A "low key" Christmas Day get together at a weatherproof beach house on Folly B.

  • Vic's Residence

    301 W Hudson Ave, Folly Beach, SC (map)

  • Directional map will be provided prior to event
  • A few years ago, a friend & I hosted a Xmas event for those wanting something f/this day. WOW!!...about 70 turned up; so I'm doing it again.

    Come one, come all and share, socialize, and mingle in the holiday spirit!! Of-course bring yourself, but also please bring accompanying friends and family who are with you. Come for a only few minutes to say Hi, or come to stay for hours; but come if the house visiting spirit is with you.

    Enjoy a “White Elephant” gift exchange, holiday music, and good cheer for all.

    BYOB and a food item to share. No, we won’t be keeping track of who is bringing what, just bring something to share (app, main, salad, dessert, bread, whatever). There are ovens and stove tops available for use. Also a super wide cinema TV screen to keep up with all of the holiday ambiance.

    If you wish to participate in the gift exchange, please bring a wrapped/bagged “white elephant” gift (White Elephant gift: something you have that you don’t want).

    And AFTER or DURING this social…. A pristine beachfront walk on Christmas Day &/or a bar crawl to the walk to bars that are open on this day.

    This is a rainproof/weatherproof house with an open sky outdoor feel; so the event cannot be cancelled...but if wanting to walk the beach, dress accordingly.

    Walter, the temperature of the 22,000 gal. pool mimics the ocean temperature, so if you're one of the thousands of polar dippers at Folly on Jan 1, give it a shot.

    Well, y'all, the ex has the kids and I need some cheer on this day, so although I'm a "stranger" as of yet, I'll be there! Maybe I can get out and meet a few of u before then ...

    Just make sure you all bring that extra jacket, as a walk on a wintry beach can be quite calming to many.
