If you’re from LA and know someone from pretty much anywhere else they’ve probably given you grief about the holiday season. “How can it feel like Christmas with palm trees and sand?” It’s the only time of year they can reasonably talk smack about Los Angeles’s weather so, naturally, they do. And while you may be tempted to give them this small victory since you know for the next 5 months they’ll be huddled inside and fighting their kids about shoveling snow, we have a different recommendation. Instead of going to your grocery store parking lot Christmas tree seller, prove to the rest of the country that Southern California has some strong holiday vibes also. The kids will love going to these places to cut down your own Christmas tree, so besides the SoCal bragging rights, you’ll get some Dad points too.
