Man-O-War Heritage Museum

Preserving History & Heritage on a tiny Island.

Jingle Bells… Jingle Bells….?


Seriously??  Yes!! Christmas is JUST around the corner.  I know a few die hard Halloween and Thanksgiving lovers will be appalled by the mere mention of Christmas in October, and yet here I am blasting Jingle Bells!!  Let’s call it a gentle nudge to help you get in the holiday spirit.  And I say “holiday” to encompass all the wonderful traditions from now until New Years.  But for now I’m going to focus on Christmas just to get your mind going.

So I was thinking of fund raisers for the Museum this year and I came up with something that I think could be a lot of fun. It’s not an original idea, because I have scanned the internet looking for photos to inspire you and there are plenty out there, but I think it could be SO MUCH FUN!! How about a Christmas Golf Cart Parade!! All of us on MOW have golf carts and I gussy mine up at bit for Christmas anyways, so why not make it a parade/competition for the best decorated cart on the island! I think I have stumbled on perfection here folks!

Let me set the stage….. Golf cart, lights, tree ornaments, Santa!, you name it. Get creative, go a little crazy and have fun. I figure if I throw it out there early enough you can think, shop, design and create the cart of your Christmas fairy tale dreams.  (When we decide on the date and entrance fee I will let you know)

Here are a few photos I found on the WWW to help you get started.







How’s that for inspiration!!
I think this could be SO much fun! And a great way to celebrate our community. Last year we had an amazing Caroling night that brought the entire community together and this is going to do just the same thing.

I am also hoping to have the Christmas Open House tour this year too. It was such a huge success with everyone and I have had people ask me already this year if we are going to do it, so I would love to if we have enough people volunteer to open up their homes.

So what do you think? Isn’t his going to be an awesome Christmas!!
