20 photos of Christmas, Day 15 | A church cross at sunset

A bird flies by the cross atop a tower at St. Paul's Anglican Church in Suntree on Sunday evening, just after sunset.

Note: Because I was raised in New England, Christmas is different in Florida, but it's still Christmas nonetheless. And I need to convince myself of that. So, in the next 20 days, including the holiday itself, I intend to find Christmas here in Brevard County and portray it through a different photo each day.

High clouds that built up late on an otherwise clear day made for a beautiful sunset Sunday in Brevard County. During a break from work, I set out to snap a photo, and the cross on St. Paul's Anglican Church in Suntree stuck out. While most of the posts in this series have been of a more secular nature, this edition is a reminder of the true meaning of Christmas.
