Christmas in the Virgin Islands

December 2018 Virgin Islands Newsletter

It’s beginning to look like Christmas! Christmas trees, poinsettias, houses decorated with tinkling lights, toys in stores, and sit down for this one – I’m sure I saw Santa. He was on a boat of course, how else would you get to a tropical reindeer-less island? The Virgin Islands are in full holiday cheer! Lets check out what fun, festive events are coming up.
