Christmas Tree

It was 90° F today when I bought my Christmas tree. I'm amazed at how much the winter theme is present in the holiday decorations and cards, despite the tropical Florida heat. I'm having a hard time finding tropical themed Christmas cards. Most of the cards depict snowy winter scenes. Some of my neighbors have winter themed yard decorations like polar bear and snowman figures. Up north it seems natural, because the environment is in a wintery freeze. Here it appears more obvious that the religious holidays are infused with celebrating the winter solstice.
