The decorating has begun! One day after Thanksgiving, the Christmas decorations come out. We haven't even finished off our turkey leftovers and people are already celebrating the upcoming holiday season. Chanukah starts at sundown on Sunday, December 6th, early this year. I haven't even found my menorah!
The office looks great and smells like pine!

Santa Claus and his reindeer are flying over Wilshire and Beverly Drive in Beverly Hills. This was a major event when I was a kid. We'd walk out of Blum's and look up to see Santa...thrilling!

Here's a vintage photo from 1937, taken by Herman Schultheis. This is Wilshire Blvd. in the Miracle Mile area, looking east at Burnside Ave. I don't remember Santa flying over the Miracle Mile. He looks grand!

I haven't begun to decorate at our house. We're in the midst of some home improvement inside and we still have the Thanksgiving balloons from Thursday's feast perched over our doorway!
