Christmas in the City

The Christmas holiday season is my favorite. I love the happiness in the air, shopping for gifts for others, the traditions, holiday music, sappy Christmas movies, the tasty foods, the (slight) chill in the weather, quality time with family and friends, holiday gatherings… This is just a season that makes me extremely happy! To kick off this year, we had a near repeat of 2013’s holiday season kick off, which was our first in the Bay Area. A new tradition in the making? Could be! Here are a few pictures of our fun:

We started the day with a trip to the Ferry Building Farmer's Market.

We then came across these decorations on our walk from the Ferry Building to the Fairmont Hotel.

At the Fairmont we saw Santa, his elves, and a 22-foot-tall gingerbread house.

We then wandered on to Union Square to see the giant Christmas tree and ice skating rink.

And ended our day by "ooohing" over the cute kitties up for adoption in the Macy's windows.
