Christmas in Miami
Christmas in Miami is a unique time to enjoy the atmosphere of a carefree beach holiday and tourist destination with many attractions, as well as the festive spirit of Christmas holidays..
Features of celebrating Christmas in Miami
This holiday is a family celebration for Americans. For this reason, one should not hope for special parades, events and fireworks - by the evening of December 24, the city calms down, which cannot be said about restaurants on South Beach (there are always a lot of people here) and nightclubs that hold themed parties and special shows on Christmas night..
As for the pre-holiday decorations, Americans hang wreaths of evergreen mistletoe over the entrance to the house and decorate the house with Christmas paraphernalia. Americans do not forget about decorating the house outside - they put luminous figures in front of the doors. And if we talk about the Christmas table, then there is always fried turkey, homemade sausages, cabbage and bean soup..
