Christmas in Los Angeles, 2014
Merry Christmas from Franklin Avenue! A few pics from our annual Christmas Eve traditions:
Paddle boats at Echo Park (which, sadly, is still a bit murky because of run-off from recent storms, but still nice on a warm, sunny L.A. Christmas Eve). Preceded by a delicious breakfast at Square One dining's Echo Park boat house location. It's a favorite of the Blogger Kid, who turned 10 on Christmas Eve!
4 p.m. Family-friendly Christmas Eve mass at downtown's Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels.
The Los Angeles County Holiday Celebration. An annual free three-hour event (3 p.m. to 6 p.m.) at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, telecast live on PBS SoCal. We stop by to enjoy the last hour after church.
Highlight this year was the Mariachi Sol de Mexico de Jose Hernandez performing "The Nutcracker" songs.
The weather outside is windy... but inside the Yule Log on KCAL-9 is keeping us warm!
