ONCE UPON a CHRISTMAS ...

For years I have enjoyed attending the Victorian Christmas event at the lovely Banning House Museum in San Pedro, California.  I was fascinated by the many subtle differences between how Christmas was celebrated on the America's East Coast during the late 1800s, and the way So. California's pioneering entrepreneur, Phineas Banning, marked the holidays in his unique mansion near the developing Los Angeles Harbor.  Join me for a tour of the house and grounds in my article, Once Upon a Christmas, which sweeps readers back in time to another era.  The feature article was in the Nov/Dec 2012 issue of AAA Magazine.  Unfortunately, this article has been removed from Westways' archives and is no longer available.  I will scan it and post it as soon as possible.
