Christmas Camping

We will be taking the kids to Florida for the holiday's. I've tossed the idea of bringing a few Christmas lights with us to setup. Right now I'm just planning on hanging the icecicle lights from the awning instead of traditional lights. What have you all done when camping over Christmas?

Well, after mounting those 3M brand stick on plastic clips around the inside perimeter of our front windshield and stringing a set of the old fashioned Christmas Tree lights around this perimeter, we thought it looked so nice that we kept em there ALL the time, year round...and used em. Even got favorable comments from other campers in the middle of the summer. Have now changed rigs, but, will probably try it again this year....and...will likely just keep them up. Steve & Lynette

Put a miniature pre-lighted christmas tree on your steering wheel. Place lighted wreath on the side of the coach. Place lighted artificial rope of pine or pointsettas on dash by front window. We're decorated that way right now in Virginia Beach and it does stop folks in their tracks.

If you are planning on going to Fort Wilderness you are going to have to do a lot better than a few lights. Everything from big lawn blowup things to mouse ears hanging in the trees is acceptable. At night we love to ride the golf carts around and look at everyones displays. Some people bring separate trailers to store the lights they set up. It is very cool to decorate the golf cart as well. Wreaths and ribbons are always tasteful. Constantly playing Christmas music---not so much.

A few years ago, we wrapped the cactus in our campground with lights. It looked beautiful and the wounds healed in no time. We are full-timers with a 21-month old girl (to the left in the icon with a Q-tip in her ear). As a result, we're going to have to gussy things up this year. Should be fun.

Okay here is our plan. Wife picked up a small lighted tree, we will put red bows on the mirrors and icicle lights on the awning. Great pictures everyone. We are taking the 6 year old so I wanted to make it seem like the holidays for her.

Went to the Mesa super Wal*Mart and bought a tree of a circle of lights that hangs from a rod you stick in the ground. Fits in an inch high square box. Had a string of lights draped from one mirror to the other.

But now the MH slumbers the winter in it's own garage since we built a stick house in the north woods (near the grand kids).

We spend three weeks every Christmas at WDW in Ft Wilderness. DW puts up about 20 large inflate-ables and lights everywhere...including the golf cart. It's a lot of trouble, but we meet some nice people wandering around looking at decorations. DW has threatened to buy a bigger trailer to hold all her Christmas "stuff" and has said the golf cart can stay home if there has to be a choice.

We tried to make reservations there but they are full. We ended up getting them at the Palm Springs Resort.

We normally use the LED String Christmas Flashing Light. Like 220V LED White String Party Christmas Flashing Flare Light Lamp - Wholesale Factory Direct such long lights. For such lights, it's very shine even if there are several lights were dead.
Hope this helps.

A little imagination and a roll of duct tape goes a long way.
