December's Season of Celebrations & Sharing-
Holiday Lights in San Carlos, CA
As this week marches ever closer to Christmas, events around town are starting to wind down. The concerts are finished, Santa arrived via helicopter and fire truck weeks ago, and the lights have been lit on the tree in City Hall Park for some time.
But, in between errands, last minute shopping and work, there's still plenty of excitement to be had.
Lights! Indoors and out. All around town. Shining white ones. Beautiful jeweled colored ones. Enjoyed by almost everyone, they are a source of wonder for little children. It's hard to drive down a San Carlos, CA street without seeing beautiful, bright displays.
The San Carlos street not-to-be-missed is Eucalyptus Avenue, only a few blocks away from the center of town. People come from near and far. Traffic control turns the busiest block into one way traffic for these few weeks. People park and stroll casually up and down several blocks, marveling at the sights. As Christmas draws closer, a huge pile of snow is delivered (hard for my friends in snowy parts of the country to realize people really pay to have snow delivered!!) for children to play on and with. Occasionally Santa stops in and greets children young and old.
To learn more about Eucalyptus Avenue's holiday decorations, and to get a sneak peak at some of the houses, check out Lights of the Valley.
