"Perhaps the best Yuletide decoration is being wreathed in smiles."
There is a marvelous exhibit of giant Christmas bulbs at 101 California street in San Francisco. That is the downtown area, right at the Business and Financial district, and it is a really, really festive and charming way to celebrate the season! It is such a nice change from the usual bland gray skyscrapers. A nice splash of color for the cold, days of late autumn. It is going to be really brisk and cold the next week or so. Just in time for the holidays. YIKES. Snow levels are going to be down to the 2500 foot level, which means the Bay Area peaks will see a dusting of snow. As much as I am looking forward to it, I know for some it will be a dismal thought. I imagine this bit of color will lift spirits, at least a little. :)
Lets see some other decorations I spotted around town and beyond...
Christmas Tree in Union Square, San Francisco
Holiday banners in downtown Berkeley
Cute little reindeer at the Holiday Fantasy In The Woods, Tilden Park, Berkeley
