Christmas Fun 2016
It’s been a fun (and BUSY) holiday season in Roseville CA this year full of sweet Christmas joys.
That includes a delightful, albeit wet, holiday parade, Santa in Park and Neighborhood Santa, the Downtown Roseville Crhistmas tree lighting AND two delightful holiday contests, one of which I participated in! That’s my Christmas tree above with one of the adorable kiddos that came to see our trees. Here are the results of the two contests for the Downtown Holiday Celebration:

Sophisticated City Fun – Small Town Joys
While chatting with a neighbor recently about the various holiday happenings and sweet Christmas joys, they made a comment similar to what I have often said, “we are blessed to live in a city with exciting and sophisticated city offerings such as the Westfield Galleria at Roseville and The Fountains at Roseville and more. Yet it also feels like we are in a small town community with so many sweet friends and neighbors all around and all the fun events from Movies in the Park to Parades to Food Trucks to the Downtown Holiday Celebration and so much more!” That’s one of the many goals we strive for with the city’s neighborhood association groups I volunteer with, along with community safety and information sharing, and so much more!
Fun Christmas Joys
Here are more of the photos I took with friends and neighbors, old and new. Won’t my grandkids be impressed with some of my newest friends, like the Grinch! 🙂 To see more photos of the Christmas Tree Grove and Gingerbread House Contests, head over to my Facebook page photo albums at my page, Roseville California Joys. 🙂
