After reading various posts and having friends on the island for different holidays I have a new goal. I want to experience every holiday at least once on Aruba.
We've been there for New Year's (the first time was on our first visit for our honeymoon and were unprepared for the CRAZINESS)
We've experienced Christmas there twice.
We are planning our next trip for April 2015 and will happen to be there over Easter. Not because of Easter, but that is spring break for our son and he can have a vacation in Florida with grandma while we go to Aruba for our 25th anniversary. Because we are NOT leaving a 17 year old home for a week alone, even if he is quite responsible.
Now hearing of Leslie's turkey sandwiches I'll have to try for a visit over Thanksgiving some year. I hear Halloween is a blast. And Aruba would be a perfect spot for Valentines Day. I guess Memorial Day, Independence Day and Labor Day would not have the same meaning to Arubans. But are there celebrations for the Americans that are there during those days?
I've not been there for Carnival, so that's on my list as well.
Has anyone been there for every holiday? What is your fave?
