Christmas in California

December 27, 2018

When people think of what Christmas looks like, they invariably think of lots of snow and pine trees. The stereotypical White Christmas. But when you live in California (unless you’re in the mountains), this is more what Christmas looks like: green grass, blue sky, the occasional palm tree.

For Christmas this year we had 60 degree weather, so we ended up going for a bike ride to get out of the house for a bit and enjoy the sun. We biked up the Stevens Creek Trail and then swung over to Google, since it makes a good spot to pause before turning around. There was a bit of a cool breeze, so I ended up being glad I brought my biking jacket. But otherwise the weather was great.

Having grown up in New York, I do occasional miss snow at Christmas. There’s something enjoyable about being surrounded by snow when you can hunker down in a warm, bright house. But I don’t miss traveling in snow (and ice); that just sucks. So I’ll take our warm, sunny winter weather and enjoy how it makes it easy to go places over the break.
