The Christmas Spirit filled the air with smells of pine and cookies arousing our senses. Hundreds of people came to watch as their children and their neighbor’s children sang carols on platform risers with smiles on their faces and sugar rushing through their veins.
Churches and schools from all over Panama City Beach served sweets of all kinds on decorated tables. The choice of beverage was consitently a clear soda mixed with a sherbert and fruit concentrate. A few had cake, but most had cookies.

This time of year always seems to bring such joy. Smiles were everywhere and so were friends.

Merry Christmas everyone.Print Story
