    NEW CHRISTMAS FAMILY TRADITION @ FESTIVAL of LIGHTS in RIVERSIDE, CA.

     
    The usual San Clemente hotel was sold out for a Christmas Eve road trip so the kids and I made the trek up Interstate 15 north to the very classy (and expensive for us) Mission Inn Hotel in Riverside, CA. The beautiful & historical hotel was lit up with 4 million (yes, you read that right) Christmas lights, angels on the balconies and giant Nutcracker soldiers to greet you at valet parking!

    The California weather was warm and sunny. Our hearts go out to all those suffering in the rest of the USA without electricity and heat. Next holiday season, hop on a plane if you can & visit the yuletide extravaganza at the historically lovely Mission Inn Hotel!
