A MAGICAL TIME TO SHARE
TRADITIONS OR VISIT NEW ONES
lthough Christmas in Florida is different
than the snow-covered Christmases many
people know in the north, holidays here
aren’t without their traditions.
One holiday tradition for Brevard is the production
of The Nutcracker ballet produced by the Space Coast

holiday-themed issue of Space Coast Living. This
includes writer Kerry Firth’s story on the town called

names to streets like St. Nicholas, Cupid, Rudolph, Donner and Blitzen?
If you’re looking for gift ideas for the holidays, we hope you’ll check out our Holiday Gift Guide beginning
on Page 31. And for things to eat or make for the holiday, check out our story on a Melbourne baker that
focuses on dessert and dinner pie on Page 56 or Danielle Rose’s recipe for making stone crabs on Page 60.
Whatever you do this holiday season, we hope that it is filled with the blessings of family and friends.
Looking back on 2021, we are grateful for the opportunity of bringing this magazine into your home
to highlight the best that Brevard has to offer. Thank you especially to our advertisers who make it all
possible. All the best to you in 2022.
