Dickens Christmas Fair & Cable Car Carolling in San Francisco

Last weekend, we enjoyed many of our family’s traditional Christmas
events, including: going to
The Great Dickens Christmas Fair
and singing
carols on a cable car in San Francisco. We picked up my daughter Jessica
and her boyfriend Matt at SFO airport on Wednesday. (They were due home from
college Tuesday night but their second flight was cancelled and they had to stay
over in Dallas, Texas, courtesy of American Airlines.)

On Saturday, Jessi and her friends dressed up to go to the Dickens Fair at
the San Francisco Cow Palace. My mother and friend Laura went too. Sunday,
we went to the Lessons and Carols service at
St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church
in Saratoga, then picked up Matt and drove to the city to sing carols with
my parents. (Jessica revised our carols book this year.) We rode from Van
Ness and California up and over Nob Hill to the Embarcadero. We walked
around there to see the decorations before taking the
cable car back. Today, my mother is coming to San Jose to assemble and bake
fruitcakes. Tonight, we go to Christmas Eve service at St. Andrew’s.
Christmas is at our house tomorrow; we are expecting 12 for dinner.
