I'm a true San Diegan through and through. This becomes very apparent at the holidays. While other kids spent their Christmas' playing in the snow, I have very fond memories of playing on the beach with all my cousins.
To this end, we do Christmas trees a little different in my family.
Instead of hiking into the woods to chop down the perfect tree, my Dad goes into the backyard and selects the perfect Christmas palm to decorate. A few red balls and a string of twinkle lights later, I think to myself "It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!"
