Old Town Christmas

We headed downtown to see what kind of Christmas cheer we could find.  We started with the capital, checking out the tree and the giant Menorah.

 Then we headed over to Old Town to see the lights.  
Standing in front of the Christmas tree.
 We went to see the Theatre of Lights show and had to wait a bit for it to start. 
 They had lights all over the buildings and the tree that would dance to the music.  It was very cool to see before the show. 
 The balcony all lit up...
 Mark Twain gave a little Sacramento history and then read
"Twas the Night Before Christmas"
 On an opposite building the story was acted out with Santa, the tree and all the lights. 

If you can get down there, we highly recommend it. 
A lot of the shops are open and everyone has that Christmas cheer!
