Christmas in Southern California
While the year 2020 saw many of our favorite holiday events cancelled, we were still able to find a little Christmas spirit. In our hometown of Los Angeles, this included shops adorned in holiday spirit along the Redondo Beach Riviera and in Manhattan Beach, lights on Manhattan Beach Pier, the fantastic displays at The Grove and 3rd Street Promenade, and festive light displays in the neighborhood of Sleepy Hollow in Torrance.

While we always enjoy the time spent in our home state of California, this wasn't the Christmas we had hoped for or planned. We were originally supposed to spend the season in Europe, exploring the Christmas markets of Germany, Austria and Prague. The year 2020 wasn't what any of us had planned. And yet we're still here and healthy. We have plenty of patience and time, and the future looks brighter for us all!
