This has to be one of the best lists of holiday activities I've ever seen, even on a commercial site.  Very well done!

Li,

I love all the transportation methods Santa Claus has.  In Hawaii, I have seen him riding dolphins, in other the colder parts he is on reindeers, at the Hollywood Parade, he is in a Rolls Royce.  It is wonderful how imaginative it all is. A

There's certainly no shortage of holiday past times to choose from on Salt Springs Island it seems, and with your beautiful setting it should be a very merry place to spend the holidays. Hope yours are wonderful!

Li: Looks like Santa is getting around; he arrived here at Canyon Lake today in a Wells Fargo Stage Coach.

This is a wonderful time of the year; we all enjoy Santa no matter how old we are.
