OF COURSE NOT. Christmas is a state of mind. It's not about location. It seems like Central Florida "celebrates" and decorates more than anywhere else I've ever visited, to be honest. We've got Christmas parades, Christmas festivals, Christmas parties, etc. I don't need to be cold to enjoy the holidays. In fact, I can actually enjoy all the outside activities without freezing my butt off. It does get chilly at night though sometimes.
I hate freezing my butt of at parades, so this sounds great! And I live in central NC so we rarely get snow. Probably an average of 1 time a year.

I have to say that If I was in Florida I would probably embrace it and get a tree to decorate with the adorable nautical xmas stuff! so cute

I couldn't agree more!! I have lived in the Orlando, Florida area since birth. I have never had a "White Christmas" and most of them spent wearing shorts!!

When I was a kid and got a bike for Christmas or any other "outdoorsy" kind of gift, I could jump on it and take off. No need to worry if it was too cold or snowing.

Cold doesn't equal Christmas to me. The spirit, the decorations, the crowded malls, the parades, festivals, Disney and Sea World special programs, etc. are all I need!

Christmas lives in my heart!
