Here in Southern California we never quite experience the winter wonderland of our favorite holiday films, but we definitely don’t disappoint when it comes to Christmas spirit. Los Angeles recreates the snowy magic of the holidays through a variety of unforgettable festivals, events, and spectacular holiday décor and lighting. Whether you enjoy shopping beneath decorated palm trees, ice skating in the winter breeze, or strolling downtown among the sparkling holiday décor and lighting, Southern California offers endless festive fun.One big way Los Angeles gets into the Christmas spirit is through the transformation of its shopping malls. Seemingly overnight, Los Angeles’s beloved malls transfigure into the winter wonderlands of our dreams. Equipped with holiday dining, shopping, entertainment and–of course–decorations, LA’s malls have become treasured destinations for those near and far.
