OCEAN BEACH, CA. The Christmas Tree for Ocean Beach went up at the foot of Newport Avenue, as one does every year.
This year several people suggested to me that it’s a real “Charlie Brown” tree. It appears to be missing some limbs or was damaged in transit. Nevertheless, it was put up and adorned by the traditional balloons.
OBceans are proud of it anyway, those that appreciate the effort. Some in OB don’t even want there to be a tree. Yet many do, and the Tree will tower over the annual Holiday Parade – one of OB’s most favorite events – this Saturday, December 5th.
