Merry Christmas and Happy Chanukah, 2011

Other than an early morning trip to our local bagel store this morning, I enjoyed Christmas Day inside. But even that short walk (about 6 blocks total, there and back) offered some great Christmas merriments. Here are some I'd like to share:

This snowman belongs to a family that moved in recently.
They have put up an inflatable San Francisco 49er player on some Sundays.

You do not see enough rooftop decorations.
I'm glad I live in a neighborhood where you still might see something like this...
And something like this.

I love this.
The oil burned for eight nights.
The bagels in this store are very very good, too.
