The kids were saying the other day that with temperatures in the 70s it just didn’t feel like Christmas here on the Outer Banks. Be careful what you wish for . . . 
It’s a cold and blustery Christmas Eve that we’ll have. The wind is from the north at 20 or 25 and it’s spitting a cold rain. Christmas looks better though–cool to cold temperatures but lots of sunshine. Not a white Christmas, of course; we’re a little too far south for that.
But it doesn’t take snow, or temperatures or anything external to create the perfect Christmas, for Christmas is a gift from within . . . a gift of joy to be shared with those we love and cherish, and even those we don’t always understand.
Yes, the wonder and magic of a child’s face as they open a gift that only Santa could have known they wanted is wonderful; the traditions we create as families are an unbreakable fabric for our lives; yet it is all a part of a gift we have within us, the gift of love and joy and the ability to share that with others.

So from all of us at Brindley Beach Vacations we wish you the all the blessings, joy and love of the season and may Santa bring you that special gift under the tree.
