There is lots of fun stuff going on in the Bay area over Christmas. First, I recently heard about the construction of KitTea, a cat adoption-tea house center. It is a bit like Oakland’s Cat Town. It’s very San Francisco if you know what I mean.
At the Tapestry Church, one can enjoy a re-enactment of Bethlehem. Featuring a sheep, camel and donkey menagerie, townspeople, baby Jesus and more, those who like their Christmas traditional should visit the church located on 1305 Middlefield Road, Redwood City. For those of the Jewish faith there is the 25 foot high Bill Graham Menorah being lit at Union Square on the seventh day of Hanukah, at 5pm.
Also at Redwood City is a true family event. Take the kids to see ‘Nutcracker’ at Peninsula Ballet Theatre. In its 43rd year of such a performance, all the kids get a free keepsake ornament too.
And for some physical activity the ice rinks at The Embarcadero and Union Square are open too. Or there is Mittens and Mistletoe: A Winter Circus Cabaret, perfect for the merry season at Dance Mission Theater.
Christmas is fun in San Francisco.
