holiday traditions in SF

 The Fairmont to gaze upon the flags and wish for Peace on Earth and salivate over their gingerbread house (2 levels) that's edible with the exception of the toy train. Listened to the choir at Grace Cathedral and then off to the Contemporary Jewish Museum.

The rain came in and instead of flip flops I was toting an umbrella like so many others while waiting in a long cue to enter. This place was hoping with a Yiddish kids sing along, craft events and of course two exhibits I'd been so anxious to see with The Snowy Day and the Art of Ezra Jack Keats and The Radical Camera: New York's Photo League 1936 - 1951. Bernard Cole's photo of a shoemaker eating lunch was one of my favorites. I was really moved when I saw the Story Corps Story Booth (above left with the bright light). Story Corps interviews are featured every Friday on NPR's Morning Edition. Learn more and listen here.  
Of course, no X-mas day in SF would be complete without Chinese takeout (it's tradition) and crab. Happy Holidays!
