“The past is a foreign country,” author L.P. Hartley famously wrote in his book The Go-Between. Perhaps that’s why we hold on to the postcards…
Dreaming of a white Christmas? Annual Snow Night at Pine Tree Circle will once again be making that dream a reality this year. Topanga’s much loved holiday snow day was canceled last year due to COVID. It’s back for 2021.
The festivities take place on December 19, from 4-8 p.m. The Pine Tree Circle shops will be staying open to share holiday cheer and offer a local, homegrown holiday shopping opportunity. There will be music under the stars, hot beverages and holiday treats, and real snow—lots of it.
There is one major change this year for life in the time of coronavirus: instead of a community potluck, the refreshments this year will be catered by the management at Pine Tree Circle. The major thing that hasn’t changed is the spirit of holiday fun and community good will that began more than 20 years ago at the first Topanga Snow Night.
“We look forward to celebrating the holiday spirit with you,” writes Nate Daneshgar, Pine Tree Circle’s current owner, who is keeping the tradition established by the previous owners alive.
Dig out those mittens and scarfs, the sweater with the reindeer on it, and the knit hat with the bobble, and let it snow!
Pine Tree Circle is located at 122 N Topanga Canyon Blvd. Snow Night takes place December 19, 4-8 p.m.
