Lauren and I try to cram in as many Christmas activities as possible in December, which can prove difficult with finals in full swing. When we were living together we would pick a day to wake up, have tea, go Christmas shopping, come home and wrap presents, and then finish the day off with a trip to Christmas in the Park. The tradition is continuing despite no longer being roommates!
Christmas in the Park is a San Jose tradition, Caesar Chavez park is lit up with hundreds of Christmas trees, props, rides, and carnival snacks. There's ice skating, and caroling, and their "Loaded Hot Chocolate" is so rich I can never finish one on my own. We get dressed up in festive attire every year, but this year we just forgot to take any pictures of our outfits at all, so I drew them!
