Our Mermaids (and Mermen!) are wonderful and magical and have special powers, including the ability to morph into Mer-Elves during the holiday season. They flit and flitter throughout the island spreading Christmas joy and cheer.
Some of our cottage owners like to join in, too, and after a little Swish! Swish! Poof! it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. From The Paula Deen Retail Store‘s new kitchen utensil ornaments and holiday wreaths from Seaside Sisters to Mary Kay Andrews\’ signature bike with lights, Mermaid Cottages’ holiday style is our gift to you!
And, how could dear old Santa be sure to find our little hamlet by the sea without the fantasy of lights at Fish Camp Cottage that owner Margo Cook creates every year? Tybee has been transformed into a winter wonderland…with a salty seaside flavor, of course! Yes, Tybee. There are Mer-Elves!
December is a wonderful time to get Tybee-ized! Will we see you this year?
– The popular Tybee Floating Christmas Parade, which features boats, skiffs and yachts decorated in their holiday finery, departs from the dock at the Crab Shack on Saturday, December 10 at 7:15 p.m. Don’t miss all the fun!
– Tybee Island will feature New Year’s Eve Fireworks on Saturday, December 31 to ring in 2012 at the stroke of midnight. Enjoy the fireworks display from the pier, the beach or wherever you choose.
– The following morning, the annual Polar Bear Plunge will offer the opportunity to jump into the Atlantic Ocean for a brisk and refreshing way to start the New Year. On Sunday, January 1 at noon, don your favorite costume and gather at the pier on the island’s south end for an invigorating dip.
