A Seaside Christmas is the Kind of Christmas for Me

Going with the theme The Christmas Song (one of my favorite Christmas songs) by Nat King Cole, commonly known as Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire, I can’t help but think a seaside Christmas is the kind of Christmas for me. Although I love chestnuts roasting by an open fire, Jack Frost nipping at my nose, turkey, and mistletoe, the thing I love most is a seaside themed Christmas. Most of my house and Christmas Tree decorations are turquoise and beach themed. Last year, I was able to spend the week before Christmas in Puerto Rico. Now that’s the perfect place to celebrate a seaside Christmas. Well, I found my Atlantic Canadian seaside Christmas, not by the sea, but at Turner’s Christmas at the Coliseum. Everywhere I looked I found sea inspired Christmas decorations. This Christmas extravaganza made me feel right at home. Although I won’t be on a tropical beach this Christmas, at least I know that I can surround myself with ocean inspired decorations, not to mention the fact that I’m conveniently located 20 minutes from the beach.

The Christmas Song in itself could represent Turner’s Christmas at the Coliseum, because everything about this holiday event is referenced in the song: “Yuletide carols being sung by a choir/And folks dressed up like Eskimos/Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow/They know that Santa’s on his way/Although it’s been said many times/Although it’s been said many times”. If you weren’t able to make it to this special event this year, be sure to stop by and visit next year. You’ll be sure to find your special kind of Christmas at this event, whatever kind of Christmas that may be.
