Our previous 6 Christmases have been in Southern California. So, I thought I'd share some of those photos with you. Since Orange County doesn't get much snow, they bring in their own.
These are the lights on one of the homes in Huntington Harbor. Folks even decorate their boats!
We put up luminarias one year. The stand with the candle on it tells the story of why we put up luminarias, since most of the people in our neighborhood had never seen or heard of them.
And finally, picture of our tree. Several of the decorations were ones I had made myself from the time I was little. But most were made of various sea shells. We accumulated a lot of sea shell decorations over our 6 Christmases there, so many that I can decorate the tree with sea shell ornaments alone!
