“Next to a circus there ain’t nothing that packs up and tears out faster than the Christmas spirit.” — Kin Hubbard   I wish the spirit of the holidays might linger into the final week of the year. It was predictably more subdued this season, even in Laguna. Still, I appreciated the Christmas lights throughout the village; particularly the retro lights from my childhood. The primary colors of those big bulbs are symbolic of Christmases past.

On this day a week before Christmas 2006, I have fled the warmth of home to sit on this bluff top overlooking the sea. My task for this morning is to write my last column of the year. I am in search of a sense of the holiday spirit. Why here? What will the column be about? These are just some of the questions that play in my mind as my eyes gaze far over the glistening sea. A small, spotted finch hops across the dust near the edge of the bluff. Fishing boats, with their accompaniment of scavenger birds, ply the waters of the cove in a leisurely manner.

Artist David Nelson, who has been with the Sawdust Art Festival since 1969, has never missed a Winter Fantasy. “For 17 years, we’ve work really hard to make sure it’s not the Sawdust with Christmas lights,” Nelson said. Although the lights are plentiful, the art show, which boasts 170 exhibiting artists this year, is not just a popular alternative for mall shopping. “It’s become a really wonderful, happening community event,” Nelson said.

Suzie Harrison Reindeer trotting down Forest Avenue guiding Santa to his house followed by a parade of locals young and old is just one of the many scenes to be expected at tonight's Hospitality Night -- Laguna Beach's biggest annual community event, an event that has become a tradition for more than 25 years. It's a time for friends, family and neighbors to enjoy the holiday festivities in Downtown Laguna. There's lights, cameras, Santa and all the action one could ever wish for in a holiday event ... even greyhounds with antlers posing as reindeer.

ACT V is fine place for city yard (Re: "Should the city corporation yard be moved to ACT V?" Coastline Pilot, Dec. 20) Absolutely. That was the recommendation of the 1996 report, and the site is logical for a corporation yard. As I recall, when Wayne Peterson was on the council, he stated that he had inspected every possible location for it and only ACT V met any sensible criteria. Bastardizing the Village Entrance by enclosing the corporation yard inside it is silly, a poor use of some of the most valuable land in Laguna.
