Holiday cheer, Palm Beach style

From Inlet Road, the island’s North Pole, and on down to the southern reaches of the town limits, holiday lights contribute Yuletide cheer to the balmy subtropical evening landscape.

The weather outside may is far from frightful, but the winter holiday spirit is delightfully embraced by many a Palm Beach resident.

There aren’t any “super-over-the-top” or overly exessive displays in evidence, no neighbors competing for who can outdo one another to replicate Santa’s Workshop in Las Vegas Strip style.

Most Palm Beachers, as one might expect, celebrate the season by wrapping palm trees on their properties in white or multicolor strands of bulbs or placing ever-so tasteful lighted wreaths on estate gates or their more modest entrance doorways and condominium balconies.

There are some exceptions, of course, with exceptionally bright outposts of Christmasy cheer to be encountered on an after-sundown tour of town streets.

A hula girl, Santas aplenty, glistening baubles strung from ficus trees or arched entry drives, a hedge or two outlined incandescently and some pink flamingoes moving in the breeze make just enough of a holiday statement in a place known more for understatement than glitz-heavy overtures.
