Happy Sunday! Happy Christmas! and happy last Home Page newsletter of the year. We’ll make it short and sweet so you can get back to gifts, carols, movies, or however you’re spending this Sunday.
Well, last week I promised you photos from the trolley tour I was scheduled to enjoy this week, but COVID had other plans for me. I hunkered down in isolation this week and enjoyed — among other things — friends’ photos of the houses along the trolley tour. If you missed it too, never fear! There’s so much you can enjoy from afar! Check out @415northpole on Instagram:
Alisos Street on the eastside is just one of the neighborhoods in Santa Barbara that goes all out with the Christmas lights. My friend Sara Caputo’s Veronica Springs cul-de-sac in Hidden Valley is also thoroughly decked out. Here’s her place:

If you haven’t yet picked up this week’s issue, make sure you do — and read it cover to cover, from the beautiful Garden Street home for sale on the real estate side, to Tyler Hayden’s heartwarming piece about local centenarian Roke Fukumura — a hometown hero and holiday inspiration to us all.
Happy Holidays from my home to yours!
