Last Sunday I needed to get out of the house so I headed first to Pacific Beach. On my walk I walked past this Santa under the pier, setting up his pictures with Santa space.
After leaving the beach, I wasn’t ready to head home yet, so I headed for Balboa park. I had attempted to go to the Christmas Nights festival the Friday before, something I had wanted to do for years, but when I got there, parking seemed to be impossible and/or pricey, so I gave up and headed home that night. I figured there would still be Christmas decorations up though so I thought I’d just stay on this “hunting for Christmas decorations” quest.
Throughout my time there, I took some breaks to get a snack and sit and eat it and read, then I’d walk around some more, then walked over near the playground to sit and read some more. It was a lovely sunny day and it felt great to be outside. Last time during the Christmas holiday, I was in Campo, CA and there were few Christmas decorations, so I am enjoying seeing Christmas lights and decorations in my neighborhood and all the places I go.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this Christmas in San Diego post. I’m sure there will be more before the month is over. I’m curious about how Old Town decorates for Christmas, wondering if the skeleton mannequins still remain prominent there or if that was just for around Halloween time.
Enjoy your holiday season and let the lights light up your heart and bring you peace!
