TENTH Day of a 19th Century Florida Christmas

On the 10th day of Christmas, my true-love READ to me, about TEN Altamonte Homesteaders, the NINTH Post Office, an EIGHT year old pioneer, SEVEN Honorable Floridians, SIX swans-a-swimming in Lake EOLA, FIVE GOLD STAR BOOK RATINGS, FOUR orphaned children, THREE historic pyramids; TWO railway depots, and a meeting beneath the COUNCIL OAK TREE.

The origins of ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, some historians believed, began with Boston investors who built a hotel along the South Florida Railroad line. The real story however began a decade earlier, with a mishmash of homesteaders. Retired warriors, former enemies planted orange groves around a place called SNOWVILLE, a tiny community near another settlement named ALTAMONT. CitrusLAND: Altamonte Springs of Florida tells the fascinating history of a long-forgotten region that truly began after a deathly sick man was told he’d be dead within the year. His thousand mile walk, from Ohio to Florida, as well as a determination to prove his death sentence wrong, is where the real story of the HIGH MOUNT region began. Visit for details.

This history of Florida is so meaningful. They really have a colorful culture and history, they created it as if they are living the moment. And this day, it is already discovered and considered as a really precious event. May the people from Florida gives an essence to it. I see it as something that they should be proud of and they must share it because it is really cool. They created it and they are so expressive in the things they share.
