The second annual nothing-to-do-with-Christmas holiday post

Some people get bent out of shape about not being surrounded by snow during the winter holidays.

I am not one of those people.

Palm trees with lights - even if they're located in someone's front yard next to a fountain that could generously be called tacky - are just fine with me.

Lawn ornaments representing the crew from Peanuts aren't bad, either.

Whatever you're celebrating (or have already celebrated) this December, and whatever weather you're celebrating them in, happy holidays from snow-free Los Angeles.

WonderWife™ and I were just out in the backyard, talking about how it didn't feel much like Christmas. After 14 years in sunny So Cal, I'm still not used to it.

Merry Christmas, YEO!

Ha! Merry Christmas to you and the entire DGB family! (Here's hoping this misguided holiday-specific greeting might help you get back in the good graces of that Christian family group.)

Nice tacky photos. We have them (although under 3 feet of snow, they was hard to find for a while) too (the lights and the classy blow-up things).

B - Thanks, glad you like 'em. That was definitely related to my point - much easier to enjoy without the annoying snow getting in the way.
