We are NOT dreaming of a white Christmas!  Nope, we’re loving the palm trees and warm temperatures.  Here are some scenes from Christmas in Paradise.   Funny to see a snowman with palm trees.


Volunteers worked hard to create a holiday village in the ball park, as a fundraiser for Hopetown’s community center.


Complete with a big tree decked in holiday splendor.


And a place to send letters to Santa.


Even an ice rink (for kids) constructed special plastic sheeting, tabbed together like puzzle pieces.  It mimics ice – sort of.


Some of the kids have never seen snow  — but they dream of snowboarding.

Lots of homes are exhibiting a holiday spirit.  This snowman looks a little “pissed.”


Some elaborately.


This is my kind of Santa.


Here’s an unusual tree, creatively decorated.


Have you ever seen a cannon dressed in holiday style?


Kids at the local church put on an fun holiday play with elaborate costumes and beautiful singing.


This is our festive view from Motu Iti.


We are planning a quiet dinner on a friend’s deck, overlooking the Sea of Abaco.  REALLY missing our family.  Best wishes to all.


One thought on “Hopetown for the Holidays

  1. Nice photos. Not sure about the brown snowman.
    We spent time in Bermuda one Christmas time and they had a Christmas light boat contest and they all paraded by the beach. It was terrific.

    Merry Christmas to you both 🎄🎄☃
