Here a menorah, there a Christmas Tree. Our city is bedecked. Neighborhoods are lit, and businesses are colorful. Not only do we have more lights than last year, reflecting a small upturn in the economy, we seem to have a bit more hope in the air. Tomorrow night, not only do we offer the homey OB Christmas Parade, there’s a Balboa Park wide holiday celebration called December Nights.
It was originally planned as “Christmas on the Prado” to bring some folks into the park during December. The word Christmas was politically not ok. Perhaps the other museums off the Prado area wanted to take part in this park party too. The name was changed and the area expanded.
This year’s party begins tonight. We work Saturday night. I’ll remember to bring a camera with me….as well as my silkies, Alaskan coat, gloves and hat. The Geezer wears leather. Since I’ve not worked this chataqua before, I’ll bring a smile too.
