Christmas in Southern California feels very much like any other day of the year. The weather may drop down below the 80s and you may have to wear a windbreaker in the morning. The indoor activities are pretty much the same- playing board games, drinking egg nog, listening to traditional Christmas songs, and hanging out with family. It's the outdoor activities that are somewhat different. This year we had family from Sweden visiting, and they took a plunge in the swimming pool. Then we did a hike up to the Hollywood sign in our shorts. Good times, just different.
