Christmas in Florida

By Linda Tancs

It may seem incongruous to have a town in sunny Florida named Christmas.  Originally named Fort Christmas, the tiny town of less than 2000 inhabitants east of Orlando boasts a full size replica of Fort Christmas, built in 1837 during the Second Seminole Indian War.  In addition to exhibits and a video on the wars, the fort brings pioneering to life, featuring restored historical homes in the age of homesteading, fishing, trapping and hunting.  The fort is closed today.  It is, of course, Christmas in Christmas!
