Those celebrating Christmas in the tropics will love my Seaside Santa
. It is a delightful confection featuring a gently swaying palm tree, and several of the wading birds so typical of tropical climes. Santa’s robe shows a roseate spoonbill, an egret, and a white ibis feeding before the setting sun. Santa’s robe is further embellished with a cascade of bougainvillea over one shoulder, and the trim on the robe evokes the coral found off the shores. The beach is indicated at the very hem of his garment, and your favorite tropical locale can be added in simple lettering.
Santa even wears flip fops, and he’s kind of sunburned, as would a resident of the Arctic become on his visit south. If you wish, you can add sunglasses to give him the total beachy look.
