Holiday traditions are important in Florida

In Hernando County we do not have snow covered holidays, instead we have the opportunity to have Christmas at the beach or on the river. We are far enough north that the maple leaves turn red and many trees lose their leaves over the winter, but we do not have a Fall season with great variation of color. During winter, we get several nights when the weather drops below freezing and frost in the morning, but winter here can also include a number of beach days.

Bigun's BarBQ: Down Home Food

Bigun's BarBQ

Bigun’s BBQ is located in one of the long narrow buildings in front of the powerlines on Sunshine Grove Road near the intersection with State Road 50. The restaurant is easily noticeable from the street and it has a large smiling pig’s head on the side of the building.

There are a number of individuals who will only eat at BBQ places with a pig on the building so this fits the bill.

Most Valuable Goat (MVG) of the World Series

Mike Walker is currently the director of Parks and Recreation for the City of Brooksville. He pitched professionally for 14 years playing for both the Chicago Cubs and the Cleveland Indians who met in this year's World Series. Even though he pitched for both teams, he is a Chicago Cubs fan at heart. Mike was born in Chicago and is a lifelong Cubs fan, so he set about to reverse the curse of the Billy Goat.

Superstitions are a part of baseball. A player may not wash his clothes when he is playing well. Fans may have the same game day routine to try to keep their team winning.
