Tis the season to enjoy the sights and sounds of the holidays! While most of us in Southern California aren’t going to get much of an “authentic” feel during the holiday season, with temperatures in the 70′s and 80’s and palm trees swaying, we simply do what we can to get into the spirit. Luckily, many of our neighbors have created some holiday cheer to help us spread the joy with our friends and families.

El Segundo Candy Cane Lane

Since 1949, Candy Cane Lane has been an El Segundo holiday tradition. This block of houses includes a huge array of decorations including a visit from Santa on his sleigh sometime between 7:00 and 9:00 pm nightly. Visitors are encouraged to donate canned food for needy families in El Segundo. The event runs until December 23rd.

Location: 1200 block of East Acacia Avenue, look for the Candy Cane Lane sign. The street is closed to cars, however, nearby parking is not difficult.

Woodland Hills Candy Cane Lane

The Woodland Hills candy cane lane is located at the intersection of Lubao and Oxnard Streets near Pierce College. This eight square block area has been maintaining this holiday tradition of decorating with lights, characters, and artificial snow since 1952. Santa has been seen roaming around on occasion. Residents request visitors arrive before 10:00 pm weekdays and 11:00 pm weekends and many turn their lights off after that hour to discourage late night neighborhood traffic. Be warned: the traffic getting onto Oxnard backs up. Runs through New Year’s Day. It begins on the 2nd Saturday of December and lasts through the end of the year.

Location: Lubao and Oxnard Streets

South Torrance Sleepy Hollow

This South Torrance neighborhood is fairly remote, located in the Seaside section of Torrance quite a distance from the freeways. Many consider the trek to be worth it to check out the nearly 40-year-old tradition. It’s a cute neighborhood with non-uniform blocks allowing for some “old country” feel as you turn the bends. It is also recommend you park and walk. Runs through New Year’s Day.

Location: Entrance is near the intersection of Anza Avenue and Calle Mayor.
