Holiday Lights

If you haven’t had a chance to check out the Griffith Park Lights Festival (or don’t feel like dealing with the traffic), you can watch a short, video version on the L.A. Times Christmas page.

This is my first L.A. winter. I love not having to worry about icy roads or bundle up every time I leave the house, but I did get a little weirded out this afternoon when I was walking to the bank in a T-shirt and I passed a parking lot full of Christmas trees.

I wish I could stay here and experience the kind of Christmas in that Corona commercial with the palm tree, but tomorrow I head back east for a few weeks of snow and ice and family. Cold weather is always hard for me to deal with, but at least this time I’ll know it’s only temporary, and that I already have a plane ticket back to this magic land of sunshine and palm trees.
