Why Miami Christmas Is the Best Christmas

It's Christmastime again! It's that time of the year when the weather gets colder and the people get warmer (generally), and when red and green become the most popular colors around town (and on ladies' fingernails). The radio stations start playing that jolly Christmas music, and the cheesy - yet equally classic - holiday movies are on repeat on your TV guide.

It truly is a great holiday, and the only thing that can make it better is a Miami Christmas. Yesterday, my colleague made the case that spending Christmas in South Florida is worse than having all your presents stolen by the Grinch. But for those of you who think Christmas is all about snow or mittens or scarves or freezing cold weather, ya'll got another thing coming. This holiday is primarily about family and good friends, and while you can take your family and friends out of Miami, it's best if you didn't.

Miami Christmas is the best Christmas, and here are five reasons why:

5. Santa's Enchanted Forest
Yesterday, Hannah argued that Santa's Enchanted Forest doesn't exactly provide the traditional Christmas experience. But come on -- don't pretend as if you've never been there. Sure, it can get a little grimy -- especially if you've been going since your chonga middle school days -- but it is festive nonetheless. You can take a picture with Santa, and then pig out to carnie fare (before eating a pig of your own --but more on that later). Santa's is a Miami thing, and we're okay with that.

When people bitch about "No snow" I always ask, "how deep do you suppose the snow in Bethlehem was on Christmas?"
