While having some holiday downtime, Jo sent us an update on one of the highlights of her Christmas break.
Happy New Year to all!
Last month, I took part in the Southern California tradition of visiting the Festival of Lights at The Mission Inn Hotel & Spa, where the entire property of the hotel is covered in nearly four million Christmas lights. There are also horse-drawn carriage rides, freshly fallen snow, animated Christmas figures, fireworks, a giant Christmas tree, and, of course, Santa Claus himself. The owners of The Mission Inn, Duane and Kelly Roberts, have been doing this incredible event for 21 years! It’s fantastic to see something on such a grand scale that’s put on for the enjoyment of the community. If you ever find yourself in California during the holiday season, the Festival of Lights a really cool thing to see with your family.
I hope everyone had a happy (and well-rested) holiday season!
