I am currently writing a book that is set in a warm climate. I thought it would be fun to post about some of the traditions of Christmas in Southern California.
When you live in a place with more palms than snow, stereotypical images of Christmas just don’t work. It’s awfully hard to go on a sleigh ride at the beach, after all. But Californians, being an imaginative lot, have come up with a whole batch of variations on Christmas traditions and some new ones of their own, too.

My favorite was how Santa arrives on a surfboard. He is dressed in a red wetsuit with white trimmings. Now that would be fun to see in person.
