How Christmas in Florida Came About
We know you are going to be wondering about the region of Christmas in Florida to find out more about its name and how it came about.
In general, the name comes from how the fort in the region was built.
It was designed on Christmas Day during the 1800s. The fort was also called Fort Christmas and as a result, the name of the community became Christmas. It seemed like the right thing to do.
Over time, various other areas inside the community have also been named after Christmas. This includes Fort Christmas Historical Park.
