Los Angeles doesn’t fit the usual Christmas picture celebrated by Rockwell paintings, but that doesn’t mean we’re not full of holiday cheer! From light shows to snow tubing, the City of Angels has plenty of ways to get you in the holiday spirit. Take a break from shopping and the holiday parties to have fun the LA way!

L. A. Zoo Lights

Zoo Lights is one of the most popular ways for zoos to get into the holiday spirits! Los Angeles Zoo endeavors each year to make a name for itself in the zoo world with its astounding displays. Already underway and continuing through Sunday, January 7th, Zoo Lights fills the Los Angeles Zoo with animal-themed displays and aesthetic wonders. Animated animals made of Christmas lights run and play, while the visitors are guided through the zoo by lit-up trees and hanging lights. Tickets can run from $10 to $21.

Snow Los Angeles

Not all of us have the time for a trip to Big Bear or Truckee, so Snow Los Angeles may be your best bet for enjoying snow while you’re still in the city. Elysian Park, over by Dodger Stadium, is going to be loading up with 10,000 square feet of synthetic snow! It’s not quite the lacy powder you’re dreaming of, but it’s good enough for snowballs and snow tubing, both of which you can enjoy the entire weekend of the 15th.

Santa Monica Pub Crawl

It may not be everyone’s cup of tea—but it’s lots of people’s glass of beer! The Santa Monica Pub Crawl is more than its name implies. While it certainly is an organized route of bar-hopping around one of LA’s most celebrated districts, the Santa Monica Pub Crawl benefits a worthy cause—the $20 admittance fee helps the Westside Food Bank support families this holiday season. So raise your glass to good cheer this holiday season and enjoy some of the best food and drink specials that the popular participating restaurants offer. Holiday-themed apparel is always welcome! It’s happening Saturday the 16th.

Fa-La-Luxury
