CAN’T BE TOO HUNG OR TOO LIT . . .

That’s Chenal’s Christmas motto: Restrained good taste.

 

My tree (below) is hung with dazzling ornaments from around the world, thanks to “Santa’s Little Helpers” – Juan, Miguel, Julio, Jésus, Rosario, Juanita, Luis, Celia and my marvelous landscaping team! Gracias!

And my home (below) is lit like a Christmas fairy tale by my same team of talented Tijuanans! (Note life-size Crèche imported from Guadalajara!) Who knew what Mitzi and Jennings WENT through all those years!

Of course, to appreciate the full effect you must drive by after dusk and roll down your windows for your family to enjoy my outdoor speakers flooding the cul-de-sac with delightful mariachi Christmas music, accompanied by happy holiday howls from neighborhood canines!

 

Yes, it’s Christmas in Chenal!

Feliz Navidad!
