December has always been an exciting month for our family on Loma Ave. Our family connection to Jingle Bells (Mom being the great granddaughter of James Lord Pierpont, author of Jingle Bells) always generates that little extra spark of excitement and magic for us around the holiday season.
Mom would certainly never boast about our family connection to Jingle Bells, but her joyous and infectious smile, and her yearly, Jingle Bells themed holiday decorations hinted she's at least a little proud of her place in the family tree.
Each December, jingle bells hang on the front door, announcing the arrival and departure of all visitors with a happy jangle. We even had a door chime that played Jingle Bells until the well used winding mechanism finally expired.
Coronado and San Diego Offer Holiday Frolic
The City of Coronado kicks off the holiday spirit boost in early December, dressing each and every Orange Avenue pine tree in a coat of colorful lights. Follow Orange Avenue along this sparkling, seasonal path and walk or bike to The Old Ferry Landing to enjoy the festive city skyline, often doubled in reflection on the glassy waters of San Diego Bay. On the way, be sure to stop by Cafe 1134 or Starbucks to pick up your favorite holiday hot toddy.
Within days of the tree lighting tradition, pedestrians take charge of a Orange Avenue to stroll amongst holiday parade goers and in to quaint and cozy shops during merchant's open house. Young and old are thrilled to see Santa arrive by fire engine to oversee lighting of the "big tree", the tallest holiday tree you'll likely ever see!
These are just a few examples of holiday activities our family has had the good fortune to enjoy while living on Loma Avenue. A multitude of musical, theatrical and artistic events await you, just outside your front door. This small but strong community has provided cross-cultural experiences to expand our minds, excite our imaginations and grow our hearts.
We love this home and our wish is to
partner with a special buyer who appreciates this opportunity to own a beautiful, master-crafted house in an absolutely ideal beachside location. We hope you love this home too, so bring your aesthetic vision, your sense of adventure and your good walking shoes. Stroll the neighborhood, take a walk on the beach of this seaside town we call "our little slice of heaven". It's your turn to build your own precious traditions and enduring memories within these walls.
