Montclair’s Natural Christmas Tree

Our favorite Christmas Tree is at the intersection of Shepherd Canyon Road and Skyline Boulevard, bar none.  It’s a grand old evergreen that greets you all the time, but grabs your attention under certain conditions.

Last week, Mother Nature decided that it was time to decorate this Christmas Tree without uprooting it.  We’re fortunate that local photographer Bennett Hall captured and shared this ephemeral beauty.

Keeping this peaceful image in mind, we’re now heading to the Paramount for the music.  The Oakland East Bay Symphony’s holiday concert is one of those crazy, crammed, family-friendly occasions.

You can’t consume the holiday spirit in one gulp, but we wanted to share a sip or two here.  Cheers!
