HAPPY HOLIDAYS MY DEARS!
The village is agog with activity everywhere! Kathy, Janet, Susan, are aflutter hanging tree lights, decorating the gazebo, hanging 8' cloth Christmas trees, and adding smatterings of Christmas decorations throughout the village....Lai is stretching high to decorate the archway leading into her patio alcove....Jane has dug out her yearly Christmas decorations that line the roof of her studio. Other villagers are busily adding wrapped gifts hanging from the patio trees and some wrapped gift boxes decorating the patio grounds.
Judy's lighted white Christmas trees in her patio are perfect for Christmas photo shoots.....
Other than decorating for the Holiday Season, do you know why the village decorates this time of year?????
IT'S CHRISTMAS IN SPANISH VILLAGE!

It's time for December Nights in Balboa Park, where the holiday spirit is abound in happy hearts engaging in celebration. Throughout the Park, caroling, Santa Claus (s), vendors, food booths, organ music, dogs and 2-leggeds dressed up in holiday garb, ethnic foods at the international houses, free admittance to all the museums, and so much more add to the festivities.
At Spanish Village, there is the traditional charm of the Christmas, twinkling trees lights festooned in the patio, artists share and sell their art in outdoor booths, the aroma of tasty foods and the sounds of live Christmas music drift through the air. Our 37 working art studios welcome you to see and buy their creative artistic endeavors.
Our December Holiday celebrations are incomparable to any celebration in San Diego.
drum roll, please....
Elizabeth got married! Yes, Elizabeth, the potter, and member of the village for near on 30 years, finally tied the knot! I hope she noticed the piece of pizza Brandon and I left in front of her door, along with Emily the village squirrel, and Franklin, the arachnophobic rat's wedding gifts to her.
Congratulations to you, dear!
DECEMBER NIGHTS are FAMILY and PET FRIENDLY!
I look at Brandon, my poodle buddy, and angrily wonder why he doesn't marry me....and then I remember it isn't the social convention for dogs.....although trumpet swans, hawks, and other non humans, do mate for life.....
Remember to come to Spanish Village's Christmas Celebration! And.... Come early, parking is limited.
Bring coats and jackets....it generally gets very cold.
A shuttle is available at various locations.
...and there's the traditional traffic jam, coming and going.
Brandon and I will be wearing fluffy, bright, red and green Christmas bows, and Franklin and Emily look forward to your discarded scraps of food!
Love to You All!
I welcome pizza and meatballs.
Peace and goodwill to all!
This Bella Blog is in remembrance to our best friend.
