Greetings, I am in San Diego for my annual holiday visit with my daughter
Kristina. I hate not being able to see her or my other daughter Adrianne over the holidays.
It makes the season so lonely. This is my compromise, I travel to San Diego between Thanksgiving and Christmas each year, and we usually find some holiday events to attend. Tonight we are going to Christmas on the Prada in San Diego. It is a two-day event filled with holiday performances, ethnic food from all regions of the world and they have all the museums in Balboa Park (about 12).
Christmas in Croydon
We are a small town, but this year there are a lot of Holiday
Events and events happening this year throughout the town. Members of the
Croydon Historical Society made 30 hemlock swags. The holiday decorations were put throughout Croydon on Wednesday, Dec. 3. On Saturday, Dec. 6, the
Croydon Congregational Church held a Christmas Bazaar.
Please make sure to mark your calendars for the following events...
An added treat for me this year is my sister is coming to join us on December 9. Family has become especially important to me this year after losing two nephews to cancer one in September and one in October. Both were young men in the forties with so much to give to the world, ironically they were both teachers and worked with troubled youths. I hope you all get a chance to take that long overdue visit to a loved one this year.
