'Tis the season to soak in the joys of Christmas, so when we find out that one beloved Garden State shore town has made the top 25 in a list of the best Christmas towns in America, we rejoice. Can you guess which New Jersey town it is?

It is, of course, an awesome honor to find yourself on the same Christmas list that includes North Pole, Alaska, and Santa Claus, Indiana. if your name does not have a direct Christmas connection, and you still make the list, you must be doing something right.

So when the fine folks at Pure Wow named Cape May one of their best Christmas towns, we need to take a minute to embrace that. Cape May actually came in at #19 on the list.

By the way, even though the following Monmouth & Ocean County towns didn't make the list, I'm going to take it upon myself to give honorable mentions to the following gorgeous towns...

Spring Lake

Point Pleasant Beach


Red Bank

Toms River

Asbury Park

That's not a complete list, but I really do love to be in any and all of those towns around the holidays, and please feel free to add your favorite in the Comment section.

Back to Cape May, it really is a very special place around Christmas time. The Christmas tree at the Gazebo, the decorated homes and B&B's, and the fact that it doesn't only transport you to Christmas, it transports you to Christmas past. It's literally like being in a Christmas time machine.
