It's that time of the year...


Yes, it is that time of the year and San Francisco is wasting no time putting up its Christmas decorations.



This year for the first time in a number of years, we'll have 2 skating rinks. One at the Embarcadero and another one, right here in Union Square.



The tree isn't up yet, but many stores have already put up their holiday decorations. Others are still working on it.

Skating costs $8, and the rental of skates costs $4. They have small lockers where you can put purses, shoes or backpacks, possibly for a small cost.



Additional information here

Have fun!

Noël et ses villes de lumières !
J'adore cette période rien que pour cela. J'ai des souvenirs des illuminations de Paris. C'était magique.

And there will be one at the zoo, too. Starts Sunday through New Year's day. It costs $8, or $5 if you bring your own skates (on top of zoo admission).

Pretty cool, and thanks for letting us know, Janice! I might check out the one at the Zoo. Haven't been to the Zoo in ages and I think I have a couple of free tickets hanging out somewhere.

I love Christmas. I have difficulties getting into the mood this year, but I’m sure I’ll get there… Thanks for posting those pictures!

Ice skating, Xmas decorations, heavens is it this time of year again? I wish I could hang on to some memories of summer and forget about the cold wind and falling leaves... I'll make myself a cup of tea.

I really enjoyed catching up with the latest news on your side of the planet. It's a small world when citizens connect the way we do.

Oui, la patinoire au milieu de la ville c'est chouette, mais quand il fait 60°F à midi, bonjour la consommation d'énergie!
