Merry Christmas, Mon...
Last year at this time, Tess and I were on a cruise where I proposed on Christmas morning in front of a television in our cabin with a video of a fireplace with Christmas carols playing. It was actually more romantic than it sounds.
Anyway, you can have your white Christmas, give me the tropics for the holidays anyday. For one, everything is much more relaxed.
We spent Christmas eve on a beach in St. Maarten. We'd shopped for Christmas presents the day before in St. Thomas where they decorated cannons instead of Christmas trees.
And for both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, we didn't have to worry about cooking or entertainment. We just hung around the piano bar.
Or sat around smoking Cubanos in the cigar lounge.
Yes, life is a beach in the Caribbean.
