You probably think all we do here on St Croix is lie on the beach and soak up the sun, then snorkel for awhile until cocktail hour. Well, the next couple of months are pretty busy on our small island.

Thanks to SunBlog, here is what we do on Thanksgiving week:

“Monday, there are the famous and fun Crab Races at the Fort Christian Brew Pub in Christiansted, starting at 5 pm, or you can put your noggin to the test with Trivia Night at the Palms at Pelican Cove, from 7 to 9 pm.

“Thursday is obviously the day to worship at the altar of the almighty turkey, but being in St. Croix means you can give thanks over some fresh mahi mahi or wahoo too!

“Friday night is Jump Up in Christiansted! We do Black Friday (official first day of holiday shopping) right! Instead of 5 am stampedes into a department store, Crucians make it into a party! Christiansted will be jamming from 6 pm until 10 pm.

“If you don’t get all your holiday shopping done on Jump Up night, Sunday, November 29th, from 10 am to 5 pm, is the annual Starving Artist Day at Whim Museum. Local artists will be selling their handcrafted wares, so you’ll be sure to find something extra special and unique for everyone on your shopping list.”

Sound fun? Come join us. Christmas is even better!
