Christmas in Silicon Valley

San Francisco Christmas Tree

We are working our way through our annual Christmas activities and traditions:

  • Jessica and Sally and Lorene and I went shopping for Christmas presents in San Francisco’s Chinatown
  • John and I hosted the Silicon Valley Lines model train club holiday party at our home – and let the littlest geeks build a train line around our living room
  • We visited the Living Nativity in Santa Clara
  • We admired the holiday decorations going up all over the Bay Area

This weekend, we join family and friends at the Dickens Fair at the Cow Palace.  Next week we sing Christmas carols on the cable car in San Francisco.  It sometimes feels strange following our usual paths through the holiday season so soon after my father’s death.
