There were a lot of differences between Southern California and Chicago that struck me during my first year in the Windy City -- like the lack of seat covers as a standard in bathrooms, and the revolving doors everywhere. But a major disparity was that Christmas is far more festive in Chicago.
On a recent trip to the Art Institute, I took a few pictures of what Christmas looks like in the city I call home.
And I apologize for the glaring void of Michigan Avenue and State Street pictures, but I lost my iPhone that had all of those on it. Damn Grinch must've been at work. (But thanks to a Google image search, I found a few to fill in the gaps.)

Christmas in SoCal means I'm currently in a tank top. And I don't hate it.
Tomorrow we'll see what Christmas looks like in Portland, as only my dear friend and author of ashore, Sam, can show us!
