An Information Guide to Duck Key in the Florida Keys
























Christmas on Duck Key in 2003


Santa arrives on Duck Key with help from the Conch Key Fire Department.


Pictured below are some of the holiday displays visible on Duck Key this Christmas season. Many homes had colorfully lit balconies and palm treesfestooned with lights. One home had a Snowman, and several island residents decorated trees with huge ornaments. There were a few Santas in sleighs, a number of religious displays , and many reindeer.


On the subject of reindeer,

Bob Adams forwarded e-mail explaining that the Alaska Department of Fish and Game reports that ". . . both male and female reindeer grow antlers in the summer each year", and "male reindeer drop their antlers at the beginning of each winter, usually late November to mid-December."

"Female reindeer retain their antlers till they give birth in the spring. Therefore, according to every historical rendition depicting Santa's reindeer, every single one of them, from Rudolph to Blitzen, had to be a girl."
