While we're not in the midst of suburbia, where I'm told the residents really go nuts with Christmas decorating, San Francisco is still quite cool during Christmas. Here is a small glimpse from photos today... (finally done the Christmas shopping for family - many shops were perused for their respective benefits. We hope they like.)
Inside the mall on Market and 5th Streets:
Street view including the Apple store looking along Stockton and Market: (not strictly Christmas but still interesting - and yes that is steam coming from a manhole in the road - it always happens - and if you look in the background, there are lights from the outside of Macy's.):
Macy's shops around the outside of Union Square:
They also put up the Christmas tree in Union Square every year: (sorry if it's blurry)
On the left of the Macy's store, a large tree has been put up in the Neiman Marcus store - this one and Macy's are kinda like Kirks department store in Wellington:
Anyway, that's enough photos for now - I didn't take that many today. I just have one more, but that has its own post!
