Christmas, Florida — Visit historic Fort Christmas December 5 and 6 and get a taste of what a “Cracker Christmas” was like for pioneer soldiers. Aptly named after construction began on December 25, 1837, Fort Christmas was built during the Second Seminole Indian War. Fort Christmas Historical Park is the full-size replica of the original fort with seven restoed historical homes that “preserve the ‘Cracker’ architecture of East Orange County.” Take part in crack activities and pioneer demonstrations, and enjoy food and a craft fair. Admission is free, and hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Go to Fort Christmas Historical Park for directions.
