One of the sure signs that the holidays are arriving in Central Florida is when the snow falls in Celebration.
The annual event returns to the community, Nov. 25th and continues nightly through Dec. 31st.
This is the 19th year for the Now Snowing event. Celebration calls this Central Florida’s original and premier showing event, and it features one of the area’s only synthetic ice rinks.
Now Snowing is a month-long Winter Wonderland Spectacular featuring strolling Charles Dickens style Carolers, photos with Santa, horse drawn carriage rides, ice skating, train rides and nightly snowfall at 6,7,8 and 9 pm.
The event is a must for those who like the traditional style holiday!

Did you know that keeping a bar of Ivory Soap under your bottom sheet can help to reduce leg cramps?
Soap under the bottom sheet may not work for all cases of restless leg syndrome, but many people find it helpful.
Although it has not been studied for RLS, the scent of Ivory soap is effective against the pain of menstrual cramps (Journal of Multidisciplinary Healthcare, Sept. 1, 2008).
It is suspected that soap fragrance works by calming hyperexcitable nerves (European Jounal of Applied Physiology, August 2017).

LOS ANGELES – July 27, 2017 – Arizona, Nevada and Washington, D.C. are among the 11 states where it’s more affordable to rent than it is to buy a home. But owning a home still beats renting in Florida, according to a study by website GOBankingRates.
GoBankingRates surveyed all 50 states and the District of Columbia, and identified which states are best for buying a home and which are better suited for renting. For the cost of owning, the study assumed a 20-percent downpayment on a 30-year fixed loan.
In Florida, homeowners have the advantage. They GOBankingRates study found that the average monthly rent of $1,543 is $167 higher than the cost of an average monthly mortgage of $1,376. The difference amounts to about $2,000 per year that the average Florida family would save by owning rather than renting, though actual savings would differ by metro area and other variables.
