How do Floridians spend Christmas Eve? This year 837 of them donned Santa gear and surfed at Cocoa Beach while several thousand more looked on. The annual Surfing Santas event started in 2009 as a family affair and grew each year as the family was joined by additional Santas, reindeer, and elves. While the waves this year were weak, the holiday spirit was not and the lively beach party was an entertaining way to spend the morning.
Merry Christmas, friends!
