Christmas is here, and what better way to spend the holidays than finding festive entertainment around the city. Whether you would like to gaze at bright lights, enjoy a play or two based on Christmas stories, or even go take a picture with the jolly man himself, now is the time to celebrate.
Here in Poway, many residents have dominated the Christmas decoration element. On Hickory Court/Hickory Street, Butterwood Court and Rockrose Court off of Twin Peaks road. and Silverset Street, locals cover their houses with stunning lights to create Candy Cane Courts. This year they are open from Dec. 10 to Jan. 2 from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
If light sighting isn’t your favorite, then drive to the mountain town of Julian for a hot apple cider and a delicious piece of homemade apple pie. On Saturdays, you can stroll through the neighborhood streets and enjoy the sounds of wandering Christmas carolers and savor the sweater weather.
Down towards the coast, The Winter Wonderland at Del Mar Village celebrates the holidays with carolers strolling down the streets, a snow hill for children, meeting Santa Claus, a cake walk, seasonal treats to savor and holiday shopping at Del Mar Plaza.
If you take an interest in plays, then Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas is a great theatrical piece to see. It’s playing at The Old Globe from Nov. 5 to Dec. 26, and tickets start at $24.
There are many ways to spend the holidays, but the most important reason is that you spend it with the ones you love.
