tasty treats, friends, and Santa’s around every corner.  If not, strap on a suit and make your own magic.

Merry Christmas.
