What South Waltoners hope to find underneath their trees

Christmas is all about tradition. And one of our traditions at The Walton Sun in the last few years is to ask residents of this coastal community what they want to find underneath their tree this Christmas. Many were eager to share their hopes and dreams, which we are sharing with you.

Miramar Beach resident Carol Annino said since she usually does not buy jewelry for herself and has not bought any in a long time, she would love to find a small box with a silver bracelet inside under her tree. (Me too, Carol!)

Walton County Tourist Development Council's new Executive Director Jim Bagby's heart's desire is for nine TDC members working in harmony for the betterment of the destination. Good luck to ya, Jim.

Sandestin resident Kent Lillie would like a Ferris wheel for Christmas.

Santa Rosa Beach's Jim Carter wants a new car to give to his lovely wife. Awww, how sweet!

"That one is easy," said Hilary Butler. "Since animal welfare advocacy is a passion of mine, my hope is that my one gift would be that all the homeless animals would get adopted to forever homes for Christmas!"

Freeport's Eileen West would like to see her kids and all seven grandkids under that tree, “but a big old bag of cash” would be nice too, because then she could go see them.
