December 26, 2011 – Florida

In Britain and in much of the Commonwealth today is celebrated as Boxing Day, but where I grew up, if it was to be any holiday, we’d call it Florida Day. Old folks take down the tree or finish the last of the Chinese from the take-out containers, and it’s time for them to head south. Some might say the smart ones took off right after Thanksgiving. And here in California the concept seems exotic, we never need to go to Florida.
