Happy First Advent – Einläuten der Weihnachtszeit

With the First Advent today Christmastime has officially started.
Christmas markets in Germany traditionally open their doors on this weekend and it’s the cozy time of chestnuts and Glühwein.

Also here in California homes are being decorated with Christmas lighting and harbor cities are gearing up for the boat light parades. Christmas tree lighting events in malls have already taken place last week before Thanksgiving and winter festivals like the Sawdust Winter Fantasy Festival in Laguna Beach do their best to get you in the holiday spirit. Take a stroll with us through Sawdust Winter Fantasy Festival with our slideshow below.

Happy Holiday Season!
