bermuda in december

I have been receiving a few hits on this blog via 'Bermuda in December' searches & since a fair number of you are curious as to what it's really is like in December, I have decided to give you my very own rendition. I had the thought to post this in December, but that may be too late for those wanting to plan their holidays in advance, or for those wanting to have family over during this time.

While it's not as hot as the summer months, Bermuda is still beach worthy in December. For the past few Christmas', I've heard that the weather has been more than co-operative, resulting in temperatures of at least 24 deg C & sunny skies to match. The beaches have been filled with residents & visitors that do decide to visit the island during the last month leading up to the new year.

In the days leading up to Christmas, most stores (especially the ones on Reid Street) are open for longer hours, until nine in the evening. This will be sure to give you more than enough time to shop till you drop! Local artisans also come out during this time to display their crafts & live music is the perfect accompainment to an evening of street shopping! The Christmas parade is a fun time to come out & indulge the child in you. Watching the little ones enjoy themselves to no end is my favourite reason to attend. Here are some pictures taken last December. The Boat Parade is also a must see & a fabulous event for all ages. For who doesn't like to be by the water once the sun goes down to watch beautiful boats lit up with Christmas lights that illuminate the waters. And finally, Bermuda is a lovely time to visit in December, especially for those of you who are not inclined towards hot weather & are not wont to get that tan the hot summer sun leaves you with. Time to start planning your trip!
