It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year……..
The Christmas Holiday Season is here….the rush of Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday is over and now its countdown to the Season of Light! Twenty four shopping days as of today until Christmas and yes the malls and stores are bustling with shoppers galore. Aside from shopping there are other fun activities taking place in Cape Coral and the surrounding area to keep you in that Holiday spirit! Of course there is no snow or cold to contend with so you can decorate the outside of your home basking in the warmth of the December sun as well as attend various festivities without all that “bundling up”! That is one of the advantages of Christmas on the Cape!
