Christmas 2014 in Los Angeles

December 23, 2014 – December 26, 2014 – I like spending Christmas in LA San Gabriel Valley because everything is still open. Christmas this year meant a lot of eating, vegging on the couch watching “classic” Christmas movies like A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas, laughing away to The Interview, going to church, and more eating.
