Nativity in Los Angeles


Speaking of traditions, one of my favorite Christmas season traditions is making the trip to downtown Los Angeles to see the Nativity at Olvera Street. Each year, we take a weekday morning off and head out as soon as the early morning rush hour is over. It's still early, and the sun lights the statues from the side and behind. We enjoy the peace of the scene, then wander past the Olvera Street shops, finishing up with a breakfast of freshly made taquitos smothered in guacamole sauce.

NativityIt seems fitting to have such a beautiful creche in the plaza that is considered to be the birthplace of Los Angeles.
